So I'm looking at the Cooler Master V-Series 1000w or the Cooler master Silent pro 1000w... they are the same price at both 80+ gold, so idk which to get? Is one better then the other?

More about : psu

What are you running exactly? 1000 watts is a bit excessive unless you have major crossfire/sli. Coolermaster makes fairly good psus, Something like Seasonic/Corsair/Antec is better though.

1st: Make sure it's the Silent Pro "Gold" M1000w, the standard Silent Pro 1000w is Bronze certified, not gold...

The V is fully modular (so 24 pin and 8 pin CPU are removable) and the silent pro gold isn't fully modular (24 pin, 8pin and 2 PCI-e are not removable)

i would look at the cable you need and then choose the one with the cable i need (if you want to SLI or not, PCI-e will be important, etc...)

From what i've seen, they're surely same internals but wired differently as this test http://www.kitguru.net/components/power-supplies/zardon... overload the V-1000 to 1192w and the M1000 is 1200w Peak too so...

It only depends on price (grab the cheaper) and/or if you need specific connectivity but both are capable of doing 4way SLI/Crossfire and have 2 8pin CPU for things like an EVGA SR-X (2 cpu on the same board) so either will do fine

I by no means need this now but i am saving for a 9970 or 780 and will later on be getting another one to SLI/CrossfireX with... and i know Seasonic/Corsair/Antec have better PSU's i hear but since i have all Cooler master (case, fans, liquid cooler) i wanna keep it all Cooler Master lol OCD like that i guess :p  I'm wondering is one of these more efficient then the other/better/quieter? Also would 800w be fine with 2 high end video cards? Just wanna make sure I'm good for later on like in a few years and with an SLI/CrosfireX setup?

So both the gold silent pro and v-series are pretty much the same as far as efficiency?

Spawn explained the differences of those specific psus very well, as for Coolermaster I get why you would do that haha, Coolermaster is a fairly good psu company too. As for the 9000 series nobody knows for sure what the power demands are going to be, so the more the you can get would be the best. At E3 the amd booth was running 1200 watt psus on their dual 7990's. I assume that they will be extremely power consuming at the least.

SR-71 got a very great deal !! i would take this one without any hesitation at that price !!
XFX have Seasonic internals and you can turn off the fans on low load to be totally silent ;) 

I'm pretty sure both the V-1000 and the M1000 have the sames internals so same efficiency (really close as fully modular always have a lower efficiency due to connectors resistance but it's as low as 0.5% so not a thing to look that closely)
