0.5W system standby
Cooler Master has built the MasterWatt Lite series to be compliant with new ErP regulations so your PSU uses less than 0.5W on system standby in normal situations. Furthermore, efficiency is greater than 82/85/82 per cent at 20/50/100 per cent load to fulfil the strict EU617/2013 regulations, said to now be mandatory in Europe.
A full set of protections including OCP/OVP/UVP/SCP/OPP with built-in Over Temperature Protection (OTP) are present.
These are captive cable power supplies with connectors provided as shown in the table above.
Cooler master says that you will be able to buy a MasterWatt Lite PSU within two weeks. Suggested retail pricing is shown in the uppermost table.
