Cooler Master Debuts Updated Silent Pro Hybrid 1300W Power Supply

Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, is proud to announce that the world's first in power supply technologies, the high end Silent Pro Hybrid 1300 W, has now been improved to offer even more value and quality.

Extended Warranty

Cooler Master carefully selects high quality and durable components to build its Silent Pro Hybrid. Showing that we fully stand by this, the warranty has been doubled to provide a full 10 years of coverage from date of purchase for the updated Silent Pro Hybrid 1300 W in the United States. Ensuring that all of these owners can partake in this new addition, the warranty extension also applies retroactively to those Silent Pro Hybrids that were purchased prior to this announcement.


Premium Individually Sleeved Cables

Cooler Master has a reputation as a company that keeps an open and accessible presence across popular enthusiast forums. This is where fans, and critics, can provide their input. Cooler Master listens and strives to help find a mutually beneficial solution to each issue. Answering one of these calls, the improved Silent Pro Hybrid 1300W power supply model will include a full set of premium individually sleeved modular cables that will add that extra touch of professionalism to an otherwise flawless build.

About Silent Pro Hybrid Series

Silent Pro Hybrid Series includes the features that many enthusiasts demand such as full control over cable management with fully modular cables, over 90% efficiency with 80Plus Gold Certification, noise-free operation, and other value-added features that ensure these users get the most out of their purchase.

Direct Fan Control

With a power supply integrated 7V fan power port and included 5.25" drive bay fan controller module, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series removes the middleman by taking an unnecessary load off of the motherboard. This direct connection between power supply and fan controller provides the user with immediate on-the-fly control over the 135 mm Super Silent Hydraulic Bearings power supply fan and up to 3 other system fans. The power and system fan speeds are adjusted independently via two dials. Users may determine the level of control they would like to wield by switching between automatic and manual modes for the power supply fan.

Noise-free Operation

The first to offer a "fanless" mode, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series eliminates unneeded fan noise. The power supply fan can be completed turned off to essentially operate as if it were fanless. This mode persists until loads become greater than 200 W. At this point, a safe mode will activate the fan and cool according to the level of the load.

Price and Availability

The Silent Pro Hybrid Series will come in 850 W, 1050 W, and 1300 W models. The updated 1300 W model will be available in September, 2012.

Wait a min whats the point of the 5.25 fan controller? I'd rather buy one from a brand I like, and use that. Ya it allows ya to control the PSU fan, but whats the damn point! Make it passive and the fan will hardly ever come on.

How the hell do you expect them to make a 1300 WATT PSU passive?!? :shadedshu



The first 300-500 watt might be doable, but certainly nothing more above that. :slap:

Assuming 90% efficiency, a 1300W psu will have to dissipate 144W of heat just for doing the power conversion.

The second graph shows that the fan starts up at 200W. So it is semi-passive.

Enhance. Which you can tell from the size and shape of the heatsinks, as seen in this picture:

Sure would be nice if they sent out the sleeved cables to current owners. I'm currently rocking a SPH 850w. The full modular is nice and I haven't had not one power issue what so ever given its a pre-release so I can't say anything about the drive bay fan controller since that didn't come with it. Would like to see how it handles though. At least the warranty gets extended even though not sure in my case lol.
