Cooler Master lifts the veil on MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ PSU

by on08 March 2017

High-end components and a hefty price tag

Cooler Master has launched its newest version of the MasterWatt Maker 1200 power supply unit that will be using only the high-end Japanese and German made components, the MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ (Made in Japan).

Cooler Master already has a standard MasterWatt Maker 1200 PSU in its product range, but the new MIJ version is a marvel of engineering and is definitely reserved only for enthusiasts and those looking for the best possible performance, reliability and quality, at least according to Cooler Master.

The new Cooler Master MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ PSU started out as a research project for the future of PSU design and was designed in cooperation with Murata, a well-known electronics and components manufacturer. The end result is a power supply unit that has 80 percent of components made in Japan and 20 pieces that were custom designed by Murata.

Cooler Master and Murata pushed the envelope to where many of the components used are rated to work at temperatures of up to 150 °C. It also comes with custom designed power conversion circuits and custom circuit board layout, unique transformer design, all of which offer impressive durability, performance and efficiency, allowing the MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ to work in fanless mode at up to 50 percent load (600W).

The MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ is slightly larger (224mm long) than your average PSU, has a fully modular design, 80 PLUS Titanium efficiency rating, and uses a single 135mm Silencio FP fan for cooling. If you are wondering about connectors, there are plenty, including two 8-pin EPS 12V, 12 PCI-e 6+2-pin, 16 SATA and 13 4-pin peripheral connectors.

Such high-end components and custom design always come at a price and Cooler Master MasterWatt Make 1200 MIJ is not an exception either as it will be available in Asia, Europe and North America in beginning of March 2017 with a suggested retail price of US $999/€999/£900.

We couldn't find any reviews of the new MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ, except for the one from, which gave it a rather high 9.1 score. While there are plenty of high-end PSUs on the market that are far less expensive, it appears that nothing can touch the MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ in terms of build quality, which makes sense if you are building an ultra high-end PC system and looking for the highest-quality PSU on the market.
