The Silent Pro Hybrid power supplies are part of Cooler Master’s first fully modular power supply series with integrated dual 7V fan ports. It utilizes a single powerful +12V rail that operates at over 90 percent efficiency and carries an 80Plus Gold certification.
One of the unique features of the new PSU is the integrated 7V fan
power port and 5.25-inch drive bay fan controller. This provides the user the ability to control both the 135 mm power supply fan and up to three system fans. The fans speeds are adjustable independently via the two dials on the controller. For those that don't want to control the power supply fan speed, there is the option to switch between automatic and manual modes.
The Silent Pro Hybrid is the first to offer a "fanless" mode, which seeks to eliminate unneeded fan noise. The power supply fan can be completely turned off to essentially operate as if it were fanless. This mode persists until loads become greater than 200W. At this point, a safe mode will activate the fan and cool according to the level of the load.
