The Silent Pro Platinum PSUs are fully compliant with the 80-PLUS® Platinum efficiency requirement with peak efficiency up to 94%. It features modular cable design integrated with dual 7V fan ports as well as equipped a 135mm ultra silent hydraulic bearing fan, with +12V single rail outputs efficiency that can reach up to 984W output at 82A, enough to power up most high-end VGAs and CPUs at greatly quiet operation. No doubt it is specially designed for hardcore gamers who desire extremely high-efficiency and powerful gaming products. Now lets’ take a look at what we have … shall we?
With the connections, Cooler Master laid out a nice and easy to read guide on where every connection you will have goes. There should be no confusion with this!
The label on top of the PSU gives you all the stats you need to know. The single 12V rail sporting 82A and 984W output is great to see.
The hardwired cables sport two hardwired CPU cables and one PCI-E. The second CPU cable should really be made modular, because not everyone needs a second one of those.
The cooling fan has Cooler Master’s logo on it and its model number is DFS132512M (12V, 0.2A, 2.4W, 1500RPM, 34.4dBA, 78.1CFM).
The soldering looks nice on the cabling, which can very a lot in lower quality PSU’s. You also can see the soft-start relay structure which limits inrush and thermistor currents. The green capacitors are Teapo capacitors that filter the 12V output.
The AC filter starts where the power cord plugs in with two Y capacitors, two X capacitors.
Two more X caps, two more Y caps, two coils and a double diode surge blocker. The heatsinks are optimized for high airflow to help keep everything as cool as possible. The LP9 transformer can handle temperatures of up to 120C. At the top you have the Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) that allocates AC power through the system.

Two modular PCI-E connections.
Twelve Sata connections.
Five 4-pin molex connections and a floppy drive connection, plus the two fan cables and their connections.
Overall, the Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000W looks really good in our overview. They used quality components, minus the Teapo capacitors choice, which was somewhat questionable. The inside soldering looked good and actually looked nice and clean. We have seen some insides of PSU’s where it looks like a kid put it together. If this PSU performs as well as it looks with the mostly quality components, it should do just fine out there in the market place!
For looks and build quality alone, the Silent Pro Platinum 1000W receives the Techreaction.net Gold Silicon Award!
