Cooler Master has launched its new Thunder series of power supplies in India, in three models – 450W, 500W, and 600W. According to Cooler Master, the Thunder series has been designed ‘ground up for basic and mainstream computers’, and are supposedly ‘highly-efficient, reliable and powerful’.
The Cooler Master Thunder series is meant for users that need clean and stable power at a reasonable price. Specially designed to deal with the widespread voltage fluctuation problems in India, the Thunder series PSUs can apparently withstand fluctuations between 180~264VAC.
The Thunder series’ dual-layer EMI filter has been fitted to take care of stray interference. The new PSUs’ higher-capacity input capacitors can produce holding times of >14ms under full load. Protection circuits are also integrated for safeguarding PCs against electrical hazards such as over voltage, over power, over current and short circuits. According to Cooler Master, all this gives the Thunder series and impressive MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) of at least 100,000 hours.
Compliant with Energy Star, Blue Angel, ATX 12V v2.3 standards and incorporating 0.99 Active Power Factor Correction (APFC) the Thunder series is meant to provide clean and stable power. Under typical loading conditions, these power supplies are designed to provide up to 85% efficiency.
Cooler Master’s Thunder series sports dual 12V rails to supply enough juice under heavy load conditions. The smart and silent 120mm fan supposedly delivers ‘exceptional airflow and low noise,’ by adapting to the varying temperatures.
The Thunder series power supplies will come with 3 years warranty. You can check out the pricing of the three models below:
