It’s been an absolute age since we took a look at a Cooler Master power supply and since I’ve been reviewing power supplies I’ve yet to come across one. However, today we have quite an exciting power supply from Cooler Master that will probably get any enthusiast really excited. The Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 850W PSU is just jam-packed full of features such as a FULLY modular design, an integrated fan controller, 80 Plus Gold certification, a passive fan mode up to 20% load and a beautiful aluminium finish around the fan grille which just compliments the textured black finish beautifully. As you can probably tell I am a fan of this power supply’s design but the real test will have to be how it performs in our tests.
The Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 850W is part of Cooler Master’s extensive Silent Pro series which includes the Silent Pro Gold, Silent Pro M, Silent Pro M2 and of course the Silent Pro Hybrid. Cooler Master’s choice of OEM producer for this particular is Enhance but Cooler Master have extensively modified these PSUs to meet the things they expect such as Silence, aesthetics and just generally quality of finish. Without any further ado let us proceed through this review.
