Cooler Master’s new Silent Pro Hybrid 850W PSU differs somewhat from your average PSU. Like many it is fully modular and uses a single 12V rail which is becoming common for high wattage PSUs. The 80+ Gold rating is a little rarer but what really makes it stand out is a faceplate that acts as a fan controller. The controller allows a variety of speeds to be set for the PSU fan as well as three system fans and can even switch the PSU into fanless mode to make this PSU truly silent. Guru3D put the PSU through its paces and were truly impressed by this ~$200 PSU, see why in the full review.
If you are looking for a little less power, Lee just wrapped up his review of the Corsair TX550M and TX750M PSUs.
"Cooler Master launched the new Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid PSU series. The end result as such is enticing alright, a very nice power supply rates 80+ gold, that comes with a modular design and one big massive 12V rail, which we all like so very much. Carrying a 80+ Gold certification (90% efficiency at typical load) , being modular, with included fan controller and having good looks yeah the Silent Pro Hybrid promises to be an excellent product series."
