Summary: The Cooler Master V850 is just the
power supply we have seen from Cooler Master and it is the first of its new V-Series that we have reviewed. Previously in our testing, Cooler Master power supplies have been split between good and not so good power supplies with the most recent examples being just outright bad, but that was years ago.
Summary: Cooler Master has been off our radar for a few years now as its power supplies were simply not up to snuff. Cooler Master's focus is back on enthusiast PSUs now with a lineup of new power supplies. The first one we are reviewing powers in at 850 watts, is a fully modular unit and it touts a host of high quality components and features.
Cooler Master V850 850W Modular Power Supply Review
3 October 2013
Summary: Final Thoughts
I’ve always been a fan of Cooler Master power supplies. It was Cooler Master’s Real Power Pro series that really made me go, “Wow!” when I first opened the box up. While Cooler Master has really expanded their product line since then one of their strongest products are still power supplies. With companies like Corsair and be quiet! emerging with quality power supplies many people may have forgot about Cooler Master, but the V-Series is here to change that.
Pros: Quality components, SOLID 12V rail, Under 1% voltage regulation on all of the rails, 100% modular, 5 year warranty, 80PLUS Gold certified
Excerpt: A little while ago, I looked at a new Coolermaster unit that marked a dramatic departure for the company. Known as the V1000, it showed all of us that Coolermaster was no longer content with their middle of the pack position in the marketplace. It was an amazing unit indeed, but can the company keep the momentum going? The brand new V850 is here today to help us answer that very question.
Summary: The Cooler Master V850 850W Power Supply is an outstanding product that comes with a quiet 135mm fan, is 100% modular and performs brilliantly. The peek output of the 3.3/5v rail is 125 watts and the 12v is 840W watts. Also, the +3.3V & the +5V rails are both 25A each and it has a strong single +12V rail which is 70A.
