Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 V2 Power Supply Review

A Closer Look

While initially the Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 V2 looks like a fairly standard power supply (in that it’s a black box), there are still more than a few touches that give this a nice look and style.

The fan section of the power supply is certainly well presented with a nice central location as well as having the Cooler Master logo nicely placed in the center. While adding a nice aesthetic touch, it’s not overly ‘in your face’ and as such should suit all users.

The power input bank is well organized with each specific cable port section being given a written description to ensure you put the right things in the right place (this has also been applied to the cables which you’ll see later in this review). Admittedly, with the cables only being of a certain type, it would be practically impossible to get this wrong, but it’s a nice bit of fool-proofing none-the-less. The only minor downside is that the relatively cramped area means that while inserting cables isn’t too difficult, removing them make things a little tight for space.

The rear of the power supply provides some excellent air flow potential with practically all of the available area open. Other than this, however, the panel is fairly standard.

The only mild aspect of criticism we could give is that through the design, you can see into the power supply and, by proxy, a lot of largely unfavourable colors are on display. It would’ve been nicer if Cooler Master had tidied this area up a little, but given that it’s at the rear, it’s not as if you’re going to be starting at it all day long either.

The sides of the power supply largely incorporate the product name and Cooler Master branding which is well located and genuinely adds to the overall aesthetic.

One of the side panels does contain all of the technical information surrounding the power supply which is a nice touch as this is unusually placed on the top or bottom. In other words, in a much more notable location and, in terms of visuals, it really doesn’t add anything positive.

Coming with a sleek and solid aesthetic style, the Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 V2 certainly presents itself well. Albeit, as we noted above, there isn’t anything notably usual here that particularly makes it stand out from the majority of alternatives. Having a look inside, therefore, and of course at the other remaining aspects, seems a more than prudent move.

Cabling

Coming in a thick black plastic sheaving, the cables you are provided with are of an excellent length and, as such, should offer some excellent management options within some of the largest or unforgiving cases. With each cable specifically itemized to denote its use as well, you know exactly what you need to hook up your system and, more importantly, which end goes where!

Internals – A Look Inside!

Open opening the Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 V2 up, the main presentation is decent with all cables and components seemingly well managed within.

The fan itself used in this power supply is a ‘Ong Hua’ design which although not specifically manufactured by Cooler Master, is a design we see used within many power supply designs and, overall, while offering nothing particularly special, we’ve always found it to be a solid component in the past.

A closer look at the PCB gives us a bit of a mixed bag of impressions. While all of the components seem well situation and spaced, there’s rather a lot of unattractive colors on display here. Admittedly, you don’t largely see these when the power supply is fully assembled, but it does generally highlight that when the option was given to ‘tidy’ this up a bit, Cooler Master did not take it.

Unfortunately, due to the position its located within, we were unable to determine the make and, by proxy, origin of this power supplies main capacitor. All we can say for certain is that, for good or bad, it’s not a manufacturer we have encountered before.

Overall Thoughts!

While there are certainly a number of factors that are unclear in regards to the Cooler Master MWE Gold 750 V2, there is nothing within or out that suggests that this is a badly designed power supply. In fact, on the contrary it looks like a solid proposition, but there is, of course, only one way to find out. Let’s get this strapped onto our testing machine!
