Final Words and Conclusion
What We Did Like
The Lian Li Silent Force 750W unit is a professionally designed and high quality product, the electrical performance is excellent while the thermal and acoustics performance of the unit are very well balanced.
Lian Li chose the components for this product very carefully and the build quality appears to be very good as well. Aesthetically the excellent paint job and the modular design of the Silent Force make it very appealing but at the same time very elegant instead of merely gaudy ... this is what we would expect from a Lian Li product.
What We Did Not Like
The four 12V lines are a good idea for a 750W product, but only 18A per line is not ideal. The Lian Li Silent Force 750W unit doesn't appear able to support an overloaded 12V line from an underloaded one, as it will shut down if the load on any of the 12V lines exceeds 20-22A. It won't be too easy to throw this PSU off balance but it certainly is possible. The product lacks several lesser certifications such as SLI/Crossfire approval even though we believe that it meets the grade.
Who Would We Recommend It To
The Lian Li Silent Force 750W PSU is a very well designed and balanced product with an excellent electrical performance and elegant appearance. It will certainly satisfy any enthusiast, specifically modders and HTPC users with its great acoustics performance and modular design. The components have been carefully chosen, the heatsinks are very good and even the textured paint job is unique and refreshing in style. If Lian Li could bolster the output of the 12V lines it would be close to perfect.
Taking into consideration all of the above, the Lian Li Silent Force S750GE earns our Editor's Choice Award.
