Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold Power Supply Review: The Sweet Spot Of SFX PSUs?

Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold Review

Building a Mini-ITX system is not an easy task. Not only do you have to deal with cable management woes in a smaller footprint, Mini-ITX components are much more expensive than the ATX counterparts.

This is where the Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold comes into play. Featuring a fully modular design in an SFX form factor, the Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold promises high quality components, efficiency, and (relatively speaking) affordability.

Design

Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold Power Supply Review: The Sweet Spot Of SFX PSUs? 7

The V750 SFX Gold has more than enough connectivity options for Mini-ITX builds. You get four 8-pin PCIE connectors and three 5-pin SATA connectors. By using the included ATX bracket, you can install the power supply into larger cases. While it seems a bit extra to spend more money on an SFX power supply where ATX equivalents can be had for less, at least you have the option there just in case you decide to switch from Mini-ITX to mATX or larger down the line.

It is also fully modular, which is perfect for Mini-ITX rigs that does not have much room for cable management. The included cable ties also help to make the build look neat.

Performance

When it comes to power, the V750 SFX Gold delivers true 750W on the 12V rail. With a total power of 750W, it can power most mid to middle-high end systems with ease. You can also opt for SKUs with wattage ranging from 550W to 850W according to your own needs.

It has an 80Plus Gold efficiency rating, of which Cooler Master claims to have a typical load efficiency of 90%. This could help you save more on your electricity bill, especially considering the MTBF is more than 100,000 hours. To sweeten the deal, Cooler Master provides a 10 year warranty for the power supply.

The amount of connectors is a bit overkill to me, considering Mini-ITX rigs rarely use SATA ports nowadays thanks to fast NVME storage. However, there is the option right there if you ever need it.

Cables

The included cables are of the flat type. The length have been shortened to fit into Mini ITX cases, and in the Cooler Master NR200P’s case (no pun intended), the length is just right. Though, I would have preferred them to be more malleable for ease of tying then down.

Fan & Fan Noise

Cooling the power supply is a 92mm FDB fan, which is barely audible once everything is installed in the case.

Final Thoughts

Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold Power Supply Review: The Sweet Spot Of SFX PSUs? 10

The Cooler Master V750 SFX Gold ticks the right boxes for a SFX power supply unit. It is relatively affordable while not skimping on the essentials.

While there are better power supplies out there with more features such as 80Plus Platinum rating, oftentimes you are getting marginal performance gain for a lot more money. Hence this is why I think the V750 SFX Gold is the sweet-spot option for SFX power supplies.
