  • Cooler Master V SFX Platinum 1100 Modular Power Supply Review



    Something that most people forget is that the PC Power Supply is the most important component of any computer build.  It might sound strange but, without a PSU your system will not run, if the unit is underpowered, you will have issues keeping your system running, if the PSU is of “low quality” it can actually damage or destroy your build.  In fact, the PSU, or Power Supply Unit is the only component that can also survive multiple system upgrades without issue, provided you buy a good one.

    Another important thing about PSUs is that while good ones can last for years there are some very good reasons as to why they should be upgraded.  In this review we will be looking at the V SFX Platinum 1100 from Cooler Master.  Despite the strange product name this is a 80 Plus Platinum rated 1100w modular SFX PSU designed to support ATX 3.0 power demands and features the new 12vhpwr PCI Express 5.0 power connector.
