The MasterWatt 550 is good, similar quality to the Corsair CX.
(German review) https://www.computerbase.de/2018-03/cooler-master-masterwatt-enermax-revobron-netzteil-test/
 
The only real issue with that mwe is that it contains solely 85c rated teapo caps.
While teapo are not a trainwreck on component quality really there's no excuse for using 85c rated caps in this day & age imo.

It performs well enough,fairly on par with the cx550 but I would expect it to degrade quicker (lower life expectancy) than the cx550 which is full of 105c rated japanese caps ,the only non japanese ones are polymers which last forever.

CM have given it a 5 year warranty though which shows they have some confidence in its life expectancy.

MERGED QUESTION
Question from Abbas_Dhd : "Is POWER SUPPLY COOLER MASTER MWE 550 good for my build?"











 
The Mae is low end , non certified, old design , group regulated.
The master watt is 80 bronze, newer dc-dc design , 5 year warranty.

It costs more because it's a lot better.

Is the cx450m available in stock ?? Because it can run a 970 no issue & is better than either.

For **** sake, there are 2 different mwe550's It seems (cheers coolermaster)

That is a newer design unit than I said above , the masterwatt is still way better as are the newer corsair cx
