Scope of Delivery and Power Rating

A power cord for the American power grid, a user manual, some screws and a small sticker are within the scope of supply if you buy on of these products. If you live in Europe you'll get another mains cable of course. Those blue caps on the HDD connectors show the telephone number of the PC Power & Cooling support hot-line.

The 760W as well as the 960W version have a +12V single rail with a 62A rating for the smaller one and 74A for the larger model. Both deliver up to 150W on +3.3V and +5V with the same maximum current. Same for +5VSB. Note the input current difference.

    I thought PC Power & Cooling was phasing out these units in favor of their Mk II series units? The Mark II's have pretty poor build quality and power characteristics all around, according to JonnyGuru.

    I owned one of the original 750 Quad Silencers... great PSU up until the point it slagged the EPS12V connector on an ASUS Rampage II... no safety mechanism or anything else kicked in, the PSU just kept running and eventually melted the metal pins and plastic connector while I was in a game of TF2.

    The 760w and 910w PSUs are a new series of Silencer PSUs, not the older design that was phased out. The latest are Seasonic based while the Silencer II series is Sirfa based similar to OCZ branded models.

    Perhaps I am in the minority, but I will pretty much never consider any PS without modular cables.

    Many people like them but I prefer PSUs without modular connectors. To each his own.

    Honestly it depends on the case you are using. I was like you until I upgraded to a nice case that can hide any unused cables away from sight (and not block airflow). Then it''s just a minor nuisance when building the system. And it's one less point of connection failure.

    But honestly if the price was the same (or very close.....within 5%) I'd probably still go modular like you.

    Currently using a Lian-Li PC-B10; a very nice case, I think. I'm also the kind of guy who shortens or extends then re-sleeves cabling so I can route and hide then exactly how I want. What a nerd! :)

    I have a 910W Silencer that has been rocking for 2-3 years. Currently running 8 SATA Devices and a GTX 295 along with a 1090T X6 @ 4Ghz which runs 24/7. No problems what so ever. I think I paid $190 for mine back then. Great investment.
