After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

  • Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200W Power Supply Review



    When building up a gaming or enthusiast system your time and money is often concentrated on making sure you get the most powerful video card and processor you can afford.  This is natural considering those two items usually dictate performance.  The thing many people forget is that performance cannot be realized unless you have enough power to drive everything, which means you need a quality PSU.

    In this review we will be looking at the latest PSU from Cooler Master called the Silent Pro Gold 1200W.  The Silent Pro Gold series is a new line of high performance power supplies designed to address the demanding nature of gaming and overclocking.  They do this by combining patented technologies such as Heat Transfer Technology (HTT), Hyper Path, and Hybrid Transformers with high power efficiency at over 90% under load.
