Cooler Master V1000- jonnyGURU Review

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ive been waiting for this review for some time now and here it is. JonnyGURU has given this unit a very good rating so those looking for a new PSU check out this review of the Cooler Master V1000

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=344

As always an in depth review by jonnyGURU along with the usual humor applaud.gif




I was lucky enough to get picked for a beta sample of this same unit. I liked it so much ive not bothered to reinstall the SS 1000w P.

Here is a few things that I really like about this unit. The visual image of the unit is very nice, like really nice, this is one sexy powersupply. Ruff dull black finnish with a coppery looking "V1000" down the side. Its fully modular with ribbon cables, all black right to the connectors (I don't like ribbon cables myself but they are worlds ahead of the ugly SeaSonic rainbow colored cables-sorry SS but its true, you cables are nasty ugly) and its smaller than my SS unit - Silent fan and unit makes no noise (for those wondering if it buzzes or makes that whining sound which seems to be common lately with powersupplys)

The Bad
I didn't like the feel of the ribbon cables, ribbon cables are not my thing. Also the V1000's cable plug ins when fully utilized creates a lot of wire running along the bottom of the case, like carpet. I would have liked less cables but more tie ins for hardware per cable. Its also difficult to plug in the cables if your blind and going by feel alone.

Now im basing this on the sample i was given- consumer version may not be exactly the same. I do know it was said that our units were earlier versions and the consumer versions would be much better units.

JonnyGURU posted great pics in his review already but Ill post a few of my own here too (sorry jonny, not trying to steal any of your thunder-I just like taking pics of products and showing them off)

Interesting... I've been looking at this PSU for a little while, and for the price it's really hard to beat.
You mention that the fan is silent... as in inaudible?
Because I'm looking to build my current hardware into a Fractal XL R2 case and I'm aiming for a VERY silent PC, preferably one that's inaudible when idle.
I don't mind a little noise when gaming or other load, just not when sitting on the desktop surfing or listening to music.
The last thing I need is something like the Corsair AX860i with its clicking fan sound every 10 seconds and its coil whine crap.
So in short: is it silent for a bedroom-pc yes/no? smile.gif

27mv max ripple on the 12v rail daaaaaaaaamm thats very good

The Golden King rebrands got 25-30mv max and the Super Flower Leadex is 15mv max

The Seasonic Platinum 1000 watts is 50mv max compare so that one is nowhere near both the Cooler Master V and the Leadex

The Fractal Design Newton R3 might also be for you on that one the fan does not turn on untill 50% load

I would say yes to inaudible when idle. Testing the unit outside the case (9w draw) putting my ear to the PSU fan I could not hear the fan. When I had the unit outside the case and just the bear essentials plugged in I could put 20% (kill-o-watt reader) on the unit and I could not hear the fan in the psu. At 50% load and my ear to the psu i could not tell, i had a few things plugged in to help create some load, i could not hear the psu fan over all that other stuff.


Agreed, hybrid mode is very nice, too bad this unit does not have that option

The 1st PSU from CM with excellent performance
post #6 of 7
shilka I've seen the Fractal Design Newton R3 PSU, and although it's a very good PSU, I really want one that's fully modular this time.
On top of that, the Fractal seems to be €40 more expensive than the Cooler Master.
Hybrid mode is good but if I cannot hear the fan in idle (THANKS a lot for testing this again cravingmild thumb.gif ) then I don't really need it wink.gif

What about the NZXT HALE 90 V2 just to name another
