- DC-to-DC Technology
- 120mm HDB Fan
- 80 PLUS Bronze Efficiency
- Flat, Black Cables


POWER UP

The MWE Bronze offers a simple, reliable way to power your mid-range system safely and efficiently. The 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency rating, DC-to-DC circuit design, discrete cables, silent mode, and 120mm HDB fan offer a power supply unit that's solid in features and performance while remaining simple. This PSU will handle all your core computing needs with none of the hassles or challenges of additional specialty features, software synchronization, or other bells and whistles. Just plug the cables you need into your components and get to work. For a great computing experience, you can't go wrong with the MWE Bronze.


80 PLUS BRONZE EFFICIENCY

The efficiency of your power supply unit is important because it directly affects you system's performance and your power bill. The efficiency rating does not reflect the quality or reliability of a PSU. It only reflects the unit's ability to move power from the wall to your components. The higher a PSU's efficiency is, the lower the total amount of power it needs to power your system. The MWE Bronze series has an 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency rating, meaning it has a guaranteed typical efficiency of 85%.

Cooler Master now reports Cybenetics noise and efficiency ratings for current power supply units where applicable. For more information about the Cybenetics rating system and their work with Cooler Master please click here.


DC-TO-DC CIRCUIT DESIGN

Power comes in multiple voltage levels. The wall delivers power in one voltage level but your components each need a specific voltage to operate properly. The process of converting raw power from the wall to the multiple voltage levels your parts need requires special components to complete this process quickly, efficiently, and safely. The MWE Bronze's DC-to-DC + LLC technology was painstakingly crafted to accomplish this goal. The Dual Forward circuit layout has been designed to convert 12V power to 3V and 5V levels with minimal ripple noise, 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency, and reduced risk to your connected hardware.


ACTIVE POWER FACTOR CORRECTION

The many processes required by a power supply unit in order to take power directly from the wall or other fixed power source, convert it to the correct output required by the connected components, and then distribute that power to said components safely can be full of risks. This is why it's important for a PSU to have the right protections and regulations to ensure this process runs correctly.

The MWE Bronze's Active Power Factor Correction uses a specialized circuit to correct power factor, leading to reduced total harmonics, corrected AC input voltage, and increased overall efficiency output.


120MM HDB FAN

The constant struggle between cooling and noise is as old as the consumer PC industry itself. Keeping your components cool without having to hear about it while you work is still one of the greatest challenges for all fan based cooling technologies. The MWE Bronze tackles this problem with a 120mm HDB fan. The hydro dynamic fan bearing creates less friction, making it great for low RPM operations. This technology keeps the fan running smoothly and efficiently for longer, keeping the noise level down and extending the lifespan of the PSU.


FLAT, BLACK CABLES

For many PC Builders with aesthetics in mind, cabling can be on of the most troublesome parts of assembling a PC. Cables can be confusing, too short or too long, and they almost never look good. The MWE Bronze uses flat and flexible black cables to help deal with these problems. These cables are more discrete and flexible, making them easier to implement into your system while taking up less space. This is especially useful for smaller cases and preserving airflow.

Quiet and enough juice

Currently running M.2 Drive, SSD, Ryzen 5 3600XT, 4 Fans (3 of them Halo RGB Set), Sapphire 5500 XT, 2 x 16GB 3200 Memory Modules. No issues with power. Runs quietly. Love it!

Works well

Works as you would expect, super quiet, my only gripe is the cables, they are rather stiff and hard to route nicely. Once they are in place they do look good though.

AMAZING!!!

I have never had an issue running this PSU. The fan is super quiet and the PSU does not have a coil whine after running UniHaven. The cables are a bit sturdy, but it's not bad enough for me to give it a 4 star. I would definitely recommend getting this as it is cheap and reliable. The wires are also long and plenty for all items you would need.
