Inside the Box

Opening the box we find things seem to be well packed. Thick foam surrounds the power supply on all sides.

The top features the I/O specification label as well as the serial number. The unit is pure white so make sure your hands are clean when handling the unit or fingerprints are sure to show up after installing it.

Both sides feature the same logo, just inverted on the opposite side.

The back is standard with the honeycomb venting as well as the AC input and on/off rocker switch. The switch below is for selecting the fan mode that we spoke about earlier. The only complaint we have about it is that it isn't labeled in any way.

On the front of the Silencer Mk III 1200W, we find the modular connectors with covers on them. There are four for peripheral cables and four for PCI-E cables. Rather than snapping in place with plastic connectors, PC Power & Cooling chose metal connectors that screw on tightly. It is said that is said to provide better and more stable electrical connectivity than regular plastic modular plugs.

All modular cables are flat which should provide for easier routing and increased airflow within the case.

Also included with the power supply is the user manual, warranty card, mounting screws, zip ties, and AC input cord.
