@Shub - I'm sorry if I offended you, but the Cooler Master units below the Silent Pro Gold aren't good units. Whether it's price or performance, they just fail. If a PSU here on OCN isn't recommended, I would not buy it. This means the Cooler Master GX, Silent Pro, Elite Power, eXtreme Power and Real Power units are cheaply made, and generally bad units. You might get lucky with one of them, but as I said: They aren't recommended here,
so I would never touch one.

And where are you getting the idea that those units are bad? smile.gif Admittedly the GX series aren't great (although the updated versions are acceptable), the Elite series are mediocre, and the EPP series are crap. But the Silent Pro M and Gold units are in an entirely different league. I don't know what reviews you've seen that say they're bad since I can't find any from the good review sites.

That's where you're mistaken -- you're not offending me since I've ever owned one of those, but it's important to be fair. If there's a reason for the Silent Pro M units not to be on the recommended list, I don't know it, but there are many reasons why that may be -- for example you'll note the Corsair HX units are not on the recommended list either, yet they're excellent, does that mean you wouldn't buy one given the opportunity? If so, you'd be missing out.

The fact is that Cooler Master Silent Pro M500, 600 and 700 are good, and the 850 and 1000 units aren't so bad themselves. Note that the 500, 600 and 700W are made by Enhance, and the 850 and 1000 are made by FSP. They are however all overpriced (in the US at least). They're also group regulated units but this isn't a huge deal in the grand scheme of things.

Reviews of the M600 speak for themselves:

A used HX520 would be a good alternative as it has modular cables. I've had mine running for over 5 years on a variety of stock\overclocked systems.

I'll keep a lookout - modular looks like my cup of tea. Though have to be careful with PSU length.

It's a little longer than the CX but not by much.

Edit: Just to clarify, the wattage figure I quoted was with a Geforce GTX560.

The Silent Pro Golds are not bad, their only problem is with ripple (it's still in spec, but just high)... And some of the Real Power Pro/Real Power M/Silent Pro units are also decent.

If you're referring to Tator Tots "recommended" list, he only puts units on there that are currently in production. There are loads and loads of units that are good (and not on his list), but EOL.

There's websites devoted to tst anything and everything. The thread in this section that points to various reviews can help a lot. And like I said the M600 is in your street concerning power, is semi modular and has 2 links to tests and both give it a 9 out of 10.
