DETAILS

The Silent Pro M2 720W is nicely finished in black, with white and grey logo lettering. A 135mm fan with 11 blades is employed behind a wire ring intake, and the exhaust vent is a typical hex pattern grill.

The PSU looks sturdy, fairly typical, with a 135mm 11-fin fan. Only the main ATX and 4+4 pin AUX12V cables are attached, and they are sleeved, unlike the flat data-style detachable cables.

On the output side, there are two outputs for PCIe power and five outputs for peripherals. As usual, the locking output connectors are keyed to prevent user error.

FEATURE & BRIEF Our comment
Copper-Aluminum Heat Sink
An expansive flat surface area for superior heat conductivity out to the aero-dynamic fins, therefore removing heat at an unprecedented rate.
OK
ErP Lot 6 ready!
Help system meet ErP Lot 6 2010 (< 1W at standby mode) with high efficiency +5Vsb circuitry.*
We've seen <1W in standby with lots of PSUs
Intel Compliant
Proficiently prepared to provide a stable power source and connectors for the latest ATX 12V v2.3 Intel processors.
OK.
Single 12V Power Rail
Tackling challenges from the most power-intensive peripherals head on, this solitary 12V power rail provides ample power and strong resistance to any overloading up to 58A.
OK
Modularized Cabling
Neatly arranged connectors on the rear plate connect to flat internal cabling improve installment facility while allowing for greater airflow through the PSU.
OK
Eco-friendly design: Erp Lot6 Ready!
A maximum 5Vsb current draw target in S5 off-mode of 0.1A for its motherboards and needed to ensure the system will consume < 1W in its off-mode
OK

The 40°C upper operating temperature limit (for rated performance) is 10°C lower than some others, but in actual use, it will not be a factor. The -12V line rating is a bit lower than most, but again, in actual use, it will not be significant. About the most significant aspect of the specs are the dimensions; 180mm makes it very deep for a PSU of this power rating and it could be a tight fit in cases that are not as deep as usual.
