Silencer 750 vs OP750

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I am getting a new powersupply and I have been watching the market for months. I have been pretty much set on the Silencer 750, until I saw the OP750. It seems to match the Silencer's performance and quality. However, I have seen a lot of people complaining about the noise issue with the OP750. Without having to read hundreds of posts, can anyone tell me if the issue has been resolved?

These are what I am looking at:

Silencer 750 (Black) $199 @ Tankguys
Silencer 750 (Copper) $179 @ EastLuna
OP750 $149 / $159 @ EastLuna or Newegg

Can I get some great insight on these PSU.

Thanks all!

Well, I love my Silencer. Its by far the quietest thing in my case.

Power is steady, and hasnt had a hiccup yet. Althought hat would be expected from a $200 PSU.



Food for thought, OCZ just bought out PCP&C. Not really sure what that means for PCP&C. I fear their quality will drop, but who knows?

But is the Silencer worth the extra $30 to $50?

I beleive it is. Ask Chozart, he knows everything. I'd get the PCP&C just to have the awesome copper color.


Also, is the other PSU rated at 750 continuous watts. Oh, refresh my memory, single rail?


***Edit***They both have the same amount of 12v amps. However, the PCP&C has a single rail. So, for the copper color and the single 12v rail, I'd get the PCP&C

Silencer 750 is rated at 750 continuous watts at 40C and 60Amps on the 12V line.

OP750 is rated at 750 continuous watts at 50C and 60Amps on the 12V line.

They are both single 12V PSU's.

Am I missing something. Am I thinking of the right PSU, or are NewEgg wrong?

Yes. It is worth the extra money. I would get the PC Power & Cooling Silencer-750 over any other hard-wired 600-800W Power Supply. If you need more power then I would get the Turbo-Cool 1kW, but, 750W with that many amps is plenty.

[RANT] THE POWER SUPPLY IS MADE OF COPPER. [/RANT]

Newegg is wrong:

With a single +12V rail continuous output up to 60A at 50°C , this peerless power is harnessed in a compact enclosure and cooled by a high quality 120mm fan tuned to perfection. Combining these performance and ergonomic attributes into a power supply such as the op750 is a dream come true not only for ardent enthusiasts but also for those who are simply looking for the best.

PC Power & Cooling has won every single award ever in the history of the world. But, on a more serious note, PC Power & Cooling has won every single award ever in the history of the world that could be awarded to a Power Supply Manufacturer. I would get it because of the...

-Name
-Quality
-Silence
-Piece of Mind

On that system I would not cheap out, and, anything but a SeaSonic or PC Power & Cooling Power Supply is cheaping out.
