PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Power Supply Review


Introduction and Specs

pc power silencer 750

I have always been a proponant of spending as much as you possibly can on a power supply, because your system will only be as good as your power supply. If you are going to skimp on something, this can’t be it. With so many companies having entered the power supply market, it is important that each company do something with their product that makes them stand out from the rest. PC Power & Cooling has been around for quite some time (22 years says their website). During that time they have developed a reputation of being a very high quality power supply company. With that high quality usually comes a high price, and PC Power & Cooling has always been on the higher side of cost. Is it worth it? That is for you to decide, but read this review before you make your decision! Let’s look at the specs of the Silencer 750, and see if it is worth your hard earned dollars.
