PC Power & Cooling 750w Silencer S75EPS PSU
Published: 25th September 2006 | Source: PCP&C | Price: |Conclusion
The PCP&C Silencer 750w is an amazing unit. Following in the footsteps of PCP&C's highly regarded Turbo-Cool range, the Silencer managed to breeze through our tests without even flinching. Rail stability was excellent, exhibiting little or no fluctuation what so ever - something we hardly ever see when placing PSU's on the OC3D test bed.
PCP&C have also managed to greatly improve the efficiency of the Silencer 750w over some of their previous units as you can see from the 82.9% result calculated by our tests. PCP&C have clearly proven that it is possible to have masses of stable power without breaking into a sweat when the electricity bill arrives.
The only real gripe that I have with this unit is its noise levels at full load. I was really hoping that the Silencer would be whisper quiet regardless of the load, but to expect this of a unit cooled by an 80mm fan is slighty unrealistic. It would be nice if PCP&C could reconsider the fan chosen for the S75EPS, as there are many fans available with better specifications than the ADDA. Maybe then I could award this unit the 100% it is so close to deserving.
The PCP&C Silencer 750w is in limited supply here in the UK, but thankfully can be purchased over at Extreme Prometeia for a reasonable £146.
