PSU with a fan controller for itself? Why not just make a good and silent PSU instead of leting people forget to turn it up a bit and boil the caps? Good idea, bad application. For the rest, I am curious to see the OEM behind that.

I hope they are using the Enhance platforms they got as of late. Though they are not the best ones (cheaper GX series) they are better than the Seventeam ones of past.

CM really still has a long way to come before they earn any type of real credit in the PSU circles.

Judging by the internal pics given by CM, they are an Enhance platform. Might be the same as the Silverstone Strider Gold series.

Yeah they do look very similar, I just always like to have someone actually get inside to see.
Silverstones OEM's for the high end stuff are very good. I have 2 that have done flawlessly running for 2 years now.
If thats the case, CM might be on to something.

Would be nice for the 100% verification though,

The Silent Pro Hybrid has built-in safeguards that prevent overheating (even when a user turns the fan off). The PSU fan will remain off until the temperature goes above 50C or the load goes above 200W.

Direct Fan Control
With a power supply integrated 7V fan power port and included 5.25” drive bay fan controller module, the Silent Pro Hybrid Series removes the middleman by taking an unnecessary load off of the motherboard. This direct connection between power supply and fan controller provides the user with immediate on-the-fly control over the 135mm Super Silent Hydraulic Bearings power supply fan and up to 3 other system fans. The power and system fan speeds are adjusted independently via two dials. Users may determine the level of control they would like to wield by switching between automatic and manual modes for the power supply fan.
I thought that the fan controler where for the PC fans so that it doesn't load up the motherboard, or am I wrong?

It controls both the 3 system fans and the power supply fan itself.
