PC Power & Cooling is a company that has a long lasting name and reputation in the business of power supplies. Their reputation is based on a simple fact: they build high-quality power supplies that last.
They do not care about modability, sheer looks, cable management or bling fans. No Sir, PC Power & Cooling is all about the essence of a high quality power supply. Nothing more. So if we were to stereotype them with one word, then it has to be "quality".
Now, in the world of power supplies a lot has changed over the years. Everybody is selling the darn things and the funny thing is, there are probably less than ten real power supply manufacturers on this globe. Saturated is what this market is, but that's not exactly a negative thing though. The demand for power supplies versus the numerous brands available these days had a positive effect: seen overall, the quality of power supplies have become much much better. Next to that you got more options and features as well. Last but not least, a hip thing these days is of course the efficiency of the power supply.
PC Power and cooling creates the best of the best among power supplies, they however keep their design simple. No multiple 12 Volts rails, no Sir, it all comes from one single rail, apparently more robust and efficient. Cable management ? Ehm, no Sir, all cables are connected as modability would have an effect on overall efficiency here as well.
With a PC power and Cooling power supply, you go back to basics, yet with build quality that is unprecedented. Recently PC P&C released their new Silencer 910W model. A near kilowatt power supply with an efficiency that is bloody fantastic at roughly 88%. Anyone remember the dull grey power supplies from 3-4 years ago? these were ~70% efficient. So if you plan something really high-end that sucks up a lot of power, a PSU like shown today will actually help you save energy and thus reduce your energy bill. What's not to like, eh?
Let's head on over to the next page where we'll startup this review.

PC Power & Cooling MK III Silencer 1200 review
We review the PC Power and Cooling MK III Silencer 1200 Watt review from OCZ technology. 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.
