Cooler Master Silent Pro Platinum 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

Cooler Master Silent Pro Platinum 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review
Cooler Master's latest brings higher efficiency and the world's first integrated 7V fan port with it, but does so at the cost of some performance.

Inside the Box

Once we open the box in a box, we are presented with this. The foam utilized to protect the power supply is extremely dense and should keep things protected short of being crushed.

Removing the unit from the PSU cozy reveals the matte black finish on the unit and the I/O specification label on the top.

Both sides feature the same Silent Pro Platinum 1000W logo.

There isn't anything special on the back, just your standard mesh grill, AC input and on/off rocker switch.

On the front, we find all of the modular connectors along with pin layouts for all of the connectors except the fans.

Taking a look at the front, we find the modular connections. It is nice to see the pin out for each connector listed here.

The bottom features the 135mm HDB fan which cools the Silent Pro Platinum 1000W. The fan is protected by the chrome wire mesh grill which provides a nice amount of contrast to the unit.

All modular cables are of the flat ribbon type.

Also included with the power supply are mounting screws, AC input cord, two fan extension cables and the user manual.
