With Computex Taipei 2013 less than a month away, tech companies are scrambling for a number of reasons. Some are using this week as launch to bring forth many products seen at CES, while others are putting finishing touches on things that will be seen at the event. The unit that we have on our bench today is one of the former and it is meant to bring Cooler Master back to the top of the power supply market.
The new V-series power supplies are meant to be their flagship units and were designed in conjunction with Seasonic. Cooler Master offers the new V series power supplies in three wattages: 700W, 850W and 1000W. These three models will take care of most enthusiasts, but those needing a bit more power will have to look towards their other models. All V series power supplies are rated for 80 PLUS Gold efficiency and feature a five year warranty.
So far things sound good, so let's take a deeper look at some of the specs, and find out what the new V1000 can do.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
I/O specifications are quite typical for a 1000W power supply with nothing out of the ordinary. The V1000 utilizes a single 12V rail rated for 83A or 996W. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for 25A each with a maximum combined output of 125W. The 5VSB rail is rated for 3A or 15W. Maximum combined output for the Cooler Master V1000 is 1000W.
All the protections that we look for are present including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP. The V1000 is a fully modular power supply and features flat ribbon cables with the exception of the 24-pin Main and it is sleeved in nylon mesh. Cooler Master's V1000 is rated for 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, but is not certified for 100% continuous output at 50C. Instead, the V1000 is rated for 100% continuous output at 40C. This isn't because the unit cannot handle the temperatures, but because this is what Cooler Master certifies all of their units for.
Cooler Master has placed an MSRP of $209.99 on the V1000 power supply. As we've written this review prior to launch, we can't provide a link to the unit for sale or find a better deal. Cooler Master has said the unit will be available in the US and Canada at the very least and if you live outside these regions, you'll have to order from one of the two at launch. Cooler Master backs the V1000 with a five year warranty.
