PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750w CrossFire Edition ATX PSU

Conclusion

Conclusion

Having reviewed both the TC1KW and the S75EPS back in 2006 I was extremely interested to see what changes, if any, had been made to the PC Power & Cooling lineup since their partnership with OCZ.

First and foremost, the S75CF offers great voltage stability, with no rail fluctuating more than 0.11v and all rails remaining within their 'ideal' voltages. In addition to this the efficiency of the S75CF is one of the best we've seen here at Overclock3D, managing 83.43% at 443w load and a highly impressive 84.08% at 766w load. Topping off the package is some very sexy "Ferrari Red" paintwork designed for the ATI enthusiasts or indeed anybody who fancies a break away from the boring matt black units we are all too familiar with.

Priced at around £130, the S75CF is close to the top end of the price range for a ~750w unit, but as we always say "you get what you pay for". Unfortunately none of our recommended retailers stock the unit at present, but we hope for this to change in the near future.

So in summary, the PCP&C Silencer 750 CrossFire Edition is every bit as good as its predecessors offering not only voltage stability but efficiency, looks; and thanks to OCZ's global distribution networks, better value for money.

The Good
• Top performance with excellent voltage stability.
• Impressive 84% efficiency offers savings on those dreaded electricity bills.
• 'Crossfire' version comes complete with sexy Ferrari red paintwork.
• Single +12v rail ensures you'll never have problems with uneven load across multiple rails.
• Extremely silent at 0% and 50% load levels.

The Mediocre
• Noise levels at 100% load may not be acceptable to those who seek total silence.
• Price a little higher than most manufacturers, but the quality is worth every penny.

The Bad
• Nothing to report.

Mr. Smith
Thats my baby

Tell you what, it is the best psu I have ever owned. SO quiet (prob because even under full load my pc draws half the wattage this is capable of delivering).

Also glad it comes with 2 8pin pci-e for future cards.

I have heard a lot of good things about that PSU, I am thinking it would be a worthy replacement for my lesser unit. Not the CrossFire edition, though.
