Packaging & Appearance

When it comes to box graphics, most manufacturers tend to use some thing along the lines of fast cars or sniper rifles to symbolise performance and power. Silver Power on the other hand have opted for an angry Gorilla! Sure Gorilla's are powerful, and in that sense it does get the message across that the PSU means (no monkey) business. But they're not exactly the nicest of creatures to look at, and I'm sure that Silver Power could have come up with something a little more inventive based around their name.

Inside the box is a strictly no frills affair with only the required accessories to get you up and running plus all of the modular cables inside a separate canvas drawstring bag. The PSU its self has been given only minimal protection from courier damage by being wrapped in bubblewrap. Our sample arrived in perfect condition, but your mileage may vary depending on what outer packaging is used by online retailers.

The overall appearance of the PSU is also on the basic side with Silver Power opting for a plain matte black finish along with a silver wire grill covering a 120mm fan (how old school!). Unfortunately Mr Angry Gorilla isn't just limited to appearances on the packaging, but also on the fan grill badge as well.

Moving round to the sides and rear there really is very little to speak about again....other than Mr Angry Gorilla. I'm beginning to wonder if people may avoid purchasing this PSU purely because they don't want to have the crap frightened out of them whenever they peer inside their windowed PC case.

Here's where it gets a little interesting. Round the front of the unit is a total of six modular connectors accompanied by a bundle of hard-wired connectors. Going from left to right, the first two modular connectors are for PCI-e power while the remaining four are for Molex/SATA. Interestingly Silver Power have decided not to colour code the connectors, instead keeping everything in stealthy black.

Let's move on to the next page now and take a closer look at the modular interface and cables.

If there was a PSU to read from page to page its this one. Like a super hero in a comic read as the SP-SS750M fights it out with the big bad HX750w...... But does it win?
