Have you ever heard the saying “Go Big or Go Home”? Ya..I know a bunch, right! As you may have noticed Small Form Factor (SFF) builds have been gaining more and more traction, even with enthusiasts. Cooler Master has taken notice and developed a line of SFX power supplies, that range from 550W to 850W. Today we are going to be showing you the Cooler Master V650 SFX Gold. So if you are unfamiliar with SFX power supplies then I will quickly fill you in. Obviously they are going to be a lot smaller and have shorter cables than what you are used too. They are intended to be used with all those mini builds and fit into those SFF designed cases. These power supplies have power specifications very similar to regular ATX power supplies. Which is kind of crazy that they can pack that much power in such a a small package. If you really wanted to you could use one of these with any system if you wanted no matter the size of your case (if you don’t modding). These SFX power supplies do cost a little more that your typical ATX power supplies. One thing you will find when you start looking for a good SFX power supply; the market really isn’t that crowded. Your available options are somewhat limited. So, a big thank you goes out to Cooler Master for giving us another option to choose from.
The V SFX Gold is Cooler Master’s debut entry into SFX power supply units. After much demand, we have finally produced a PSU specifically made to meet the needs of mini-ITX system builders. This unit delivers top-shelf performance in 550, 650, 750, and 850 watt levels. It offers an 80 PLUS Gold efficiency rating, full-modular cabling, a 92mm FDB fan, 16AWG PCIe high efficiency cables, 100% Japanese capacitors, and a 10 year warranty. And with the included SFX-to-ATX bracket, this unit is compatible with cases ranging from mini-ITX all the way up to E-ATX systems.
I would like to thank Cooler Master for providing this review sample! Let us see what Cooler Master has to say about themselves on their website:
