    Arrow Coolermaster Masterwatt Lite 600W 230V Review

    We haven't looked at a Cooler Master unit in a good while, so how about we look at one of their cheapest units now? The Masterwatt Lite unit in my hands today happens to be a 230V only model tailored for the budget conscious European consumer. Let's see if it's worth the little money being asked for it.

    Well, its cheap. You can only go so far with being cheap. Though there are better options for the Price. be quiet System Power 9 and U9 for example. The B9 is even cheaper, the normal one about 5€ more.
    And there is Xilence...
    That is DC-DC, though cheaper Caps made by XHY - 47,15 for the Performance A+, the MW Lite is 47,90€...


    BUT:
    I disagree with the Bridge Rectifier. We are talking about 230VAC, with 600W that's just a bit over 2,6A...
    That's Input, on the Output we are talking about ~325V pulsating DC - wich is only 1,85A...

    PS: 115VAC is cancer :P

    Unfortunately every PC basically causes crossload nowadays.

    Exactly and because of that shouldn't this also affect the functionality score? If the performance is so crappy that it effects the functionality it seems only logical to me that it will also affect the functionality score.

    They actually send their low-end products for review? I’m amazed.
    That’s a good thing of course.

    Let's average the crossloads into the voltage regulation scores.
    Finally.

    The review says the sample was provided by N/A so I would imagine they bought this unit.

    Coolermaster should be absolutely ashamed that they put their name to this terrible unit.

    Wolfy, I really feel that in cases like this - where a unit is so bad you cannot, in good conscience, recommend its purchase - you should forgo scoring it, and simply slap a big fat "FAILED" on the last page as a warning to readers to avoid at all costs.
