Cooler Master Silent Pro GOLD 1200W
It was only a few years ago when we would look at a 650W power supply, and knew that it had more than enough jam to power, even the most power hungry rig around. Fast forward to present day and we look at what is available on the market, and we see CPU’s with four cores being the norm and an emerging tech sporting six cores, which we know will also become the common place technology in a short period of time. We also see a trend in video cards getting much bigger and more power hungry than ever before.
Even with companies touting the "green" banner around the field the trend for more power remains as strong as ever. This leaves the arduous task of making power supplies that are up to the task, of keeping our rigs running smooth and sufficiently powered, to companies like Cooler Master.
Back in April we had the opportunity to look at the Cooler Master Silent Pro M 1Kw 80+ Bronze certified unit, which yielded very good results and proved to be a very good power supply. Today we have the pleasure of looking at the Silent Pro GOLD series in the flavour of a 1200W unit. If the title GOLD hasn’t given it away as of yet, all of the GOLD series of power supplies have a 80+ Gold certification, so let’s dive into this unit and see what it has to offer.
Thanks go to Cooler Master for supplying the review sample.
