Cooler Master Silent Pro M 500W Power Supply Review

Final Thoughts

Unlike some of the previous Cooler Master power supplies, the Silent Pro M series has a rocker power switch. 80PLUS certification is an excellent thing to have even though some manufacturers have chosen not to seek it, instead choosing to simply tout their efficiency.

I like the Cooler Master warranty, too. It’s 5 years and replacement for just about any failure is guaranteed. Few manufacturers have the chutzpah to say that their technology will last five years.
ThinkComputers gives the Cooler Master Silent Pro M 500W Power Supply a 9 out of 10 score and the Editor’s Choice award.


– 5 year warranty
– Modular
– 80PLUS Certification


– Mesh covered modular cables would be the icing on the cake

Important note: Remember when looking back at the output graphs that my rig actually pulls just 30W less than the maximum sustained output of this, a 500W unit. I wouldn’t feel comfortable using just a 500W unit on this rig-folks with less power-hungry graphics cards and processors would.
