Silver Power have been making PSUs for quite a while, though they've not received much press lately which changes with their new SP-850M PSU.  Their simian logo is all over this semi-modular power supply, which has four 6+2 PCIe power connectors for multiple GPU rigs as well as a nice selection of SATA power.  OC3D was nicely surprised by the efficiency of the PSU, while rated for 80 Plus Bronze their testing showed results more appropriate for an 80+ Gold rated PSU.  OC3D are not fans of the silverback, but love the actual PSU once they realized they could run it at 983W all day long.

What is with all these companies using animals as their new marketing gimmick for selling PSUs? Cougar, Gorillas, and I just saw a leopard on a enermax PSU ad in a magazine.

Army guns to wild animals? Hahah. weird.

the only reason I would buy that PSU is the Gorilla, I mean, c'mon! He looks badass!

Silver Power has had that monkey on their back for years ... they may even be the ones to blame for the animals on others.  Except for the Sharkoon ... no one can explain the Sharkoon.
