PC Power & Cooling are on the tip of every computer enthusiasts tongue when it comes to power supplies. Delivering nothing but stable power for the most power hungry machines since their launch back in 1986, their range of modern units such as the Silencer and Turbo-Cool have won many awards.
I recently had the pleasure of taking the Turbo-Cool 1kw unit for a test drive, and was thoroughly impressed with the stability of its voltages that remain unbeaten to date. The only gripe I had with the unit was it's high noise levels under load - something which I'm hoping PCP&C have alliveated in the Silencer 750w, which is on the OC3D test bed today.
PCP&C have always liked to keep it plain and simple, packaging their units inside plain cardboard boxes printed with some basic specifications. This makes perfect sense as most PCP&C units are highly unlikely to make their way onto retailers shelves, and are instead either sold through PCP&C's website or one of their global distributors.
We can see from the front of the box that the 750w Silencer boasts a peak output of 825w, 83% efficiency, 60 amps on the +12v rails and a metallic copper finish - very nice.
Removing the upper layer of cardboard reveals the Silencer unit in all of its glory. The unit is protected by a large plastic bag which should prevent any scratches or other marks from appearing on its funky copper paintjob.

The included test report sheet contains all of results obtained from the testing of the power supply at the PCP&C factory. Just browsing over the page we can see some very impressive results from the rails under load and an efficiency of 83.02%.
