Coolmax V-500 Power Supply Review

Conclusions

The Coolmax V-500 is a textbook example of why you should not buy a USD 20 power supply. Its inability of delivering its labeled wattage is not its worst problem. It presents lousy efficiency between 66.8% and 77.1%, its voltages are out of range, and noise and ripple levels are above the maximum allowed. A perfect weapon of mass destruction. Stay away.
