Cooler Master Reveals the Silent Pro Hybrid Series PSUs

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.

    I came in expecting a lower wattage, fanless PSU. If it has a fan, it's not "silent"!

    Still, looks like a cool product. Might be worth the price.

    Making the 24-pin motherboard and 8-pin CPU cables modular is completely pointless...

    nordleadMaking the 24-pin motherboard and 8-pin CPU cables modular is completely pointless...But cool nonetheless. Wouldn't be "fully" modular if they left those on there:) And you never know...maybe one day we'll move away from ATX and/or 24 AND 8 pin power to MBs...

    It's amazing how much PSUs have changed over the last 10 years. I remember going to CompUSA to buy a 300w unit for my "new" P4 system and I thought 300 was pretty high.

    I wonder what the next major change will be in the PSU world?

    I hope this will be an improvement over the current Silent Pro series. CM hasn't been making well-performing PSUs. I hope these PSUs will give CM a good name in the PSU market.

    Overpriced, overpowered and who needs to adjust the fan on a PSU?

    amazing how they ignore 80-90% of the market ...
    Most all of us don't need over 400W (even if many think otherwise)
