The Silencer MkIII balances the needs of enthusiasts and professionals by combining a powerful single +12V rail and premium grade capacitors.
But the Silencers secret weapon is its ultra quite operation. The Mk III sports a new Dual Thermal Control System, a sophisticated operation that allows the PSU to switch between normal and silent mode seamlessly. Backed with PC Power’s complete confidence in reliability with an industry-leading 7 year warranty, this PSU offers ultimate peace of mind.
Awards & Reviews
CPU: Computer Power User
As you can further deduce from the power supply’s name, the Silencer MkIII 1200W speaks softly but carries a 1,200-watt stick. (Those 1,200 watts have been subjected to a torturous 50 degrees Celsius, too, so the power supply is more than capable of dealing with the rigors of enthusiast use.) Thanks to FirePower’s Dual Thermal Control System, the Silencer MkIII is able to instantly switch from silent to normal mode as loads dictate. The PSU’s 140mm double ball-bearing fan can also adjust its speed according to load and temperature, so this power supply will never be louder than it needs to be.
Even at full blast it's a quiet fan, I think this is the quietest PSU I have ever tested, even comparing it at 50c and 1200w to others at cold ambient and full load.
