Cooler Master PSU's

SgtKenzo
 Share

Hey guys, I am planning on building a living room PC and I know how much power my parts are going to use and they shouldn't exceed 400W even at max load, so I don't really need a beefy power supply.

 

Is the Cooler Master MWE White 500V2 worth a look?

£37.99 or $46.80 (approx.) so it's quite affordable but is it any good?

 

I've been doing a little research and i've had a Cooler Master B700 back in the day which served me well for 6 years and this MWE PSU delivers most of it's power on the 12v rail which is what's generally accepted as being decent?

that is not a indication that its decent. 

 

current stock of MWE white V2 units should be avoided. 

 

you can get the system power 9 instead

The MWE white models are horrible. Avoid them. Get a Corsair CX550 or SeaSonic S12III 500W

Eh, MWE V2 White not 'horrible', it has problems with low load ripple that's why it's low on the tier list, but for 40 pounds ? I'd say it worth it if used in relatively low-end PC.

Oh it's terrible, considering there are FAR better models for the same price

The DA550 is usually cheaper and much better

Group regulated CWT GPM is much better than this LLC+DC-DC with a bit high (85mV) low-load ripple ? That's news to me.
