PC Power & Cooling have never really gone for the fancy retail packaging idea, instead sticking to very sturdy oversized cardboard boxes. It's no surprise either, considering PCP&C originally designed many of their units for enterprise servers rather than enthusiast PC's.
We can see from the front of the box that the 750w Silencer boasts a peak output of 825w, 83% efficiency, Quad PCI-E connectors and a 3yr warranty.
• 1x PCP&C 750w Silencer unit.
• 1x Standard power cord.
• 4x ATX case screws.
• 1x Warranty leaflet.
• 1x Unit test report.
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 rating of 84.56%.
Known for their 'no nonsense' approach to manufacturing PSU's, PCP&C have very rarely ventured outside the safe confines of a plain black powder coated finish. However, on relasing the S75CF it's clear that they wanted to do something special for ATI fans. Finished in what PCP&C describe as a "Ferrari Red" powder coat finish, the S75CF looks simply gorgeous (but then I'm a big fan of Red) and the black fan grill and screws contrast extremely well. For those of us who have a PC colour scheme not suited to this unit, PCP&C do offer the Silencer 750w Quad in a matt black finish at a slightly cheaper price.
As we can see from above, PCP&C have placed the specifications sticker at the top of the unit rather than at the side like most manufacturers. This has the advantage of not covering over the side of the power supply you are likely to see once it is installed in your case.
