The Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 850W ships in a beautiful purple and white box with a high resolution image of the product in the middle. The 80 Plus Gold Certification logo is highlighted on the front of the box, along with the 5 year warranty.
The box opens along the length, and there are two separate sections for the cables and accessories. The power supply itself is underneath a user manual and warranty card.
The bundle includes a fan controller, a manual, warranty card, fixing screws for power supply and fan controller and a pouch of modular cables.
The fan controller is a worthy addition to the bundle and will be useful for many people who buy the power supply. This is installed into a free 5.25 inch drive bay and is connected to the power supply with a four pin wire, which also feeds enough power for operation.
There are two controller pads to offer fan adjustment and the main switch can be toggled to manual mode to control three more fans inside the main computer chassis. You can even lower the speed of the fan inside the power supply, but we suggest you are careful because if you set it to the lowest speed it could trip the OVP (Over Temperature Protection).
Cooler Master supply a great looking bag to store the excess cables. As the Silent Pro Hybrid is a pure modular design this comes in very handy. Many of the cables are ‘flat’ which is ideal for routing in a space restricted chassis.
They supply the following cables:
- 1 x M / B 24 pins (650mm)
- 2x CPU 4 + 4 pins (700mm)
- 6x PCI-e 6+2 pins (600mm)
