    Question new v4 of elite series , any info?

    coolermaster released a new elite psu (well atleast i think they just did , in the page's source code it says release date 01/07/2020 so i guess ye its relativley new 3 months coolermaster psu link : https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog...e-v4-230v-600w , source code screenshot where it says release date : https://imgur.com/a/tund6wX) , this is the first in the elite series to be 80 plus and it also caries the mpe sku the same sku used in the new mwe series ( mwe v2) , and all mpe psus are llc and dc-dc , EVEN THE WHITE ONES!! , like the mwe v2 white 600w is llc and dc-dc , yes its not full range but hey its hell of deal for that thing , on coolermater's website they braged about the mwe v2 white and how it was dc-dc but they dont seem to have done the same to the elite v4 , so im wondering since it caries the mpe name maybe it is ? , any thoughts or sources u guys can find ? like this is relativley new so i doubt ill find anything so thats why went to JG forums :/ , maybe its just another df / gr meme? need u guys help

    Still a low quality double forward with group regulation you wanna avoid. It's visible in the last picture. https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/c...ery-9-zoom.png

    well yes i do trust ur opinion , but personally i still cant tell if a psu is dc-dc or not quite , let alone one that's barely visible like so , but as far as i know there's supposed to be a daughter board with 2 coils? correct??? well the mwe white v2 ( which cooler master said was llc and dc-dc) doesnt look like it has one , am i looking in the wrong place or for the wrong thing ? https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/c...eftorright.png , also the image u linked i thiiiink there is some green pcb horizontaly indicating a daughter board? https://imgur.com/a/UAbTVR6 ? idk

    The secondary side of the PSU is always connected and therefore close to the cables. On the Elite V4 you see one big coil and a smaller one pointing towards group regulation. The MWE White V2 has DC-DC as you can see on the two small coils with some yellow tape on them, on the small green PCB next to the cables.
