PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W Power Supply Review

Cabling Arrangement




We were a bit confused by the cable layout for the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W unit. Very rarely will you find someone who needs dual ATX/EPS12V connectors in a 600W unit and more so for a sub-$100 unit. It would have been nice to see either another peripheral connector or perhaps even a third cable for PCI-E connections. As it sits, there are two ATX/EPS12V connectors, two 8-Pin PCI-E connectors, six SATA, three Molex and one FDD connectors.




PC Power & Cooling keeps it simple with single 12V rail.



A Look Inside




Opening up the unit, we find a very small unit. From the looks of things, PC Power & Cooling could have gone with a much smaller enclosure if they had wanted to.




There is a single Nippon Chemi-Con capacitor on the primary side.




Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors are found on the secondary side as well.




Here we find that the ADDA AD1212HB-A71GL fan is what provides the active cooling for the Silencer Mk III PSU.
