For some enthusiasts, silence and power are closely intertwined yet diametrically opposed to each other. On a high-end overclocked system with a powerful CPU and GPU, it is a given that much heat will be produced so often times, fans run at a higher RPM to compensate for the temperature. On the other hand, systems which are designed for silence often run with undervolted components to minimize heat output and, if fans are to be used, they are all running at a much lower RPM. Manufacturers have been working to close the gap between performance and silence for quite some time now through efficiency and soon noise will not be an issue to consider at all.
For the time being, manufacturers such as PC Power and Cooling have interesting solutions that are paving the way toward this highly efficient, noiseless future. Their Silencer power supply line has been well-regarded since its first incarnation and now, with their 3rd generation offering, PC Power & Cooling has upped the efficiency and has made installation and usage much more convenient through modular cables on their latest Silencer MK III power supplies.
The PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 750W power supply has an 80 Plus gold efficiency rating with continuous output at 50C. The Silencer MK III 750W has a unique switch that allows users to choose between normal or silent mode, where the 140mm cooling fan runs idle whenever the load is under 50%. The modular cables on the Silencer MK III 750W power supply have heavy-duty chrome-finished metallic connectors that can be locked in place and use flat cables for easier cable management. Similar to the 1200W 80 Plus Platinum Silencer MK III, the 750W and 850W Silencer MK III are SuperFlower units and utilize high-quality Japanese capacitors with a warranty length of seven years.
