Closer Look:

PC Power & Cooling makes very nice products and the overall finish on the Silencer Mk III 750W is excellent.  The package is tidy and the PSU has a nice white matte finish that prevents a bunch of fingerprints from marring the overall appearance of the unit.  The Silencer Mk III has stepped things up in terms of appearance over the original Silencer and it's a nice step up indeed.  The attention to detail is pretty impressive with this unit as it even comes shipped in a cloth bag instead of the traditional plastic bag.  PC Power & Cooling really wants to show off how special this PSU is and how much care you should take to keep it awesome.

One thing I really noticed with this PSU is how much branding there is on the unit.  PC Power & Cooling seems to be pretty proud overall.  Take a look at the close-up images below and you'll soon see what I mean.

I love the round thread-on modular connectors.  The truth is they aren't as handy as some other connectors, but they look cool and ensure that the cables stay connected securely.

As we analyze the specifications, I'll start by saying that I'm a fan of a 7 year warranty.  PC Power & Cooling knows how to stand behind their products and this is great news for consumers.

PC Power & Cooling claims the PSU can handle a 750W "Continuous Load" at 50°C.  If we do the math on this PSU we'll see that the 3.3v and 5v lines are rated a little conservative.  I added up a total output of 199.2W instead of the 120W rated output.  When we move up to the nice 62A +12v line, we find that it measures in at 774W.  The -12v line weighs in at 6W with the 5vsb line in at 15W.  In the end, they rate all the lines conservatively and don't include the -12v and 5Vsb into the overall output as do most companies.  That being said, the rails total 994.2W - which well exceeds the "Peak Output" rating of this PSU.
