Cooler Master launched V1100/V1300 SFX Platinum power supply

Cooler Master announced the launch of V1100/V1300 SFX Platinum power supplies, which provide surging power for building high-performance Mini-ITX systems. These new power supplies not only have high-rated power but also support the new PCIe 5.0 external power supply interface. It can meet the “12VHPWR High Power Connector (H+)” standard of PCI-SIG, and the rated power can reach 600W, helping the new generation of flagship graphics cards.

This time, the Cooler Master V SFX Platinum series includes two rated powers of 1100W and 1300W, which are the most powerful SFX power supplies at present. Its overall size is 100×125×63.5 mm, and it has obtained the 80 PLUS Platinum certification, indicating that the conversion efficiency is at least in the range of 89%-94%. As a high-end product, V1100/V1300 SFX platinum power supply has various protection mechanisms, including over-current protection (OCP), over-voltage protection (OVP), short-circuit protection (SCP), over-power protection (OPP), over-temperature protection (OTP), and surge protection, etc.

The V1100/V1300 SFX Platinum power supply adopts a modular design. It provides one 24Pin motherboard power supply interface, two 8Pin/4+4pin CPU power supply interfaces, eight SATA power supply interfaces, three 6+2pin PCIe power supply interfaces, one PCIe 5.0 power supply interface, and four D-type power supply interfaces. A major feature of the new product is that it supports the PCIe 5.0 power supply standard and provides related cables, which are ready for the next-generation AMD RDNA 3 architecture and NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture GPU. In a Mini-ITX system with a small space, it is not easy to support a top-level graphics card with a maximum power consumption of 675W. The equipped 92mm fan may be noisy under a high workload.

Cooler Master has officially released the V1100/V1300 SFX platinum power supply but has not disclosed the specific launch time and price. Given its SFX specifications, powerful performance, and complete support for the next-generation flagship graphics card, I believe the price will be higher.
