Cooler Master Silent Pro Platinum 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply Review - Cabling Arrangement and A Look Inside

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.

Cabling Arrangement

Cooler Master provides a good selection of cables for the Silent Pro Platinum 1000W power supply. Native cables come in the form of the Main, dual EPS12V connectors, and a single cable with dual PCI-E 8-pin connectors on it. Modular cabling provides four more PCI-E 8-pin connectors, 12 SATA connectors, five Molex connectors and a single FDD connector. The short and long cables for SATA/Molex connectors are great and the only thing that I would like to see changed would be for one of the EPS12V connectors to be modular.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

 

 

A Look Inside

Lots of cooling is present within the Silent Pro Platinum 1000W unit, including an all copper heat sink.

Three Panasonic capacitors are on the primary side of the Silent Pro Platinum 1000W power supply.

The secondary side of the power supply isn't as kind to the eyes. We find many Teapo capacitors here and this is always a sign that ripple will not be as low as we like it to be.

Cooler Master uses its own DFS132512M fan to provide the active cooling for the Silent Pro Platinum 1000W power supply. It is quite obvious that the unit is manufactured by Young Lin.
