It’s that time again where I give you my final thoughts on whether or not the product is worth buying or is any good. Have Cooler Master hit the jackpot with their latest VSM series power supplies or are there better alternatives out there on the market?
Well starting with the performance, the V750 is built by Enhance which isn’t the most well-known OEM on the market, but is definitely a good quality one and they seem to have done a good job with the VSM750. Fluctuation was down to a minimum even at full load which gives me the impression the full Japanese capacitor laden unit is more than up to the task at hand. We will have an ATE load tester one day and hope to bring you even more detailed power supply reviews but as far as the noise performance on the VSM750 goes, the Late Yoon fan isn’t the loudest on the market but at full load can be noticed a little; certainly not over a graphics card cooler though!
Design wise, Cooler Master have gone with a very petite ATX aesthetic which will certainly please those looking for a power supply which is most certainly going to fit inside the majority of cases in the market while remaining pretty stylish. The main highlight for me is the fan grill which contrasts well with the black while remaining very stylish; a lot more than most currently on the market.
The modular cables included with the VSM750 are of good quality and will certainly be robust enough to withstand multiple builds; I tend to find power supplies last the longest with any build (other than the case if looked after). The pre-attached cables have the usual plastic flexi braid which requires a bit more care as it can sometimes rip easily, especially if snagged on a sharp part of the case so be careful with that one.
On the subject of price, the Cooler Master V750 will set you back around £88 which in my estimation, represents amazing value considering the quality and semi-modular design. I feel you will be very hard pushed to find a semi-modular power supply with this power output which delivers in all 3 fields (performance/design/value). It is also slightly cheaper than the G series 750w Seasonic unit which I would go out on a limb by saying I doubt it’s much better, if any better at all. The 80 PLUS Gold rating also adds price to any unit but surprisingly not that much in Cooler Masters case.
Overall Cooler Master have a very potent offering for consumers in the way of the VSM750 and although it isn’t fully modular, isn’t the sought after “platinum” and isn’t over 9000w, it is a very solid offering. With very strong performance, epic value for money and the potential to run SLI/CF graphics solutions on a sub £100 power supply is always a plus point. Did I mention how awesome that fan grill is?
Big thanks to Cooler Master for sending the VSM 750 in for review and I look forward to seeing more in the future.
