The V SFX Gold is Cooler Master's debut entry into SFX power supply units. After much demand, we have finally produced a PSU specifically made to meet the needs of mini-ITX system builders. This unit delivers top-shelf performance in 550, 650, 750, and 850 watt levels. It offers an 80 PLUS Gold efficiency rating, full-modular cabling, a 92mm FDB fan, 16AWG PCIe high efficiency cables, 100% Japanese capacitors, and a 10 year warranty. And with the included SFX-to-ATX bracket, this unit is compatible with cases ranging from mini-ITX all the way up to E-ATX systems.
SFX FORM FACTOR
The V SFX Gold delivers the high quality performance you've come to expect from the V series in a mini-ITX compatible form factor. As demands for smaller systems have risen, people have struggled to find power supply units from brands and series they trust in the SFX category. Though it didn't come as soon as we originally planned, Cooler Master is glad to finally be able to provide a reliable, high quality PSU that's compatible with smaller cases and their accompanying components. A reduction in size should never mean a reduction in quality and with the V SFX Gold, it doesn't. Make it mini. Make It Yours.
80 PLUS GOLD EFFICIENCY
The efficiency of your power supply unit is important because it directly affects your system's performance and your power bill. The efficiency rating does not reflect the quality or reliability of a PSU. It only reflects the unit's ability to move power from the wall to your components. The higher a PSU's efficiency is, the lower the total amount of power it needs to power your system. The V SFX Gold series has an 80 PLUS Gold efficiency rating, meaning it has a guaranteed typical efficiency of 90%.
Though the V SFX Gold was made for mini-ITX builds, it can actually be used for any ATX case as well. With the included SFX-to-ATX bracket, you can instantly convert this unit from an SFX to an ATX PSU. That makes this product Cooler Master's first power supply unit that can be used to power systems ranging from as small as mini-ITX all the way up to E-ATX motherboards. Cooler Master's motto is "Make It Yours" and with the V SFX Gold's almost universal case compatibility, you can use this PSU to build just about any system you'd like.
Two of the main benefits of a mini-ITX build are the reduced size requirements and reduced noise. The main cause of noise in a PSU is usually the fan. The V SFX Gold uses a 92mm FDB fan so it's extremely quiet. With its small size, high efficiency, and excellent heat dissipation, the overall noise is kept to an absolute minimum.
A mini-ITX case means minimal space for everything. Not only does that mean a reduction in room for the power supply unit, but also for the accompanying cables. That's why the V SFX Gold offers full-modular cabling. Use the absolute bare minimum in space for cable management by using the absolute bare minimum in cables. Connect only the ones you need for your system to preserve as much room as possible, leading to both improved airflow and better presentation.
