Cooler Master comes armed to the mainstream PSU party with a quartet of supplies under the MasterWatt banner.
The 650W model uses an established HEC platform to provide 80 PLUS Bronze certification in a supply that also provides two things we look for at this price point: semi-modular cabling and a passive-fan mode - at up to 15 per cent, or 100W, in this instance.
In all other respects, Cooler Master has a solid PSU line-up that is ideal for mainstream PC builds that don't need the latest Platinum or Titanium supplies, and savings made here can obviously be repurposed elsewhere.
Backed by a five-year warranty and offering everything a budding PC builder will need for a mainstream machine, Cooler Master hits most of the right notes. Recommended.
