This is a 610 W power supply without any fancy feature like modular cabling system or 120 mm fan, but providing all the specs a regular user needs nowadays: active PFC, high efficiency (83% nominal, peaking 85.4% if you pull 244 W from it), two power connectors for video cards, a nominal power high enough to feed both mainstream and high-end video cards and what is more important: this power supply can truly deliver 610 W of power under 45° C.
Another highlight of this product is its warranty (five years, which is far more than most manufacturers give).
The only weak point we can think of is its price, only because OCZ StealthXStream 600 W is cheaper. This model from OCZ, however, has less peripheral power connectors available (only three SATA and five standard peripheral power connectors), so you should check first whether this will be a problem for you or not.
We, however, haven’t made a load test with this model from OCZ yet to check whether it can really deliver 600 W or not. With this model from PC Power & Cooling we guarantee you that you will be able to pull its rated 610 W. Also, Silencer 610 EPS12V is quoted at the same price range of power supplies around 600 W from other manufacturers. So we think that pricing won’t be a real issue if you are looking for a good 600 W power supply.
Since this power supply passed flawlessly all our tests – and continued working after that –, is really able to deliver its labeled power at 45° C and provides a high efficiency, this is definitely a model we recommend, and that is why we are giving it our Golden Award Seal.
