Silent Pro M2 is the 2nd Generation of the popular Silent Pro M Series and as you would expect from this PSU series silence is of utmost importance.
We tested the PSU at over 50% and 90% load and the results were pleasing. Voltage variance presented no issues and the noise levels were likewise of no real concern. Living up to its name – though the Silent Pro M2 is noticeable when at 90% load but it is quiet in comparison to other units we have tested.
We like the fact that Cooler Master have only hardwired essential cables into the unit as this means the user can choose exactly what cables are needed within their computer chassis. This avoids cluttering the inside with unnecessary, unused cabling. The modular cables have been given insulation rather than braiding and I really like this idea. The cables are much more flexible and unobtrusive.
The only improvement Cooler Master could make with Silent Pro M2 is the braiding on the hardwired cables. The yellow cables can still be seen, it would be better for them to use something thicker to conceal the yellow and maintain a stealthy black. Cable management is a top priority for most enthusiasts and these cables are easy to deal with but it makes sense to have their physical appearance a solid colour in order to continue that tidiness inside.
Priced around £100inc. VAT the Silent Pro M2 is going to have tough competition from the likes of other rivals who are hitting out with similar rated units but for cheaper.
The Silent Pro M2 continues to excel where both silence and performance is concerned. Build quality is very good, as is cable management potential. Backed by a 5 year warranty the Silent Pro M2 comes highly recommended by Vortez.
