There is one top fan; an Adda 120mm ball bearing fan that is thermally controlled. The power supply stays fairly cool, even at a 500 Watt stress test the PSU was just lukewarm. We wonder though why they didn't use a bigger or more silent fan, at load the fan becomes noisy. BTW did opened up the PSU and we are 99% sure that this PSU is built by Seasonic.
The PSU has a standard ATX design, it'll fit in any chassis, its dimensions are: 150 x 160 x 86mm (W x L x H). The product is rated at a MTBF of 100,000 Hours. Divide it by 24 hours and 365 days a year and that would be 11.5 years.
When it comes to wiring we feel that there's enough connectors for a 600W model.
M/B Connectors: 1 x 20+4-pin ATX - 1 x 4+4-pin CPU
Video Connectors: 2 x 6+2-Pin PCI-E
Drive Connectors: 3 x Peripheral - 6 x 5-pin SATA - 1 x Floppy
The ATX motherboard connector reached to 55CM, the Molex and SATA power cables to 70 CM, the 8-pin CPU ATX power connector is 60 cm and the PCIE graphics connectors reach 60 cm. Graphics card wise you get to play with two 6+2 Pin PCie connectors. We see sleeved cabling with dark colored connectors.

The new Silencer Mk III series are all about being quiet, being awesome and very efficient and again, the PSU as tested today carries a Platinum certification. The new PSU also improved on the audibility front as it comes with a switch, enabled it and up-to 600 Watt (!) the fan will remain disabled and at that load your PSU merely lukewarm. The 1200W PSU is massive in performance, the one massive 99.5A 12-volts says it all really. Excellent for multi-GPU solutions and hardcore overclockers. The PSU is engineered with merely premium components, including Japanese 105°C capacitors and heavy-duty protection circuitries.
PC Power and Cooling Silencer MkII 750W PSU review The new model PC Power & Cooling power supply is their Silencer Mk II series of PSU's. It's the 'bloke' PSU series again with a simple design, and hey -- nothing is modular so the PSU certainly is a squid inside your system with all the tentacles (wires), but yeah .. lots of you don't really care about cable management, they just want the best of the best and sure ...as you'll learn you can't really complain about the essence that is the Mk II Silence 750W power supply.
