Cooler Master Announces VS Series Power Supplies: Efficient & Powerful 80 PLUS Gold PSUs

Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components and more, today released the highly efficient and powerful VS Series Power Supplies (PSU).

High Efficiency Design

Developed to improve efficiency and increase heat dissipation, VS Series PSUs are manufactured with a unique 3D circuit design. This special design minimizes unnecessary cabling which results in lower crosstalk and signal noise. Less cables means more open space to provide improved airflow to core components. A single, powerful rail platform channels the power of VS Series PSUs for superior load balancing and better compatibility with graphics cards. High-grade Japanese capacitors help mitigate the affect of power fluctuations while extending overall PSU system life and creating excellent holdup times. A custom DC-DC module further increases operational efficiency and voltage stability. A firm 80 PLUS Gold certification is the net result of these many improvements.

CM VS

For added ease of use and ability to manage cables, VS PSUs include a semi modular flat ribbon cable system. Only the most basic system cables are directly attached, leaving it up to the user to decide what will be necessary for their build. Those that enjoy easy cable management will appreciate the included flat ribbon cables that give users the ability to compress and arrange their cables in clean and compact ways not possible with traditional and individually sleeved cabling – saving time and enabling builds with the best possible airflow.

The VS Series will be available from the middle of October in 450W, 550W and 650W models.

Gigabyte Announces GeForce GTX TITAN OC With WindForce 3X 450W Cooler

Back in April this year, GIGABYTE unveiled the WindForce 3X 450W cooler which was to be used on the GeForce GTX Titan. The cooler is a dual-slot design and features three fans (known as Triangle Cool Technology) which cool two aluminum fin-stack heatsinks which are fed by no less than six copper heatpipes. Unfortunately, NVIDIA’s restrictive policy which prevented AIB partners from modifying air coolers on the cards was never lifted, but the guys at GIGABYTE have found a way to bypass the restriction.
