PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W PSU Review

Unlike any other unit we have ever seen, the Silencer Mk III 600W easily stands out of the crowd just because of its color. PC Power & Cooling sprayed the chassis with a glossy alpine white paint, making this the first white power supply we have ever seen.

Decorative black stickers with the series and company logo, as well as the power output of the unit, can be still found at both sides of the power supply.

The sticker with the unit's electrical specifications can be found at the top of the chassis. This position will only have it visible in cases with the power supply compartment located at the bottom.

The rear is entirely perforated to allow for the air pushed by the cooling fan to escape towards the outside of the case. The unit uses a standard AC power cable and there is a standard rocker on/off switch at the rear, as well as a tiny sticker with the unit’s model logo.

There is nothing particularly interesting about the front side of the chassis, save for the few connectors of the modular cables; and the fact that PC Power & Cooling actually released a modular power supply, of course. This is a partially modular unit design with some of the cables still hardwired to the power supply. The hardwired cables are sleeved. This unit offers the following number of connectors:

Native cables

24-pin ATX connector

4+4 pin EPS12V/ATX12V CPU connector

6+2 pin 12V PCIe connector

3 x SATA connectors

Modular cables

4+4 pin EPS12V/ATX12V CPU connector

6+2 pin 12V PCIe connector

6 x SATA connectors

3 x Molex connectors

1 x Floppy connector

It is interesting to note that although this power supply only has two PCIe cables, it also has two EPS12V CPU cables for dual CPU systems.
