Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500W Power Supply Review

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 series is very popular with units ranging from 420W all the way up to 1500W.  Today we are looking at the highest wattage Silent Pro M2, the 1500W.  It features a dual 12V rail design, 135mm durable hydraulic dynamic bearing fan, a 80PLUS Silver efficiency rating, modular cables, and a 5 year warranty.  Read on as we put this power supply to the test!

Special thanks to Cooler Master for providing us with the Silent Pro M2 1500W Power Supply to review.
