Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The test results for the Cooler Master MWE Gold 750W Full Modular power supply were all acceptable with no noted problems. Voltage regulation and AC ripple suppression were good and the power supply managed to meet the 80 Plus Gold efficiency criteria (just barely when operating on 120 VAC and at elevated temperatures).
As the name implies, the Cooler Master MWE Gold 750W Full Modular power supply is, well, fully modular. There is only one 4+4 pin CPU cable/connector, which shouldn’t be a problem for most users. There are four 6+2 pin PCI-E connectors with two per cable. All of the cables are built with relatively light (18 gauge) wire.
The selling price for the three Cooler master MWE Gold Full Modular Series power supplies at the time of this writing is listed below: (amazon.com, December, 2018)
• Cooler Master MWE Gold 750W Full Modular ($99.99 USD)
• Cooler Master MWE Gold 650W Full Modular ($89.99 USD)
• Cooler Master MWE Gold 550W Full Modular ($62.99 USD)
Overall, Cooler Master’s new MWE Gold 750W Full Modular power supply didn’t really impress us. We didn’t find anything wrong; it just appears to be one more OK power supply in an already saturated market with a lot of competition. And at this price point ($100 bucks) there are other 750W Gold certified units that offer better performance and higher-quality with longer warranties (Seasonic, Corsair, EVGA, to name a few).
