PC Power & Cooling Silencer ATX Power Supplies

Author: Lee Garbutt

First Impressions

Like all PC Power & Cooling power supplies, the Silencers come securely packaged in a plain cardboard box.  In addition to the power supply each box contains a set of Installation Instructions, mounting screws and a power cord.

These new Silencers come sporting a black matte finish with a black fan grill.  An On-Off switch is now included on the back panel.

There is no manual line voltage selector switch because the unit auto-detects the incoming voltage level.  This is a nice feature that avoids the potential damage that can be caused by inadvertently (or intentionally) setting a manual line voltage selector switch to the wrong voltage.

The PC Power & Cooling Silencer power supplies come with a full compliment of connectors including two dedicated Serial ATA drive connectors. 

(1)     ATX12V Main motherboard connector (20 pin)

(1)     12V Power connector — P4 (4 pin)

(8)  Peripheral HDD connectors (4 pin)

(1)     Peripheral FDD connector (4 pin)

(2)     Serial ATA power connectors (15 pin)

The wiring harnesses all measure approximately 17' long and none of them are sleeved.
