Recertified PC Power & Cooling Silencer 500W $30 - Page 2

post #11 of 67
This is not a bad deal at all, but if memory serves me right, this isn't the same as the "better" Silencers, like the 610W and 750W versions, let alone the newer 760W and 910W versions. I think this is similar to an Antec Earthwatts 500W (or is that also the same as the higher wattage ones)?

Just an FYI for those who see the Silencer name to have an approximation to where this one stands. It's still a good PSU and a good deal no doubt, but Newegg had the recertified 610W for like $40 plus shipping (down from $50 plus shipping) before it finally sold out, which I'd stake as a better deal. I kind of wish I'd had jumped on it for a spare, but alas.

Still might pick this one up. These "original" Silencers are going to be gone before you know it.

Budzos, did you get yours? Everything OK with them? Might pick one up so I can put my old 8800GT into one of my kids computers.

I did as well. This really is the best I've come across on a PSU.

It does look alot like the Earthwatts 500 internally. I have had an earthwatts 500 on my HTPC for 3+ years now, running almost every day. Great PSU. At one point had a quad and a 9800GTX+ both folding 24/7 on it with no probs. Given the fact that this PCP&C is BLACK and has actual SLEEVING, it makes it even more desirable than the earthwatts, IMHO. This is the best deal I have personally gotten since I snagged a 400w StealthXtream (GREAT PSU) for $25 shipped.

I can't believe these things are still in stock. And IIRC, Directron ships fast and has good CS.

Yes I got mine, I am currently on vacation but I threw it in a rig before I left and it worked fine for the 15 minutes minutes I was able to play with it. I have another on the way. It is smaller than my 750 Silencers but it seems to be built just as solid. When I get back from vacation which should be tuesday night I will give it more scrutiny. I would not hesitate to buy another another one if I needed it.
