We have another Big PSU review for you today! This isn't the first PC Power and Cooling unit we've looked at. Nor is it the first from their Silencer Mark III series, as we previously reviewed the 600w unit from that series.
Today's unit is a bit different though, mostly in that it can put out twice the wattage and at a far higher efficiency level. Both things are good tricks, as 80+ Bronze is solid efficiency and 600w isn't exactly small.
As you've probably gathered from the title, today's unit is the PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mark III 1200w 80+ Platinum. If it lives up to what it says it can do, it's one hell of a unit.
Given past PC Power and Cooling results I expect it'll survive load testing and TEUW, but I'll check anyway! First though, a bit about PC Power and Cooling from their webpage.
It doesn't mention that OCZ bought them out a few years ago. Interestingly a few years ago OCZ PSUs suddenly got significantly better... In any case, from what I've read PC Power and Cooling has been left mostly to its own devices and has retained their own design and support staff.
Let's cut to the marketing, and check out the features and specifications.
