OC3D Review: PC Power & Cooling Silencer 910W ATX PSU

"PCP&C have always been an enthusiasts favourite. But does their latest 910W model have what it takes to keep up with the competition?"

I refuse to stick a PSU in my build that does not take advantage of a 120mm fan as a minimum. 80mm is ridiculous. Noise is at a premium and with so many PSU's catching up (and indeed bettering) the PCP&C insternals, I cannot see why anyone would plump for one of these other than fanboys.

Gr8 review m8.

Cheers guys.

I think the main problem is that PCP&C are trying to enter a market their PSU's were never originally designed for. Yet at the same time they won't let go of their morals surrounding 80mm / hard-wired design because it's what has always worked best for the server market.

EDIT: Ah, ignore that, the problem wasn't related.

Great review. Some crazyness on the voltage qualities despite the large power they can supply.

For the cash, and in particular the name, I'd expect more from them.

I kinda feel these are the same builds as the 500w classic ones they do, only stretched, perhaps this is their max.

Amazing ... in a disbelieving style. It's like Rolls Royce producing a 6k shopping car, or Ferrari producing a supercar that only does 75mph.

Corsair seem to be dominating the market right now. Although the Coolermaster M1000 is still fighting fit.

PCP&P I am outstandingly disappointed.

Nice review mate,

As W3bbo pointed out, why are they still making PSU's with 80mm fans!! its shocking really. Wonder if they will get back to you re: the power issues.

I bought this PC Power&Cooling and I am very happy with this 910W PSU , I plan to swap the ball bearing fan with sleeve bearing fan lubricated ( by myself ) with a creamy Zirconium grease , even a 80mm sleeve bearing fan ( of good quality ) at low RPM speed is inaudible , and the hardware inside my PC only need 150W at full load , therefore inside my case this PSU will be running all the time fresh and cool and extreme silent at very low load

I am here in Europe with 220Volts electricity, therefore the efficiency of this 80+ Silver PSU will be even more higher

Update , my lovely PC Power & Cooling 910W fanless installed in my 90degrees rotated CM590 case

the two 140mm exhaust fans installed on the roof of the case will suck air through every hole/grill at the bottom of my case ,therefore the I can keep the PSU fanless
