This review is from: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Hybrid (RS-D00-SPHA-D3) 1300W ATX 12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Full Modular Individual Active PFC Power Supply w/Free Fan Controller and 10 Years Warranty
Pros: uh finish on it looks pretty cool. when it works the 12v rail is very strong with very low ripple and solid 12.121v
Cons: Well where to start... the 24 pin cable was not sleeved as advertised. The warranty is NOT TEN YEARS i don't know why it says it on the box, in the book, and on this site. Warranty is half that... the fan controller i got is missing the switch in the middle... but eh i didn't have room for it anyway.
So after getting the run around with live tech support i chalked it up to outdated info on newegg, so i hooked it up in my system and noticed when ever it would turn on it would make a very loud clicking sound. I passed it off for a big solid state relay or something of the sort... Oh boy was i wrong! Worked great for about 4 months and when i decided to fire up my computer today i was greeted with quite a show. That clicking sound was actually sparks! It started to make a fizzle sound when all of a sudden it decided to go Chinese new year on me in a shower of sparks, smoke and fire! Granted my computer is a bit power hungry I doubt I ran this thing past 70% of it's "Rated" power.
Awaiting RMA info from coolermaster.. or as ill call it my "newyearmaster" pfffff
