The movement toward clean energy is inevitable and we will all be driving electric cars in the near future. Not all petrol engine cars will be phased out, of course, as there will always be those who can appreciate the rumble of a V8 and will pay a premium for the opportunity to have one. In the same way, the proliferation of tablets and more powerful portable computing devices does not spell doom for the enthusiast desktop PC. To some enthusiasts, the news of a new video card or CPU that is more efficient than the previous generation means they will be able to push it further with the right power supply.
It might be a world foreign to regular system builders but there are plenty of enthusiasts who want to run high-end dual-CPU motherboards and Quad-SLI systems that are running overclocked, cooled by a beefy water-loop system. As efficient as new generation CPUs and GPUs are, power consumption significantly climbs when trying to push it toward the 5GHz or 1GHz barrier. It is with these users in mind that Cooler Master has revamped their Silent Pro M line.
The Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 is a partially modular designed power supply line ranging from 420W all the way to 1500W. The next generation Silent Pro M2 improves upon the previous Silent Pro M series by utilizing a powerful single rail (dual rail for higher-end models) and an improved cooling system, implementing a crafted aluminum-copper heatsink with a 135mm hydraulic dynamic bearing fan. The high-end Silent Pro M2 1500W model has a hardwired and a modular +12V rail that has six 6+2 pins and six 8-pin PCI-E power connectors. The 1500W Silent Pro M2 power supply carries an 80 Plus Silver certification and has an array of safety features, like OVP, UVP, OCP, OPP, OTP and SCP. The Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500W has an MSRP of $399 USD and carries a 5-year warranty.
