Cooler Master V Series 1000W PSU Review


ACC_1258_DxO
The Cooler Master V1000 is a very attractive looking power supply, finished in a black and grey livery. The name of the unit is displayed proudly on the sides, as shown in the image above.

The unit passed our ‘screwdriver’ stress test, which involves running a Philip’s head driver down the side of the chassis with weak to modest pressure. How often have you accidentally hit a power supply with some tools during a system build phase?

The paintwork didn’t scratch or mark at all. Bonus points.

A large black fan takes centerstage behind the ‘Cooler Master’ company logo. We will look at this more closely when we open the unit later in the review.

One side of the chassis is vented to ensure good airflow under load. There is a power connector and switch underneath the company logo at the side.
ACC_1262_DxO
The other side of the power supply is home to the modular connectors, which are clearly labelled. The peripheral connectors are all mounted vertically underneath the PCI-E and CPU connectors.

It has been roughly a full calendar year since I first picked up an Xbox Series X and with PC upgrades hitting all-time high prices, I've spent most of 2021 as a console gamer, primarily playing on Xbox. With Year-One down, it is time to take a look back at the first year of 'next-gen' and whether or not it was worth upgrading right from the jump.
