Cooler Master does a very good job with connectors and cables on the Silent Pro M2 1500W. What most will see that is abnormal are the 12 PCI-E connectors. That's right, there are enough PCI-E connectors to feed six or more GPU's, depending on how many power connectors each one requires. Peripheral connectors are handled in the form of 12 SATA, five Molex and one FDD connector. Also worth noting are the dual EPS12V connectors. These are both fixed 8-pin connectors and neither one can be split into a 4+4 ATX connector.
Rail distribution is very simple for this dual 12V rail power supply. All of the natively wired connectors are on 12V1 and rated for 70A while all of the modular connectors are on 12V2 and rated for 55A.
A Look Inside
There is quite a bit of passive cooling inside the unit and you can bet that it is all put to very good use under full load.
Quad Panasonic capacitors sit on the primary side of the Silent Pro M2 1500W power supply.
Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.
Cooler Master uses the DFS132512H fan to provide the active cooling for the Silent Pro M2 1500W power supply.
