[softpedia] Cooler Master Brings More than a PSU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
The noise level at less than 16 dBA? I need one for the rig in my library.

Quote:
Almost all computer enthusiasts have heard of the Cooler Master brand, as it is well known for offering high performance products including cooling solutions, memory and PC power supplies. All products coming from this company have been used in some of the most powerful gaming and high-end desktop systems worldwide. This only makes its newest power supply offer all the more interesting.

Cooler Master has released today its latest Silent Pro Series power supply, which brings forward a well developed product featuring a superior thermal solution, a highly efficient circuit design and value-added accessories. The Silent Pro Series, as the name also implies, has been developed to provide a new standard in silent computing with the help of its "silent formula" design which sets the noise level at less than 16 dBA.

The highly efficient circuit design aims to reduce the overall heat generated by the power supply, while at the same time cutting down on the power lost during the energy conversion process. Practically, Cooler Master claims that its new product can deliver a power efficiency level of 85% or even more, which should be considered a pretty good ratio for any high-end desktop computer. To make the users even more convinced of the product's capability in terms of energy efficiency, the Silent Pro Series power supplies come with 80 Plus certification and meet Energy Star, Blue Anger and RoHS requirements.

Another significant feature of the Silent Pro Series is its thermal solution, which draws heat away from hot areas of the PCB to a series of copper plates that conduct heat almost twice as well as traditional aluminum. The heat is then transferred to a series of aluminum heat sinks that can dissipate it with maximum efficiency thanks to a fin design. After this, the heat is blown away by a large 135mm fan that can deliver 1.5 times better airflow than traditional 120mm solutions.

No word yet on pricing and availability, but interested users should check out the manufacturer's official website for further details.

cooler master sure has been doing a lot for their PSU lineup lately:

Cooler Master Announces First 80 Plus Silver PSU

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/psu-80plus,5515.html

Coolermaster is the first mainstream PSU manufacturer to offer a product, which reaches 88% efficiency and hence falls into the 80plus Silver category.

While many users are familiar with the 80plus logo, there are actually four different flavors. 80plus is reached once efficiency remains at 80% of higher at 20%, 50% and 100% power load. 80plus Bronze requires 82%, 85% and 82" efficiency at the same 20%, 50% and 100%. The 80plus Silver standard, as reached by Coolermaster’s new UCP 900W, has to maintain 85%, 88%, 85% and 80plus Gold can only be reached at 87%, 90% and 87% power efficiency. No power supply unit has ever reached this yet.

Superb customer service too, (with a caveat):
I broke one of my HDD "caddy"s on my CM690, and tried to order one through their online support "form" - which has a terrible format- No Joy there; So I sent them an e-mail, mildy complaining about shoddy CS!
I promptly received an apologetic and "how may we assist you today" type reply; which, obviously, I presumed was "auto-generated!
Two days later I get a FedEx Express package with 3 hard drive caddies and a t-shirt

On that basis I'd highly recommend any of their products ;p (but, only a 5-yr warranty on the PSU??; c'mon guys- that kinda quality product- you should back it for Lifetime)

My CM power supply has been rock solid every since I got it 2 years ago. Not a hitch.

Lins... what do you do for a living that you can afford a house with a library AND spending 9000 hours a day on OCN?

Is there some place one can exchange rep for monies?
