Conclusion

Cooler Master has put out a decent mid-range power supply in the Real Power Pro 750W. While some manufacturers have switched back to single +12v outputs on their high-end power supplies, Cooler Master continues to use multi-rail configurations, in this case a quad setup. What this means is dedicated power output for each video card, along with PCIe cables with EMI noise suppression filters. There are some arguments against multi-rail +12v systems but instances when a single, large +12v rail is required are uncommon.

The fit and finish on the Real Power Pro line is excellent, with a durable black glossy paint, nylon wrapped cables and matching black connectors. This does add some stiffness to the cables and with the unit not being modular you will undoubtedly end up with some that are just in the way. The size of the 750W is very compact, nearly equaling the footprint of smaller rated units. The fan runs quiet at a medium level load, quiet enough not to be audible over other case fans. It would be nice to have a few more molex connectors available but the five that are included were just enough to get the job done.

The 80-Plus efficiency certification and impressive five year warranty are normally only found on much more expensive, higher-end units. I spotted the Real Power Pro listed as low as $100 online, which is a steal for a 750W power supply of this caliber. If you are looking for a good quality, higher wattage unit in a small footprint for not a whole lot of dough, the Cooler Master Real Power Pro line is definitely a good pick.
