Lian Li's Silent Force 850W power supply unit Review

Posted on Thursday, November 13 2008 @ 14:37:03 CET by

At a $210 MSRP this PSU is really very expensive, especially if we compare it to the OCZ EliteXStream 800W PSU which can be bought for $139.99 or $109.99 after a mail-in rebate. The BFG ES Series is even less at $109.99 before rebate and $69.99 after, while the more powerful Corsair HX1000W is only a little more at $259.99 or $239.99 after rebate.

We're still waiting for Lian Li to bring the unit to the UK, but with the poor USD to GBP exchange rate giving UK Sterling less strength, this will cause higher prices anyway - if the Silent Force is already expensive in the States we can't see the end result being positive in an already overly competitive UK market. Lian Li will have a hard time convincing people it's better value when the efficiency is marginally lower than the cheaper and more established BFG and OCZ units, even if it is marginally quieter than them both. In terms of noise, we actually only think it's only second to the awesome and genuinely silent Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 650W that uses a fluid bearing fan.
