    Default Review: CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 600w

    KitGuru has posted a review the modular 600w unit from CoolerMaster's Silent Pro series. KitGuru has included the ripple results on all the rails this time, and the figures are quite good. The unit promises 80plus Gold efficiency. Does it deliver the goods? Check it out....

    The "A unique “L-shaped” heat-sink to remove heat from the PSU" bullet point made me giggle out loud

    Seems like a decent PSU, though

    Color me impressed Cooler Master:
    1.) Good build quality
    2.) Low Ripple
    3.) No inflated wattage
    4.) Solid efficiency

    This is a big jump for them.

    Price makes or breaks it.

    At 100 pounds it's not bad, but it won't make me stop recommending X-650 which can be found around that.

    The ripple of +12V output is suspiciously low considering previous results of 1200W@ITOCP and 800W@HWS. In ITOCP's test, the +12V ripple @ 600W load is more than 60mVp-p. but if measured at 10us time base it would become 25mV@600W, 40mV@1200W.

    Hello guys, someone pointed this thread out to me. I thought I would join up and say that the ripple table on that specific review was initially wrong.

    We tested the 1200W unit a while ago and it measured around 85mV on the 12 rail and we noticed then that something was wrong with the 600w review result.

    It was a user error (yes me) - I uploaded the wrong mV table to the 600w review. The test results given to me where correct, but my upload wasn't.

    Feel free to call me an idiot, im irish, so its not something I havent heard before. Travis, I also have to say that your site is great, i have read it frequently (under translation of course).

    Thanks!

    Glad you fixed that.
    One question for you: do you use an SM-268 with additional programmable loads (2*CSI3710A+4*CSI3711A) to load a power supply, or simply use those six loads?
