COOLER MASTER V550 GOLD POWER SUPPLY Overview
COOLER MASTER V550 GOLD POWER SUPPLY
SFX FORM FACTOR
The V SFX Gold delivers the high-quality performance you’ve come to expect from the V series in a mini-ITX compatible form factor. As demands for smaller systems have risen, people have struggled to find power supply units from brands and series they trust in the SFX category. Though it didn’t come as soon as we originally planned, Cooler Master is glad to finally be able to provide a reliable, high-quality PSU that’s compatible with smaller cases and their accompanying components. A reduction in size should never mean a reduction in quality and with the V SFX Gold.
Though the V SFX Gold was made for mini-ITX builds, it can actually be used for any ATX case as well. With the included SFX-to-ATX bracket, you can instantly convert this unit from an SFX to an ATX PSU. That makes this product Cooler Master’s first power supply unit that can be used to power systems ranging from as small as mini-ITX all the way up to E-ATX motherboards. Cooler Master’s motto is “Make It Yours” and with the V SFX Gold’s almost universal case compatibility, you can use this PSU to build just about any system you’d like.
80 PLUS GOLD EFFICIENCY
The efficiency of your power supply unit is important because it directly affects your system’s performance and your power bill. The efficiency rating does not reflect the quality or reliability of a PSU. It only reflects the unit’s ability to move power from the wall to your components. The higher a PSU’s efficiency is, the lower the total amount of power it needs to power your system. The V SFX Gold series has an 80 PLUS Gold efficiency rating, meaning it has a guaranteed typical efficiency of 90%.
