Cooler Master V750 Semi-Modular
Watt a PSU!
In the ever-changing PC landscape, one thing remains constant – there will always be demand for efficient, high-performance PSUs. With that in mind, Cooler Master took to the task of creating a PSU range that would meet the needs of DIY enthusiasts. What the company came up with was the V-series PSUs.
The Cooler Master V750 is part of this lineup, which was first unveiled in COMPUTEX 2013 earlier this year. What sets the V750 and its brethren apart from the competition is that they are highly affordable PSUs that are not only highly efficient, but have modular features as well. The V750 has a semi-modular design, which means that the 20+4 motherboard connector and a number of other basic cables are permanently connected to the PSU. Additional cables, such as the SATA cables, can be connected accordingly if you need to power up additional peripherals.
Another feature that Cooler Master is proud of is the fact that this series of PSUs makes use of a ‘3D circuit’. This essentially means that the PCB on this PSU isn’t laid out flat. This increases the surface area, allowing for better heat dissipation, reduced crosstalk, and less signal noise.
When it comes to circuit protection, this PSU has an entire suite of protection, so rest assured that your precious PC will be safe in the event of a power surge. This suite includes Over Voltage Protection; Under Voltage Protection; Over Current Protection; Over Power Protection; Over Temperature Protection; and Short Circuit Protection.
Testing this PSU involved us connecting the PSU to our system and a Power Meter. We took three readings from the Power Meter to get a better idea of the efficiency of this PSU. Our first reading was taken when the system was shut down, to find out if there was any phantom draw. We found that the system was drawing an average of 3.0W, which is an average amount of consumption.
We then booted up our system and left it on idle for about 10 minutes before taking a reading. On idle, the draw was averaging around 87.6W, which is slightly lower when compared to other PSUs on the market, which tend to average about 90W on idle. Our final test saw us running 3DMark’s Fire Strike Extreme, where the system’s draw was 335W on average. These numbers show that this PSU is rather efficient, providing more power only when the system demands for it. It’s also worth noting that the 120mm fan remained very silent, even when we placed the system under load.
At the end of the day, the Cooler Master V750 is a solid choice for anyone looking to assemble a gaming rig. There’s enough juice for a high-end graphics card as well as a RAID configuration, without worrying about insufficient power. The semi-modular design helps in cable management, giving you the freedom to use only the connectors you need. Needless to say, this PSU is recommended for anyone on a tight budget for a mid-range PC.
