    Default Cooler Master Silent Pro M RS-600 - as good as RS-850?

    Unfortunately there's only a HardwareSecrets review for the RS850. Does anyone have any experience with the RS-600, or know if it's the same basic build as the RS850? The fact that it's an M600 is a bit confusing, given there's the RS and then there's the M, but this seems to be both.

    Anyone have anything good or bad to say about the Silent Pro RS-600? I'm trying to find faults at $80, but based on the RS850 it looks amazing, so I could use a sanity check here.

    Thanks!

    Yes, but the 600W is from Enhance, not Fortron.

    Really now. That's interesting, and a touch surprising. I'd figure they'd use a common board for 600-850 at least.

    But the numbers between the FSP and Enhance are pretty much the same? Quality's about the same as well? Really important here, voltage sensitive motherboard.

    I gather you are in the US?

    VX550 is the same price before rebate:

    Yup, I'm aware on the VX550. The catch is that it has to be modular. There's pretty significant space restrictions going on, and I know for a fact the VX550's cabling won't fit. (I tested with one of my VX450's.) Even the RS-600's a tight as hell fit, but the modular cables make it possible to fit it in.

    Also, to clarify a bit; when I say voltage sensitive, I really mean it. The peak on the M850 was 48.8mV ripple on the 12V2; the board does NOT like anything over 70mV on the 12V lines.

    Honestly would rather an HX520, but damned if I can find those ANYWHERE.

    the 600W from Enhance is much better than the 850/1000W from FSP, or how do you think about a 850/1000W PSU with group regulation design. (500~600W should be the top of group regulation design but FSP push it to 850/1000W)

    If I had to bet, I would probably go with the TP-550 in the absence of good reviews. CM and Thermaltake can't be trusted between individual models as much as Antec or Corsair.

    HX520 has been discontinued.

    Enhance is IMO a much better OEM than Fortron, so I'd go for the Silent Pro.

    Not at all. Typically, your platforms are more limited to that.

    For example: 450 to 600 could be one platform. 550 to 700 could be another platform. 700 to 1000 could be another platform. Based on price and performance, it wouldn't be unusual to jump to different OEM's when spec'ing out a 500, 600, 700, 850, 1000, etc. There's a potential for three different OEM's right there.

    Silent Pro M 600W and 850W are from two different OEMs. They're pretty much the same judging by performance and acoustical profile.
