    Default Cooler Master Silent Pro M1000

    Hi All,

    I've recently been able to pick up a Silent Pro M1000 for next to nothing, only issue is all the modular cables are missing and i need to get some PCIes for my GPUs,

    I've searched high and low and even contacted CM support (still waiting) and can not find the answer.
    Does anyone know of the pin out for the 6 pin male - 8pin/6+2pin male modular ?

    Or as an alternate does anyone have any any of these cables sitting around they no longer need?

    Thanks in advance

    Is this JG.com 2009 Review what you have?

    For terminology, the PSU has male pins in the front panel, and so you plug in female pins / female connecters into it > connectors act like males, but, are technically females ...

    Ok, whether it's a solid 8pin or a 6+2 GPU connector, it has x3 12volts x5Grounds ... in a 6pin modular port as seen in the review photo, chances are you will find x3 12volts either in the top row (with positive latch) or in the bottom row ... because x3 12volts = x3 wires, 12volts can make its way into the top or bottom row without 'issue', which brings us to the x5 grounds -->

    x5 wires can not fit into x3 holes so they'll have had to jump wires to make it work --> chances are, the grounds = the row you find jumped wires in, there should be at least a pair of jumps, look for the jumps in an online (review or live) photo or video search
    PCI-E.jpg

    To solve the pinout, you can jumpstart PSU on, read all volts/grounds inside the 6pin with a voltmeter, jot them down in a sketch / confirm pinout

    Because the modular 6pin PCI-E design is carried over into the newer V1200/V1000, Below is the pinout for the V-Series PCI-E cable, jumps are in the top row which means the x5 grounds are all in the top row / 12volts are in the x3 bottom row slots

    v series Grfx Chart.jpg
    I made a chart, above, for V-Series Grfx 6pin, confirmed with voltmeter (set to continuity test + audible alarm or set to OHMs) > if you probe all of the 6pins of your Silent Pro (jumpstart PSU on) & they match (Grounds top row with latch / 12volts bottom row) or they do not match (12v top row / grounds bottom), either way you will have solved the pinout > if they match my chart, you can look / ask for V-Series cables (if you find some, plug them in, jump start PSU on, probe the 8pin 6+2 end of cable, confirm volts grounds relative to PCI-E Chart > if ok?, safe to use)(the alternative is to buy V-Series cables and if they're wrong, back all the pins out of the 6pin & transfer them into the rows / slots they need to be in to be compatible, understand? Rebuild the cable > if you intend to 'rebuild the cable', you can at that point use anybody's 6pin cables for the job)

    If you have no luck finding compatible cables, check online for a cable sleever or shop / person who can make you some cables (you will have by then the pinout they might need to make cables from)

    Since most of the Silent Pro series are all made by Enhance, it's very likely they have the same pinout:

    Best thing to do is to use the Modders-Inc link as a reference and confirm with a DMM to see if the voltages shown is correct.

    Online pinout charts can be confirmed with a voltmeter, if there are doubts; in the chart above, the black slots in the PCI-E 6pin that say '2' should mean '2 wires per slot = jumps', black jumps = grounds, so there ya go > jumpstart PSU on, probe 6pin, top row should be x3 grounds / bottom = x3 12volts; if so, pinout is solved & newer V Series 6pin cables would then also be compatible, possibly ordered from your CM rep or anyone offering V-Series cables (individually or boxed sets)

    eBay AU vendor had Grfx cables, sold out, keep an eye out for loose (what we think might be / are compatible) cables like these ... 'custom shops' can also be consulted

    Thanks both of you for your help.

    I have found a could of genuine cables on ebay not for the PSU but they want more then the cost of the PSU and + shipping so ill probs use a shop to make some, i'm tryng to avoid using cables found on ebay just in case they are bad.
