Summary: When my earlier PSU (RSA00-80GAD3-US) died after 4.5 years. I submitted RMA and thought of buying this (RSA00-AFBAG1-US) for another desktop that I was building. But after going through the RMA experience, I doubt if I will buy any CoolerMaster product EVER!!
Pros: Good while it worked.
Cons: Died after 4.5 years. Poor customer service and RMA handling.
DO NOT BUY - Cooler Master is NOT honoring warranties anymore
4 January 2016
Summary: I have sent this power supply for RMA more than 2 and a half months ago and have yet to receive another power supply. The forum is FILED with similar complaints of people not receiving their power supply even after 3-4 months; but you don't have to believe me, just take a look for yourself!
Pros: All-black cables I guess? Silent, but I have heard of other people experiencing coil whine.
Cons: Died after less than a year of light usage. Would shut down my computer when powering two GTX 970s in SLI.
Summary: Support from the manufacturer is very important to me and should be to everyone working with technology. Even though I have been a Cooler Master fan for many years(cases and cooling devices), this will most likely be my last purchase from them. Very disappointed.
Pros: Has been solid for 2 years powering a dual GPU, overclocked i5-2500K@ 4.6GHz PC. Nice fully modular cables. Very efficient for a Gold rated PSU; Jonnyguru actually tested this power supply as having Platinum level efficiency. Quiet Fan and nice looks.
Cons: About 8 weeks ago I started having random power issues until the V1000 finally quit working. Fortunately I have another 1000 watt PSU, so it didn't cause me too much heartache (had to rewire my case). The real issue has been RMA support with Cooler Master. They received my PSU FIVE weeks ago and ...
Summary: For a company wants to sell it's products to people, I would think they would be more supportive and try to quickly get their poduct back to the customer.
Pros: DOA: Did not work right out os the box. I had already sent my UPC in for the rebate and had to return it to Cooler Master at a cost of $23.23 shipping. Shipped on Apr. 4, they recieved it on Apr. 14. I called on Apr. 14 and was told it would take a week before they would ship a new one. Had to us...
Summary: Since it was outside the 30 day Newegg RMA window had to RMA to Cooler Master in California. Sent it to them, they received it 24 Feb, did not post receipt till 5 march (after I sent an email about it) and that is it, no notice if they will ship a new one, the original or that they are even working...
Pros: Looks good, well labeled, cables are long, is quiet
Cons: Failed after two weeks of use. Poor Cooler Master RMA process, poor customer service.
Pros: If it works your lucky, mine died in less than a year with barely any usage at all. Was traveling most of the time, all of a sudden when I was playing tombraider it just made an extremely loud grinding noise and basically blew up. I realised that the psu is the most important part in your system ...
Cons: Extremely unreliable, showed signs of failure only few months after purchase.
Summary: Great PSU overall, with plenty of power for multiple addons.
Pros: The V1000 has great power, lots of connections/cables and is very silent. Lots of amps on the 12V rail. I love the full modularity.
Cons: I wish the cables were round for a nicer look inside cases with a clear panel and for easier cable management. Theses cables are flat, so you have to take more precaution for clean routing without creating twists and buldges.
