Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500W

Cooler Master a name known for gaming as well as extremes has extended its Silent Pro M2 line to a system like one mentioned above. As of today the 1000W model will be upped by a 1500W model with all the cabling and connectors to support the ultimate rig. The new model offers dual 12v rails with 55A on the first one and 70A on the second. Looks like the making of a pretty good PSU in our eyes. Read on to learn more about it.

Introduction to the Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500 Watt Power Supply

We have been looking at power supplies for a very long time here at Pro-Clockers. And it seems through that time we have seen trends happened. In no order but at one time it was about pure power then there was a time it was about the most amount of power in the smallest package. And then recently it was efficiency but lately we have seen a trend where it’s about the most amount of power with a combination of having the highest level of efficiency. Physical size has been thrown out the window pretty much.

With video cards like the NVidia GTX 690 on the market and a dual GPU Radeon card coming to market in the near future power to accommodate them is a must. A single GTX 690 recommends a good quality 650W power supply, so imagine someone with enough money in the bank to put two or more of these in a single box. Pure awesomeness. But it would require a good power supply with brut power to comfortably sustain it. And a high efficiency rating would not hurt either.

Silent Pro M2 1500W features the highest wattage of our power supply series. It utilizes a powerful dual 12V rail that is capable of powering the most extreme system builds with multiple graphics cards running in NVIDIA SLI or AMD CrossFire. A skillfully designed aluminum-copper heatsink combined with a 135mm Super Silent Hydraulic Bearing fan help maintain low noise and temperatures under typical operations. A hybrid modular cable system ensures that critical components receive a strong hard wired connection while allowing the user to determine to customize their cable management. Silent Pro M2 Series features a length five year warranty.

Closer look

The Silent Pro M2 1500W is now the highest wattage power supply that Cooler Master is currently offering. Surprisely it is being offered as part of Cooler Master third highest series of power supplies. The top models are the Gold rated Hybrid models that included the neat little front panel mounted dashboard. While the next in line is the 80Plus Gold member, Solid Pro Gold and there is the Silent Pro M2 series which are Silver rated.

The Silent Pro M2 members consist of 520, 620, 720, 850, 1000 wattages and this massive 1500W unit. Like many other companies, Cooler Master is going to have all PC builders covered when it comes to their power supplies.

The 1500W M2 visibly is rather plain to look at and I am not saying that in a negative matter. I am one to believe a power supply is meant to provide its power and not to draw attention. The unit comes in a matte black finish all around.

A series of stickers do cover the unit beginning with the sides with its large M2 logo and wattage size displayed. Yes, it’s large but not over bearing.

The top of unit is where you will find all the specifications of the drive. Here we see that the unit has dual 12v rail while the smaller 1000W model is only a single 12v powerhouse. The rails are 70 and 55 amps respectfully. There is more than ample ampere going to the different components of the system like the motherboard and graphic cards.

A 135mm fan is used to cool the interior working of the unit. It is a hydraulic dynamic bearing fan that is PWM controlled for quiet operation.

The inside panel of the unit has a total of eight plug-ins for the modular cabling. Three of the connectors are used for the six PCIe connectors while the other five are designated for the drive and other peripheral connectors.  The main and EPS plugs is a permanent fixture. Check the list below for a full count of the connections for the M2.

If for some reason you really need a 4-pin EPS connection the unit comes with an adapter.

The extensions are plentiful and should cover your every need. Each are sleeved in a rubber material that hug each individual cable inside. This is another option to having someone sleeve each individual cable which tends to be very costly.

Conclusion

We agreed to take a look at this power supply knowing we would not be able to put together a solid system to measure its basic voltage performance on the three major rails like we normally do. So, with that doing said we opted not to throw the unit on our meager little test bench. We did want to bring the existence of the unit to you other readers.

We have yet to receive a Cooler Master power supply that did not live up to its full potential. And we have several around the lab and in systems including my own that is rounding as strong as the day we install it. And we are positive those that have extreme gaming rigs that would need such power this new Silent Pro M2 1500W would be any different.

According to all the numbers that Cooler Master throws around on the product page on this beast SLI’ing a couple of NVIDIA GTX 690 cards should not be an issue. And at the same time you don’t have to worry about your electricity bill compared to some of the older model power supplies due to the high level efficiency Silver rating. And if that is not enough the Silent Pro M2 entire series offers all the various forms of over, under, load and current protection.

The Silent Pro M2 1500W is said to have a MSRP of $399.99. This makes the unit one of if not the most expensive power supply available.
