Back in May, Cooler Master launched their new line of flagship power supplies. We covered the launch of the V1000, which we found to be a perfect mix of performance, features and price to make it one of the best all around units that we have seen in a long time.
We understand that quite a few will find that a 1000W power supply is just frankly a bit much for their computing needs, so we felt that it was important to take a step down from the V1000 and see what else the V series had to offer.
Today we are looking at the V850. As the power supply is from the same series, there isn't much that differs. The V850 still sports a single 12V rail, along with full modular cabling. It is also still rated for 80 PLUS Gold efficiency and all of the protections are the same just as you would expect.
What has changed is the output of the unit and some of the connectors available on the unit. As you're probably curious as to just what has changed with the output of the unit, let's just get right into the specifications and start taking a look at the V850.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As you can see from above, the only thing that has changed as far as outputs are concerned when comparing the V850 to the V1000 is that there is less power available on the 12V rail. The 12V rail is rated for 70A or a total of 840W. 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 total. Maximum combined output for the V850 is 850W.
Nothing changes between the V850 and V1000 when looking at the features. The V850 features SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP. The power supply is rated for 80 PLUS Gold efficiency. It features full modular cabling, all of which is fully sleeved or of the flat ribbon variety. Cooler Master does not rate the V850 for 100% continuous output at 50C, but rather it does so at a more modest 40C.
Cooler Master has an MSRP of $189.99 on the V850. Currently Newegg has the V850 on sale for $159.99. This makes the V850 a much more attractive offering and also makes it a bit more comparatively priced with the current competition. Cooler Master backs the V850 with a five year warranty.
