Hell Freezes Over and PC Power & Cooling Unveils Its First Modular Power Supply

Harold Camping totally blew it when he calculated the world would end in October (and every earlier date as well), but had he predicted this would be the year PC Power & Cooling finally launched a modular power supply, he would have looked like a genius. PCP&P, as many of you are familiar with, takes a no-nonsense approach to PSU design, and maintained that philosophy even when it was acquired by OCZ. The new Silencer Mk III is the company's first ever modular PSU, and purportedly just as reliable as any other unit sporting a PCP&P label.

"PC Power and Cooling has always catered to those clients that are looking for both performance and reliability from their power management solutions and the Silencer Mk III PSU continues that tradition and incorporates new features such as a modular cable design," said Steve Lee, Senior Vice President of Power Management at OCZ Technology Group. "This is the first modular PC Power PSU and we spent extra time and resources to make sure we got it right by combining a highly efficient core with Japanese capacitors, a whisper quiet 120mm fan, and the flexibility of modular cabling, all to create the best Silencer yet, and we are releasing this exciting new series in a range of models up to 600W and pricing them competitively, making the Silencer Mk III PSU’s the ideal blend of performance, features, and overall value for customers."

One thing PCP&P didn't deviate from is utilizing a powerful single +12V rail instead of spreading the amps over multiple +12V rails. The Silencer Mk III is 80 Plus Bronze certified, boasts heavy-duty protection circuitries, and regulates noise and ripple, PCP&P says.

OCZ didn't mention any specific pricing info, saying only that the Silencer Mk III will be available in 400W, 500W, and 600W models, each with a 5-yaer warranty.
