Reviews about the Silencer Mk III 500W

"The PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKIII is a very solid and affordable power supply. At only half the cost of the Seasonic X-560 it offers the best value for money out of all the power supplies that we tested today. Next to semi modular cable managements it also has two 6+2 PCI-Express and a comprehensive 5 year warranty. "

"The PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKIII is a very solid and affordable power supply. At only half the cost of the Seasonic X-560 it offers the best value for money out of all the power supplies that we tested today. Next to semi modular cable managements it also has two 6+2 PCI-Express and a comprehensive 5 year warranty. In our opinion this is the best power supply within 630–800W range. "
"The modular PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK3 500W PSU immediately draws the attention to itself through its white and artistic design. A lot of care has been put into this product by using of high quality components (suitable for operation up to 50 ° C) which result in a good efficiency with well over 85%. The Silencer MK3 500W is available at a very reasonable price. We can therefore recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an affordable midrange power supply. It is more than sufficient for using a graphics card and an additional PCIe component. "

"The 500W PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III is a perfect modular midrange power supply with reasonable price-performance ratio. Even at full load the 120mm fan is barely noticeable, doing justice to its name. It is only in the unlikely event of an overload that a slight noise might be heard. During our benchmarks the PC Power and Cooling Silence MK III displayed stable results that were well within the norms. Because of the positive impact that it left behind we give our Value and Silver award to this power supply. "

Technic 3D (Germany)
"The Silencer MK3 III is a good power supply. Externally, the PSU scores with its white paint, as white power supplies are quite rare. There are plenty of cables that have a nice length, and the modular cabling system ensures an efficient and convenient installation. We would also like to note that The Silencer MK III is made with high-quality components such as the primary capacitor. Because of its 80+ Bronze certification the Silencer MK III is more than capable of competing in its range on efficiency. The reasonable price and features make it earn our Gold award. "

Louis Hirschmann (Germany)
"After a few hours on the test bench, the verdict: the Silencer MK III is an excellent power supply. Electromagnetic interference is very low, and efficiency is perfectly in tune with the standards of the 80+ Bronze certification. With ripple measurements of 7.5 mV, 3.5 mV and 1.5 mV on +12/+5/+3.3V track, the Silencer Mk III has nothing to envy from the likes of Corsair or Seasonic. With the launch of the PC Power and Cooling MK III Silencer in Europe OCZ is well on its track."
