There are just some times where it’s not in the budget for you to get the PC part you want, but need your PC in working order. Or maybe you are building a PC for a friend, family member, or customer who needs to save every penny they can. These are the times where durability and reliability become key questions. When it is time to save a few dollars on your PSU, you want to consider the Cooler Master Extreme 2 Series.

There is not much to say here as the CM Extreme 2 series is not about flash or extra special features. This series of PSUs sacrifices the fancy stuff to over engineer the core components to give you a solid PSU for a great price. The Extreme 2 series uses resistors with a heat tolerance of up to 105C (221F), multiple over power protection breakers, and a 3 year warranty.

This reminds me of a BFG power supply I bought 5 years ago to build a friend’s PC. It had your basic overload protections and that was it. Just like these Cooler Master Extreme 2 PSUs, it was built like a tank and is still working to this day. Giving up a few premium features doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality all together is basically my point here, especially with these prices.

4 wattages will be available for this series

  • 475w MSRP $49.99
  • 525w MSRP $54.99
  • 625w MSRP $74.99
  • 725w MSRP $94.99
