Not enough with CPU coolers and PC cases, Cooler Master has also brought along several new power supply units (PSUs) to CES 2018. Among them are two PSU families called the MasterWatt V, and the MasterWatt Maker.
MasterWatt V Series
The MasterWatt V Series of PSUs will essentially come in variants of 550W, 650W, and 750W. All of them will be fully modular and also come with an 80PLUS Gold ratings, so you’re pretty much guaranteed about 92% percent power efficiency from the PSU.
Additionally, Cooler Master has also increased the maximum operating temperatures of these PSUs to 50 degrees Celsius, allowing for longer sustainability in situations where heat is an issue for the PC it is powering (e.g. a cyber cafe, or a room with poor ventilation). Not to forget, these PSUs are also covered by a 10-year warranty.
Available in either 1,200W and 1,500W iterations, the MasterWatt Maker can be deemed as the latest flagship PSU series from Cooler Master. They are apparently the company’s most extreme and powerful PSUs to-date and come with 80PLUS Platinum rating, which means that they are able to deliver 94% power efficiency.
But what really make these PSUs stand out from the rest are the two features that Cooler Master has implemented with it: Cooler Master Connect v2.0, and Overlay.live.
In general, Overlay.live is a cloud-based monitoring software that essentially allows users to broadcast real-time data in livestreams. In both theory and practice, this extra data would give streamers and their respective viewers more accurate statistics of their system, especially if they happen to be overclocking enthusiasts.
In the case of Cooler Master Connect v.20, the feature gives the MasterWatt Maker PSUs a suite of new tools that can be used in line with Overlay.live. Cooler Master has also pushes things further by implementing Bluetooth connectivity into both MasterWatt Maker PSUs which allows users to sync their mobile devices to these PSUs in order to gain near real-time information via MasterPlus+ program.
Just like the rest of Cooler Master’s other products, the company has yet to announce local pricings and availability for these PSUs.
