There are quite a few extensive technical reviews of real world measured performance on this power supply series. This power supply is top tier, no question. Have this item finally running my Core i5 P67 system; looks fabulous as well as stunning. Runs 50 Celsius/full rated power continuously. Ran Furmark and Prime95 overnight and this power supply held up just fine. Tested some voltages through molex cables on full load and tested within spec.

Here comes my gripes. Cable length with main connectors are lacking. Used to have an Enermax Liberty 500w and the cable length was plenty long and usable as opposed to this one. The Enermax also came with great cable options, more molex connects on different cables. PC P&C MK III Cable length on the main connectors have made my cable management more difficult and as a note to OCZ who owns PC P&C, please make your main and CPU connectors a good 30% longer or so and please include more molex connectors, a shame this has not been done for an item at this MSRP ( please take note of Enermax Liberty 500w).

Bottom line: Item has been technically and extensively tested to perform top tier, top of the heap, king of the hill. Item looks stunningly beautiful. Though, main cable length is disappointing and somewhat lacking hence only four stars. Only has 3 molex connectors on one cable hence only four stars. These gripes make cable management difficult.
Still highly recommended to buy it though.

I have their 1st & 2nd Gen of the 750W Silencer PSU's, both are still running strong to this day, none of the voltage readings ever dipped below standard and never fluctuate like most PSU's out there even with the big names.

If you have the proper equipments, you will be able to tell that PC Power & Cooling actually under-rate their PSU's maximum output, this shows quality, confidence, and honesty. The 750W Silencer has about 970W Peak power, but only rated at 750W. It was because of this, I had to get the latest Silencer PSU from them when I build a new rig. I was actually worried about their quality since the acquisition by OCZ, because OCZ released some overrated big power modular multi-rail PSU's that crumble under stress (even though they will never admit it), but it turned out PC Power & Cooling kept the single-rail design which is a huge deal. Read JohnnyGuru's explanation on Single 12V Rail vs Multiple 12V Rails. A quality single 12V Rail PSU with solid design is the way to go. Fact remains as I've tried some big power multi-rail PSU's from big names that received good reviews, and none of them could stand under stress (Crossfire/SLi + massive overclocks in intensive gaming environment), I was met with fluctuations/under voltage/crashes/shut-down's. Finally I decided to just drop the dough and go with PC Power & Cooling. And boy am I glad.

Now maintaining a stable overclock of 4.7GHz on the CPU, 2400MHz on the RAM, and 1045MHz/1450MHz on the video card.

Great PSU, with one warning: if you have a micro ATX case, you may have trouble getting everything to fit. I have a Thermaltake LanParty (one of the original ones from around 2005 or so), and it's a great mATX case, but this PSU was a bear to install. The PSU is a little on the long side, and the modular connectors are stiff at the ends, so the PSU and the cables were bumping into my BD-R drives. It took about 20-30 minutes just to get the PSU seated.

But after that, it works like a dream! So yeah, awesome, but could cause headaches for those of you who like the small cases. Measure first if you're building from scratch, and add 25-30mm to the length to account for the modular cable ends.

I have used PC Power and Cooling power supplies for over 20 years and have consistently been impressed with their stability, reliability and customer service. This power supply appears to follow the same standards of their previous models and has some noteworthy features that make it standout from the competition. The most significant is the semi-modular design which retains hard-wired connections for the important items---such as motherboard, CPU (dual connectors) and video. The modular jacks are unique in that they use a variant of the balanced jack connector for pro-audio use which includes a screw-down hold down nut. This setup provides a very secure connection for the modular cabling---unlike the majority of the competition that simply uses snap-on Molex type connectors for highly stressed and possibly high current connections. If you are looking for a premium power supply for your new computer - look no further than the PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III...

I did a lot of research online for power supply. I chose it because the review of this product is perfect. I realized the price was slightly higher than other ones, but it is totally worth it. Silent and steady, it can support your system with at least two GTX 680 at the same time.
