We have taken a look at their Silent Pro Hybrid and Silent Pro Gold units in the past and today we are taking a look at the newer Silent Pro M2 series.

The ZM1000-HP Plus features a dual heatpipe cooling system, lots of connectors, modular cables, and 80PLUS Silver certification for efficiency. See how the unit measures up in this review.
