OCZ Subsidiary PC Power and Cooling Announces Silencer 760W PSU

OCZ Technology Group, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs), memory modules, and power supplies for computing devices and systems, has launched the new Silencer 760 power supply from PC Power & Cooling, OCZ’s PSU (power supply unit) subsidiary. Built for best-in-class stability and reliability for today’s high-end gaming systems and professional workstations, the Silencer line has proven itself as one of the most trusted PSU series on the market for more than 20 years.

“The PC Power and Cooling Silencer power supplies have long been regarded as a top-quality solution by system builders and clients who require the very best performance and dependability,” said Charlie McMenomey, Product Manager at OCZ Technology Group. “Building on the proven core architecture of the original series, the new Silencer 760W further raises the bar with an 80 PLUS Silver efficiency, exceptional reliability and the power output to meet the demands of power users.”

With a history of over 25 years building long-lasting, investment-grade power management, PC Power designed the new Silencer to offer consumers a combination of legendary PSU architecture and the ultimate in performance. The newest addition to the legendary Silencer series completes the family of ultra-quiet, high-reliability PSUs, which now range from 500 to 910 watts. Featuring an 80 Plus Silver certification, the new 760W offers energy and cost savings with 88% efficiency (typical load) combined with a power output to meet the demands of the most component-heavy systems.

The rock-solid Silencer series not only meets a high standard of quality, but also guarantees superior compatibility with the latest graphic cards to provide sufficient output to even the most demanding graphics cards and cutting-edge platforms. The Silencer series is tested and qualified for systems with multiple power-hungry drives and video cards by delivering 760 watts of continuous power and 835W at its peak, and offers a temperature rating of 50ºC, twice that of the industry standard. Featuring rock-solid, super-clean DC output, a powerful Single Rail +12VDC (74A), and complete array of connectors including dual PCI-Express 6-pin, dual PCI-Express 6/8-pin, and 20+4-pin, 8-pin, and 4/8-pin motherboard connectors, this PSU can power a full array of high-end components.

The PC Power Silencer 760 slots into the series under the Silencer 910 and both are built with the highest-quality components and circuitry to provide one of the highest MTBF ratings at over 100,000 hours. In addition to the industry's most powerful yet versatile design on the market, the Silencer is backed by an industry-leading 7-Year warranty commitment and the expert knowledge of PC Power & Cooling technical support and engineering.

Yup, modular cables are evil, large top fans are evil, and more than one +12V rail is evil.

he has to be joking, because i too have read that a single 12V rail design is the best
Clearly you didn't read my post well. :)

Are Multiple 12-volt Rails Better Than A Single 1... granted this was from 2007 but I do not think psu's have changed all that much.
Never had an issue with multi rail myself, I've had a 6 rail psu and I couldn't overload the thing if I tried ( except conventional ways like to many 480s lol)

i wonder if they're still built to the same standard as the original pcpc stuff from seasonic that johnny guru rated so well. i know my 750w is a super sturdy unit thats been going strong for a few years now with 2 4870's draining it's resources, and an oc'd 9550. when the power gets choppy around teh house, the lights flicker, and my other computers shut off, but my main rig keeps trucking thru the brown outs without a sweat, whimper or even a mentioning of it's existence in my comp. would buy them again if i knew ocz kept the same quality of production, instead of using the name only. i'll stick with seasonic branded psu's until then, and hopefully get a battery backup system before the old silencer 750 craps out from the shitty power i keep giving it.

because seasonic is to PCPaC like TSMC is with AMD. too expensive to manufacture in house, you design then hand off to a manufacturer that only has to re-tool their existing equipment. it's not like PCPaC is just slapping their paint and a sticker on an existing seasonic power supply. seasonic has no equivalent unit directly comparable the PCPaC models, at least the original units before the buyout. the base seasonic units are basic, and not quite up to the same standard as the PCPaC silencer's and turbos IMO, although seasonic make their gold units, but they're a much higher priced, and spec'd power supply, akin to the antec signatures, also made by seasonic IIRC.
