Unboxing the power supply
Cooler Master supplies the Silent Pro M2 in a white cardboard box, not unnaturally large for the packaging of a high output power supply. The artwork on the front side of the box is fancy, with blue lighting and abstract shapes being formed behind the logo of the series.
The white rear of the box houses two charts, one for the efficiency and one for the fan speed against the load, plus a short list of the unit’s most important features in several languages.
The list of the items bundled with the Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500W unit is very, very short. The purchaser of this power supply will only receive the necessary A/C power cable, four black mounting screws, a warranty card, a basic manual and the modular cables of the unit. Make sure not to lose the supplied A/C power cable or not to buy a unit from a region different than yours, as this power supply does not use a typical C14 IEC cable but a C20 instead and finding a replacement could prove to be a challenge. Unfortunately, there are no cable straps or other extra items, not even simple cable ties.
The modular cables supplied with the Silent Pro M2 1500W unit are all-black, “flat” type cables. Unlike other manufacturers, this includes the PCI Express and CPU 4+4 pin cables as well; unfortunately however, those hardwired on the unit are typical cables, colored and sleeved.
