Cooler Master V Platinum V2 1600 PSU Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we take a look at one of the latest power supplies from Cooler Master – the V Platinum V2, in 1600W capacity. This new range was announced by Cooler Master back in January 2024 and incorporates a fully modular design, a ‘cutting edge Mobius fan' and 80 Plus Platinum efficiency. It is reassuring to see that Cooler Master back these units with a full 12 year warranty.

Based on the literature that Cooler Master sent me, they seem very proud of these new power supplies. The company seems to have ticked a lot of boxes, incorporating a quiet fan (with a silent mode), Japanese capacitors, fully modular cabling and, as mentioned previously, a 12 year warranty. Cooler Master are keen to point out that this 1600 Watt version is shipped with two 12V-2×6 (12+4pin) connectors supporting up to 600W each, allowing for a dual 4090 GPU set up. This reminds me of how much I miss SLI.

The first sample of this power supply we were sent from Cooler Master was recalled as I started testing as they said it could be faulty, and a second sample was shipped to arrive several weeks later.
