Cooler Master V550 Fully Modulated 80+ Gold PSU

CoolerMaster V550 Fully Modulated 80+ Gold PSU

The Cooler Master V550 80+ Gold fully Modulated PSU is aimed at consumers who want a PSU that has all the technological advances and efficiency of the larger modals, without the need for all the power. The V550 has been updated from the VSM550 and comes with all the tech and features of the big boys including CoolerMaster’s exclusive 3D circuit design, 100% Japanese capacitors, Silencio FP fan, fully modulated flat ribbon cables, compact size and last but certainly not least the 80+ gold efficiency rating. One of the V series biggest accomplishments has been to pack high quality power into a compact form factor. With the current craze of micro PC’s ever growing, builders will enjoy the V550’s 5.5″ length which should fit into just about anything. Inside the V550 has been redesigned like the other members of the V series. We have seen these design changes produce positive results on other modals and are inclined to believe the V550 will follow in those footsteps and come through testing with flying colors.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.
