For many years, the folks at Cooler Master have been in the business of creating aftermarket products for the DIY (Do It Yourself) crowd. Having begun as an OEM cooling manufacturer, they realized that more and more of us were very interested in making our own systems. After all, we can build to suit our own needs and save some money in the process.
More recently, they have delved into the performance segment of the market with offerings of power supplies, cooling and enclosures. Today's article will be covering one of their newer releases, the UCP series of power supply. UCP is an acronym for Ultimate Circuit Protection and the concept is to produce a power supply designed to meet the demands of the enthusiast crowd while offering an efficient design that will last for years to come. Indeed, Cooler Master has even covered this series of power supply with a 5-year warranty, something that is becoming quite rare these days.
So enter Cooler Master with another product for the extremist crowd. The UCP 700W is touted as being an enthusiast level PSU, but can it really stand up to the demands of a strong system? Join me as we find out for ourselves!
