The three stars of the Cooler Master V Series, the 850W, 1000W and 1200W are up for review at Legion Hardware.  All three have a 135 mm fan for cooling and feature a single +12VDC rail though the amperage differs, 70A, 83A and 100A for the three respectively.  The two lower powered PSUs feature a 5 year warranty and are rated 80 Plus Gold while the 1200W carries a Platinum rating and a 7 year warranty.  The modular cabling is worth mentioning, it is flat which will allow you to have very clean cabling in your machine and may tip the scales towards this series if you like to keep your case clean looking.

"Finally, we have been very pleased with the Cooler Master V series, and believe that they would make a fine addition to any high-end gaming system. Enthusiasts will be able to invest their hard earned cash in a V Series power supply knowing it is backed by a full 5-year Cooler Master warranty, while the V1200 Platinum offers an industry leading 7 year warranty."

When you have a beastly computer you need a decent power supply to keep up with it. While I personally seem to be comfortable with a single-rail 750W power supply some people might need more wattage than that. Anandtech recently reviewed the In Win 1200W power supply with its “Japanese Industrial Grade Capacitor” which should be plural and “Strict Voltage Regulation (+/- 5%)” which is only as strict as the ATX spec.

Anandtech had a few complaints about the power supply. Firstly, they complained that the provided cable is only able to carry 10A which is insufficient if you actually intend to draw its rated levels of amperage. They also complained about the price being too high though acknowledge that the price might drop to around the $200 mark though even then it would be up against comparable competition. Check out Anandtech for their review.
