Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500-watt Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

Cooler Master shows off the new Silent Pro M2 series with their 1500W behemoth. You might not need 1500 watts of power, but the 12 PCIe GPU power connectors are nice if you need to build a GPU beast.

Inside the Box

As you can see, the unit is well protected during shipping. It has foam surrounding the unit on all sides and even the top. Foam also separates it from the cables to prevent them from scratching the power supply itself.

The top of the unit gives us a great shot at the semi-gloss black finish used on the power supply. I/O specifications are listed here and we could tell the unit was abnormally long. As you can see the power supply measures 8 3/4" long. Most power supplies are between 6 1/2" to 7" so keep that in mind if you're considering this power supply in smaller cases.

This side simply designates the power supply.

The other side is identical and doesn't even invert the logo.

Moving towards the front we find the modular connectors. Note that there is no grommet around where the natively wired cables exit the unit.

Spinning it some more brings us to the back which shows us the standard honeycomb mesh exhaust with heavy duty on/off rocker switch. As the power supply has a C20 style coupler on it, Cooler Master has placed a warning sticker over it telling you that you need an outlet rated for at least 16A for this power supply.

Flipping things over reveals the 135mm fan that actively cools the Silent Pro M2 1500W power supply.

All modular cables are of the ribbon type and do not require sleeving.

Package contents also include the user manual, warranty card and mounting screws. No form of cable management is included.
