Cooler Master to Release New PSU SeriesCategory: Power Supplies
Posted: July 11, 2013 04:51AM
Cooler Master has announced a new series of PSUs, called the G-series. The series will consist of a 500 W, a 600 W, and a 700 W PSU that will all have active PFC (Power Factor Correction) and 80 Plus Bronze certification.
The G-series will be aimed primarily at the mainstream market; however, that did not stop Cooler Master from loading the PSUs with various protections, such as Voltage-Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Current-Protection, and Temperature-Protection. The G-series will also be able to power Intel's new Haswell Processors, since the G700 model's 12 V rail design will be able to deliver up to 55 A.
The PSUs will be cooled by a single 120 mm fan with intelligent speed control, which will be placed in the bottom. The fan will operate in silent mode until the PSU hits 70 percent load, where the fan will then speed up to keep the temperature in check. The G700 model will feature nine SATA connectors, 3 standard molex connectors along with multi GPU support. The G600 and the G500 will have six SATA connectors, 3 standard molex connectors, and no support for multi GPU.
All of the PSUs will be packaged in "go green" packaging that is made from recycled paper to help reduce CO2 emission. The PSUs are expected to go on sale next month with prices set around €59,95 for the G500, €69,95 for the G600, and €79,95 for the G700.
