As is always the case with PC Power & Cooling power supplies, the unit is well packed and protected during shipping.

As with all of the Silencer Mk III units, the new 850W is pure white with the I/O specification label on the top.

Both sides feature the same logo with the opposite side inverted in case it is installed in the bottom of a case.

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. As we mentioned in the 1200W review, the switch isn't labeled in any way.

Moving to the front, we find the same metallic modular connectors that were seen with the 1200W model. All the connectors come with dust covers to keep them clean and dust free until needed.

In order to keep things quiet, the Silencer Mk III 850W utilizes a 140mm fan on the bottom with a black wire grill.

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, mounting screws, zip ties and AC input cord.
