Today I have a look at one of Cooler Master’s latest power supplies. It is the all new Silent Pro GOLD 1000 Watt power supply.

The Silent PRO Gold came in a box with a gold and black finish. The front was lacking any photos and information other than the product name, wattage, and a large 80+ gold logo. Around back there is a full specification listing, graphs of both the efficiency curve and noise curve, and pictures of a few of the power supply’s patented components with descriptions of what they do.
Opening the box, we find a very snug, well-packed unit with an inch of foam on all sides . The manual and warranty card are both slipped inside of a nice folder with the Silent PRO Gold logo on it.
Along with the power supply they packed all of the extra cables, power cord, and screws into a nylon bag. The bag has Velcro to keep everything secure; I also love the Silent PRO Gold logo being included on the bag. Not only is it a nice touch, but it will help you keep track of bags if you have more than one modular power supply in the future.
The rear side perspective is showing the native motherboard cabling and seven modular connectors.
The ATX motherboard cable is 50 CM long and should give you enough reach to the motherboard. At the top we see the fan. It’s rated to 21 dBA of fan noise thanks to the low RPM fan design combined with the new heat-sink design. I can confirm that this PSU is nearly silent.

The build quality of the Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W power supply is excellent – the finish is good and comes very well packaged with everything needed for a successful installation. The Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W is worthy of your consideration. If you are in need of a power supply for your next build/upgrade, or something to reliably power a couple of 5970′s in crossfire, then this power supply will certainly do the job.
