Package and Appearance
The power supply comes in a color box just like the new one of the Silencer 750 QUAD. It is securely held inside of the box to protect it while shipping. The power unit itself comes in a matte black color. An 80mm Delta Electronics fan is located at the front of the power supply. During operation the air will come through openings in the front of the PSU as well as through the venting holes on both sides - the side vents help to cool the transformer among other components.
PCP&C uses the same sort of fan that we saw in the Turbo Cool 1200W power supply: a very noisy Delta Electronics fan that can reach speeds of up to 5000RPM. While the fan runs is rated at the same speed as before, we measured slightly lower noise levels than the 1200W version (most likely the result of dissipating 340W less power, though changes in the internal layout may also play a role).
