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.
