Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200W Power Supply Review

The Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200W is a fantastic power supply which clears 80 Plus Gold certification. While it isn’t quite as efficient as the groundbreaking Corsair AX1200 it is still an extremely capable product.

In regards to ripple, it is certainly higher than the Corsair AX1200 by a significant margin, but it falls well within tolerance guidelines and will pose no issues for an end user.

Aesthetics are very much a personal choice, but we would imagine no one would find this design offensive or ugly. The subdued colour scheme and attractive paint process heightens the appearance of a quality product.

The Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200w however earns massive brownie points for the extremely competitive pricing in the UK. Many stores are selling it for £190 inc vat, which is £40-£80 less than other 1200W+ units currently on the market. Sure, the ripple results aren’t up there with the best of the them, but in reality this makes very little difference to the end user.

Noise levels are great, with the unit only becoming audible at the higher end of the power scale, unrealistic conditions for most people long term. Even those handful of enthusiast users requiring more than 900W will be likely gaming at the time, so it would go unnoticed.

Kitguru says: At this price point it is a product that should be at the top of your high performance shortlist.

  1. Just ordered one from OCUK, needed a new PSU and was going to get the corsair 850W, but its only 35 more!

  2. Not often you see a 1200W PSU with gold cert for under 200 quid. winner for me.

  3. Very nice, that just hits the spot for me. was going to spend about 130 on a new one, but I seem to buy a new PSU every 2 years, so this one might last me 4. thats my logic. might be after christmas, but I think this is for me.

  4. I love the KitGuru PSU reviews, top job.

  5. I am glad you didnt nail it for the ripple results. its still well within specs and some sites are known to mark a product down on this.

    Products should only be marked down if the problem actually affects the user. this isn’t a problem. just a little higher ripple than leading products and well within the specs.

  6. Very impressed with this and the pricing especially. most of them are 250 here.

  7. Pricing is good as everyone says. its only 30 quid more than some 850W psus ive seen online. looks like a solid buy. design of the chassis looks very like the corsair products, or is no one else seeing that? the font etc.
