Any information regarding the new PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk.III series units?

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1310/pg1/pc-power-cooling-silencer-mkiii-600w-power-supply-review-introduction.html

They are (semi) modular now (!), but they seem more a replacement (or even supplement?) for the Mk.II line, as they will be lower wattage range of 400W to 600W, and hopefully the original Silencers stay.

Better yet, hopefully the original Silencers get a real successor (not a relabeled OCZ) at some point. They're still exceptional, but people can't seem to break from the 80mm fan and lack of modularity on them. They need something like that to truly get them back up in a lot of eyes in my opinion. The new units aren't "bad", but with the original ones stuck in the past a bit, it seems these newer Mk.II and I guess Mk.III now units are being forced to carry the weight that their modern reputation is being based on.

Forgot XFX Core Pro (550W and less), some SilverPower units too I think. I knew it was more popular than that list looked. tongue.gif

Ah, so priced right, with the modularity, this could be a potent option for people who don't need a lot of wattage? I could see this working well for modest CPU/single GPU systems in smaller cases with the semi-modularity. I must admit too, the White is different and doesn't put me off (even if something like Matte Black is probably more preferred to me).

I'd still like to see the top end of their lineup reformed too, but it sounds potentially promising. Now if they'd do away with the Mk.II and even original Silencers with a replacement for the both of them.
