OC3D Review: Coolermaster Real Power Pro M1000 1000w Modular PSU

"Coolermaster aren't normally a name we'd associate with high-end PSU's...but all of that is about to change as we review their Real Power Pro 1kw unit."

Quality review

Liking the inclusing of temp recording.

Seems a top piece of kit.

Personally I would consider no back power switch as a "bad" rather than just "mediocre" cause it's really inconvenient, but meh. Solid review

A great review and a solid looking PSU. Just one question why was "Fairly cool operation for a 1000w unit." Listed under mediocre?

Simply because 'fairly cool' means it's alright, OK, nothing out of the ordinary. Mediocre means... OK - Being of no special quality or type: average, common, commonplace etc... Suppose it (mediocre) does carry a bit of a negative connatation... Meh.

Had it been cool/very/exeptionally cool then 'The Good' had it been hot it would have been 'The Bad'.

Edit: imo

TT toughpowers have seen good reviews whereever i've looked... plus it was used for that 3x 8800 Ultra rig posted in the news, so it's up to anything!
