After testing this power supply, I have come to appreciate some of the fine details that Cooler Master has addressed. With so many choices in the realm of high-end power, the M1000 has gone the distance and fared very well.
Power along all rails was above factory ratings. While this isn't uncommon these days, the near perfect level of steady power is. I never saw fluctuations of more than 1/100 volt even under load, so rest assured that when you need power, it will be there.
The modular design also makes good sense, especially for those with an enthusiast rig or heavy duty CAD workstation. The ability to use only those cabling harnesses necessary for your list of components makes cable management and airflow much easier to deal with. Add to this the sheer number of cabling possibilities and you have yourself a very fine power supply.
But if this weren't enough, this power supply also runs at a very low volume level, even under load. The larger than normal fan has much to do with this and noise levels of the M1000 are a good deal less than most competitors' products.
So how much for all this? As of this writing, you can expect to shell out in the neighborhood of US$300 for this product. Comparatively this is toward the very bottom of the price range for similarly rated 1000-watt power supplies. It is also widely available at your favorite online store. I found very few that did not carry this product, so you can get it almost anywhere.
