Little has changed with the packaging for the Silencer Mk III 1200W power supply, but we do see updated 80 PLUS and warranty logos on the front.

Turning things around, we find a bit more information as well as a full color shot of the power supply. Aside from the specifications we have already covered, the box also lists "Dual thermal control system: Normal Mode and Silent Mode operation." We'll get into that in the next picture.

The other half of the back explains more about the dual thermal control system. You can set the fan mode to Silent Mode or Normal Mode. Normal mode ensures that the fan is always running and thermally controlled. Silent mode forces the fan off until the unit reaches 50% load at which it then becomes thermally controlled. This is made easy by the selector switch on the back of the power supply.

Both top and bottom mimic the front of the box.

While one side of the box is rather bland, the other does contain a great list of cables and their length.
