Just out of curiosity (and maybe something more, see sig), could you comment on the 910w Silencer? I would confess to having been a bit of a PC P+C fanboy at one point - had the 750w Silencer as well (still have it laying around). Initially, I bought the single-rail argument, as well as the modular argument (a few years ago, when mod was relatively new), partly because I tend to follow against-the-herd positions in a knee-jerk fashion. At the same time, they did get pretty good reviews (PC P+C FUD notwithstanding) both from users and serious reviewers. In fact, the 910w got this, from the Wolf:http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...tory5&reid=157
Of course, it also got this:http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/...0_psu_review/9
I should say that I never really cared about noise, so that wasn't a factor for me. Aside from that, Wolf was pretty enthusiastic. On the other hand, OCP wasn't as pleased - almost like they got a different psu.
It sounds like I won't be getting a PC P+C in the future, barring some sort of comeback. I guess I'm just wondering if I got the last of the good ones or the first of the mediocre ones, or something in between (I know the 910w became very hard to find shortly after release, because of parts/relationship issues with...Seasonic?). I should say that the 910w unit's always treated me quite well, as far as I can tell, and I'd like to transfer it to a next-gen rig with one or two GTX 4XX/5XXs. Is it true that the unit could have been rated 1000w? Thanks for any input.
edit: another great/bad 910w review:http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/p...910w_atx_psu/5
again, almost like they got a different psu than jonnyguru.Edited by seward - 10/31/10 at 7:16pm
