    Default CoolerMaster to release Silent Pro Hybrid PSU

    Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, is proud to announce a world’s first in power supply technologies, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series. Equipped with fully modular cables, centralized control of power supply and system fans, a noise-free operation mode, and an included 5.25” drive bay fan controller module, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series becomes the industry benchmark to aspire to.

    A New Revolution
    Silent Pro Hybrid represents a paradigm shift in the way power supplies will be perceived within a system setup. It includes the features that many enthusiasts demand such as full control over cable management with fully modular cables, over 90% efficiency with 80Plus Gold Certification, noise-free operation, and other value-added features that ensure these users get the most out of their purchase.



    Direct Fan Control
    With a power supply integrated 7V fan power port and included 5.25” drive bay fan controller module, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series removes the middleman by taking an unnecessary load off of the motherboard. This direct connection between power supply and fan controller provides the user with immediate on-the-fly control over the 135mm Super Silent Hydraulic Bearings power supply fan and up to 3 other system fans. The power and system fan speeds are adjusted independently via two dials. Users may determine the level of control they would like to wield by switching between automatic and manual modes for the power supply fan.

    Noise-free Operation
    The first to offer a “fanless” mode, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series seeks to eliminate unneeded fan noise. The power supply fan can be completed turned off to essentially operate as if it were fanless. This mode persists until loads become greater than 200W. At this point, a safe mode will activate the fan and cool according to the level of the load.

    Simple Setup and Maintenance
    Needs differ between systems and a fully modular cable setup allows the user to determine what is critical to their setup. This individualized approach provides for easier management of cables that open the door for a professional cable routing look with less overall effort. Maintenance and upgrades on the main power supply unit become extremely efficient and effective. Upgrade from one wattage to another by simply detaching all cables from the power supply and replace it with another, more powerful, unit in the Silent Pro Hybrid Series. All of this is done without disconnecting cables from the system itself. A computer can now be back up and running to work or game in a matter of seconds.

    Price and Availability
    The Silent Pro Hybrid Series will come in 850W, 1050W, and 1300W models and will be available for US region and Asia in October, and Europe region on December 2011, with price €199.99, €249.99 and €299.99 MSRP at retail and online locations that carry your favorite Cooler Master, CM Storm, and Choiix products.

    So... It's fully modular. Welcome to the club, CM, you're only a year late.

    Built-in 7V. I wonder if they added another rectifier/DC-DC module for that, or if they're doing the +5V as ground thing in their own production PSU.


    Enhance?
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,
    My PSU in a box, baby!

    My first and only reaction to this was "lol, pathetic".

    Too little, too late, CM. "The first to offer a fanless mode", yeah sure...
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Time to see, if they are any good. When samples get sent, that is.

    What marketing says - wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

    Looking forward to see a revised silentpro gold platform with better performance.

    I think they only need a simple resistor controller to get 7V from 12V. A lot of fan controllers do that since fans are not demanding.

    Honestly, if they're priced well, down tune the ripple from Silent Pro Gold, and tune up the Vreg on the minor rails then it's not all that bad.

    Police arrest two kids. One was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.

    I just noticed the spg1200 and the new 1300w uses only 6pins for the 8pin pcie.

    I'm not sure if PureOC is a reliable source for PSU review, but they just published a review for the Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W power supply. Thanks ef3393 for sharing the link:

    If their testing results are trustable, the ripple suppression of the PSU is a little disappointing.
