Cooler Master MWE Gold V2 1050W and MWE Gold V2 1250W White Edition PSU Review
Introduction and Specifications
Cooler Master revamps their MWE Gold series with enhanced V2 models
Today we will be looking at two new power supplies from Cooler Master. These new power supplies are their MWE Gold V2 1050W and MWE Gold V2 1250W White Edition, both of which are ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0 compatible. These units are also 80+ Gold rated and are designed to be used safely at ambient thermals of up to 50 degrees Celcius. That’s great news for overclockers, or anyone who uses their PCs in particularly hot environments.
Fan Profiles and Noise Levels
With their new MWE Gold V2 series of power supplies, Cooler Master are targeting low noise levels and high levels of thermal resilience. With their 1050W model, Cooler Master has stated that they can test their PSU with an ambient temperature of 50 degrees Celsius safely. That’s a lot of thermal headroom given how much cooler most rooms are.
A side benefit of this high level of thermal resilience is that this power supply’s cooling solution does not need its fans to run at high speeds when used at normal ambient temperatures. At full load with 25-degree ambient temperatures Cooler Master’s MWE Gold V2 series will not deliver noise levels of over 25 dBA. That’s practically silent. During our testing, both the 1050W and 1250W models that we tested did not make any noticeable noise.
MWE Gold V2 1050 series is able to push its temperature resilience to 50 degree Celsius safely. Such a high threshold greatly improves what’s possible to accomplish with the unit and your system in general. Overclocking and other high intensity applications become way more accessible when the system’s power supply unit can take the heat.
Out of the box both the MWE Gold V2 1050W and MWE Gold V2 1250W White Edition ships with a 650mm long ATX 24-pin power cable, a 650mm long EPS 4+4 cable, a 650mm long EPS 8-pin cable, three 4x SATA cables, a 4x Molex cable, three 2x PCIe 6+2-pin cables, and a single 650mm long 12VHPWR cable. Since this PSUâs 12VHPWR cable 12VHPWR on both ends, it can be easily replaced with custom CableMod cables if required.
