Cooler Master is well-known for their cases and CPU coolers, but they also offer some very high quality power supplies. 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 Silent Pro M2 1500W power supply comes in a very nice retail package. On the front are some of the main features including the 80PLUS Silver certification and 5 year warranty. On the back there are some specifications listed as well as graphs for the fan curve and efficiency curve.
On the side of the box is a full listing of specifications and input / output figures.
Opening the box up everything is nicely packed inside. Getting it all out your have the Silent Pro M2 1500W power supply, modular cables, power cable, mounting screws and instructions. I was surprised that there was no carrying bag included for the modular cables.
