Cabling Arrangement

Cooler Master keeps the cable arrangement short and simple. All cables are modular including the 24-pin and ATX 4+4. There are two PCI-E cables included which each have a pair of connectors on them. Peripherals are handled via five cables, three of which are for three SATA devices, one for two Molex devices, and one more for two Molex devices with a FDD connector at the end.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.



A Look Inside

Cooler Master uses plenty of passive cooling on the inside of the V700 and is identical to what we saw with the V1000.

Two Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors reside on the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side is filled with more Chemi-con caps.

Cooler Master uses the Protechnic MGA13512XR-O25 fan for the active cooling inside the V700.
