The Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W power supply offers not only a gigantic high performance, but also a fan control for three more fans in the PC system and the internal 135 mm fan. In auto mode, the power supply is passively cooled up to an overall load of approx. 200 watts.

The supply of the Coolermaster 1050 Watt PSU …

In this cardboard box comes the Cooler Master 80PLUS Gold power supply with its accessories.

That is contained in the box …

Here’s a first look into the box of the noble power supply.

On the following picture one can see the black 185x150x85mm power supply with its complete accessories. The power supply is fully modular and has no attached cables. In the scope of delivery are a lot of cables, four screws for the PSU, a fan control, four screws for the fan controller, a folding sheet which contains a pictured building instruction, power supply pin allocations, warning references, warranty (5 years) and the disposal references. The bag is very useful, since one can store unnecessary cables very well. Cooler Master SiliconPad antivibration pads (e.g. Silent Pro M) are not included in the Silent Pro Hybrid package.

Here you can see a picture with all PSU cables and plugs:

Here you can see a picture of the included power supply cables:

1x 65cm ATX 2.2 cable with one 24-pin plug (65cm) 2x 70cm 12V CPU cables with 2x 4+4 plug (70cm) 2x 75cm PCI-E cables with 2x 6+2-Pin plug (65+10cm) 2x 65cm PCI-E cables with 1x 6+2-Pin (65cm) 3x 80cm cables with 4x SATA plugs (50+10+10+10cm) 1x 70cm cable with 3x molex plugs (50+10+10cm) 1x 70cm cable with 2x molex plugs and one floppy connector (50+10+10cm) 3x 3/4-Pin fan connector 1x 220V power cable 0,75mm²

The cables are very flat and thus can be installed properly in most cases. All plugs can be inserted well and not too easily detach from the respective drive.
