Cooler Master Silent Pro M 500W Power Supply Review
1 June 2009
Excerpt: Cooler Master’s power supplies are stable, intelligently designed, and efficient, and now Cooler Master adds silent to the mix with its Silent Pro M line. The 500, 600, and 700 watt units are designed to provide stable power as quietly as possible, while still maintaining the 80% efficiency required for the 80PLUS certification. Today we are taking a look at the 500W version in this review. Read on to check it out!
Summary: The Cooler Master Silent Pro M 500W unit combines almost everything; superior aesthetics, good electrical performance and noiseless operation. We loved the fact that this product could stay silent even at full load. The anti-vibration silicon pads are a nice addition too even though this unit will not be causing any vibrations itself, they can dampen vibrations caused by other components. The quality of most of the components used are top notch, with very few exceptions.
Conclusion: Cooler Master is a renowned manufactured for PSUs and cases and once again they have delivered an impressive product which is not only able to maintain stable voltages throughout the whole of testing but is also able to maintain a very low level of noise. For silent enthusiasts this could well be the unit for you as although Cooler Master have sacrificed some cooling in order to keep noise at a minimum, the performance is still more than satisfactory.
Pros: Stable voltages throughout testing, VERY quiet, Reasonable price point, Can handle SLI configurations
Summary: Cooler Master is niet het minst bekende bedrijf, dus is het eigenlijk onnodig de organisatie te introduceren. Laatst kwamen ze nog met de grandioze op de markt, en deze keer testen we een splinternieuwe voeding uit die nog niet eens officieel gelanceerd is. De potentiële opvolger, of misschien wel het leuke nieuwe broertje van de Real Power M520, is de Cooler Master Silent Pro M500.
Pros: + Superstil, + Zuinig en efficiënt, + Goed modulair systeem, + Koel, + Mooi design
