You guys might know that we are pretty damn fond of our enthusiast level computer power supplies around here. But when I first read this, I was sure that I was getting it wrong, mainly because it was not in English...and I only read English. Well that and a good bit of Spanish being from Texas. Looking around I did find a news item over at TechPowerUp that was in English that coveres the new CoolerMaster MasterWatt Maker 1200.
At CES 2017, Cooler Master unveiled a limited edition of their MasterWatt line of power supply units: the MasterWatt Author ME 1200 W. As the name implies, this is a 1200 W power supply, rated at 80 Plus Titanium efficiency levels (which means >94% energy efficiency), though Cooler Master claims this PSU is able to achieve >95% efficiency levels. Built exclusively with Murata components, Cooler Master are presenting this one as the best power supply they've ever made, and they're therefore pitting it as a special, limited edition PSU, of which only a few thousand samples will be produced and sold: at an over $1000 price-tag.
WOW! 1000 US Dollars! A little bit more Googling turned up a video.
So given that this week, we turned up a SilverStone Strider 1000W PSU that showed to be an excellent value at less than $173 after $15MIR and Prime Shipping, we really, really, really, want to review the CoolerMaster MasterWatt Maker 1200. What you say CoolerMaster? You got the conjones to send us one? (Told you I knew some Spanish.)
