Hello,

Just a simple question this time. Is the Cooler Master Silent Pro M 850W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply a reliable PSU for a build? It shouldn't fail, or do anything it is not supposed to, right?

Thanks,
Any questions be sure to ask!

The XFX 850W is a reliable PSU to choose then, as I see both of you had it in your reply?

I can vouch for the PC Power and Cooling's reliability, I have the 600W model of the Silencer MKIII and couldn't be happier

So my recommendation is the PC Power and Cooling. Good luck with your build, or PSU upgrade

Is there any difference in the two (XFX and PC Power & Cooling)? I'm stuck on which one to go with.

This may sound silly but, why does the PC Power & Cooling PSU have these circle like ports for the cables? I've never really have seen that type before. What is the difference between the circle type how the XFX PSU has it?

They are both very similar, I would go with the PC Power and Cooling because it has a 2 year longer warranty, just in case, but you hopefully won't need it since they are so reliable
