    Default Cooler Master V Series 750 W Gold Review @ TechPowerUP

    https://www.techpowerup.com/review/c...es-750-w-gold/

    The new Cooler Master V Gold series consists of four members with capacities ranging from 550 W to 850 W. All of these use a platform by Chicony. The previous V series units were made by Seasonic (V1200, V1000 and V850) and Enhance Electronics (V750, V650 and V550). On CM's site, we still find many of the older V series units on offer, which will probably confuse future buyers. CM most likely has stock of these older models, and until sold out, CM will continue listing them alongside their new models.

    The Cooler Master V750 Gold sports excellent transient response at +12V, which is what matters the most with real-life applications. However, it costs more than its competitors, and availability in the US market is restricted due to Trump's recent tariffs on all products made in China.
    Aris, the power distribution table on the first page is titled "Super Flower SF-650P14PE Power Specs" 👽

    The V750 retails for $139.99 from Cooler Master's online shop

    High price (because of tariffs) and limited availability in the US

    The main problem with the V750 is its restricted availability in the US due to Trump's tariffs, along with its high price, neither of which is specific to this product since more and more brands are forced to increase the prices of their products in the US, and there are cases where products have been removed from the US market entirely until production has moved out of China.
    Looks like US has just granted a reprieve on tariffs for a bunch of items, including ATX power supplies exceeding 500W. Currently the exemption is valid for less than 1 year starting from 24th September 2019 ending 7th August 2020, but who knows what will change by end of 2020.

    Obviously Cooler Master would have set the price long before this exemption came through, but without the 25% tariff applied it should be around $110. I wonder if we will end up seeing it go on special or have mail-in-rebates in the next few months. Can't really blame CM for the tariffs and the uncertainty around them, but if they can get the price down it might be an interesting option.

    It doesn't say that.

    Power supplies suitable for physical incorporation into automatic dataprocessing (ADP) machines or units thereof of heading 8471, each with apower output exceeding 500 W, measuring 148mm in length, 43 mm in widthand 335 mm in height (described in statistical reporting number8504.40.6018)
    This is what is says, that clearly doesn't have anything to do with an ATX power supply or any other consumer power supply for that matter.

    Ah, you're right! I should check my facts & sources better.
    The articles I read earlier described it as "desktop PSUs over 500W".

    Guess we'll be stuck with shitty PSU prices for a little while longer then.

    The new Cooler Master V750 is listed for pre-order on an Australian retailer for AUD$159 (USD$107) including 10% sales tax. Without the sales tax included it's AUD$145 (USD$98). USD$40 increase just for the tariff.

    To put the price in perspective it's the same price as the Corsair TX750M and AUD$25 cheaper than the RM750x which is currently AUD$185. That price bracket makes the new V750 a lot more interesting [for non Americans].

    Yeah. A bunch of sites reported this as "news" without actually reading the exemption papers.

    Your in Australia, your prices don't have anything to do with Trumps tariffs, except if you import the PSU from the USA.

    wich is to be expected of a Chiconey PSU or other "Top Tier" Manufacturers.
    Its made to be cheap and not die within the spec...

    Sadly It doesn't look like its an upgrade over the older V-Gold made by Enhance. Especially the 550W ones seem like a Downgrade with only two 8pin Connectors...
    And also the 135mm fan wich also rotates higher than the old V-Series.
    Well, 135mm is not a good idea in many PSU and it looks like this PSU might also be more designed towards 120mm fans...
