In The Box
When you first crack open the box of the Super Silencer 460 you are greeted with the PSU, mounting screws, the power cable, an instruction manual and a plastic bag containing a cable management kit. While most of the items are pretty standard fare when it comes to a new power supply, the last item mentioned was a little bit of a surprise. Let's take a little closer look at it:
Though simple in design, it is one of the only power supplies that I have encountered that took the time to include a means to handle the mass of cabling that will be fed throughout the case interior. Sure, some models have pretty mesh weaves surrounding the different cable masses, but this one even goes so far as to include an adhesive mount for the larger cables and some zip ties for the smaller ones. Sometimes it is the small things that make you sit up and take notice of a product.
As far as cable availability, the Super Silencer 460 does a good job with the exception of SATA connectivity. You'll find yourself with nine 4-pin Molex connectors and a pair of FDD connectors. Considering the 460 watt power rating (with a peak of 520 watts), you should find yourself with power to spare.
Also included in the wiring harness is the standard 20-pin ATX coupler, and both the 4-pin auxiliary and 4-pin supplemental power connections. This will allow you to power up your choice of AMD and Intel bases systems with no worries. There is even a 3-pin monitoring cable that can be hooked up to a motherboard fan header to monitor the onboard fan speeds.
Overall a good set of power options, but as I mentioned there is no SATA included. While not everyone has jumped onto the SATA bandwagon, this new type of hard drive has gained too much popularity to not be a consideration when this model was built. Even a Molex-SATA adapter would have sufficed, but you won't get it here.
