    It's about time Cooler Master stepped up their game.

    yes they are prepping something which they were kind enough to show me. I couldn't shoot any photos though of the internals. I can only say that it was a pretty interesting concept and I am looking forward to testing it..

    Are you allowed to tell us anything about this 'interesting concept'?

    I prepped a newspost at Tom's about it. It should be up on Monday though, since they have to prepare the video as well.

    in a snap: PCB with lots of clearance and very few electrolytic caps on the secondary side. I mean really few in the point that it makes me wonder about the PSU's performance in transient load scenarios. I guess I will soon find out about this

    The electrolytic secondary capacitors are the Achilles' heel of PC power supplies; I guess if one has fast enough feedback one does not need a lot of capacitance to keep the voltage smooth.

    I am one of those people who likes brains over brawn.

    You can find a lot about multiphase power supplies on Google.
