Cooler Master has been in the business for quite a number of years now and what was once a small company dedicated to developing and distributing thermal solutions has grown up quite a bit. The Cooler Master we know today provides not only cooling solutions, but cases, drive enclosures and of course, power supplies.
In the past, we have taken a look at a number of Cooler Master products including a number of power supplies, most notably a few from Cooler Master's Real Power Pro line up, the 850W
power supplies. Although we have taken a short break since Cooler Master products since then, they have been keeping busy and we welcome them again with the brand new Silent Pro M power supply.
Here at Overclockers Online, we have taken a look at some of the most capable power supplies on the market; ones that can power the best of today's hardware with plenty of room to spare and coincidently, ones that will leave a gaping hole in your wallet. But, as much as we enjoy playing with cutting edge hardware, we do recognize that for the vast majority of users such hardware is, for the most part, irrelevant. In our review today, we will have a look at the 500W variant of the Silent Pro M series of power supplies, claiming dead silent operation, single 12V rail power supply design, modular connections and affordability.
