PC Power & Cooling Silencer 500W tested

Posted on Tuesday, June 24 2008 @ 05:30:13 CEST by

AnandTech published a review of the new PC Power & Cooling Silencer 500W power supply from OCZ.
The 3.3V and 5V rails are rated somewhat lower than we're used to, but there's nothing to worry about since modern systems don't place a huge load on these rails anymore. The 12V rail is rated at 35A, which means you can pull up to 420W. The UL number shows PC Power & Cooling; this is no surprise since even though this unit is not made by PCP&C, the company has been around long enough to have their own registration with UL. New to the label is the "Part of the OCZ Technology Group" note below the PCP&C name, one of several outward changes since the acquisition last year.
The reviewer says the performance and build quality is quite good but he's disappointed by the noise levels, once you get above a load of 200W the noise levels are quite loud. The efficiency reaches up to 86% with 230VAC and the price is pretty reasonable, $90 and only 60EUR in Europe.
