Installation:

Installation is straightforward. However, the cables really should have been longer. The unit was installed into a Cooler Master Cosmos and the 8-pin cable barely reached on the Gigabyte P35-DS3P motherboard. We even had to remove the twist tie that keeps the cables bundled together close to the power supply. That gave the extra inch or so to make it to the plug. It's true that most cases have their power supplies above the motherboard, but the trend that started with the Lian-Li has become much more mainstream with the Antec P180 and SilverStone Temjin TJ09. These cables definitely need to be a bit longer.

Performance:

The hardware used included an Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 overclocked to 3010MHz, OCZ Flex XLC DDR2-1150 memory, Gigabyte P35-DS3P, Gigabyte 8800GTS 640MB, Chaintech AV-710, NEC ND-3540, and four Western Digital Serial ATA hard drives. Due to the lack of ATI CrossFire support under Linux, we were unable to test this power supply in a MultiGPU configuration. When running the PC Power & Cooling 750W Silencer PSU in this test system it operated very quietly. We couldn't complain about its noise level and all around when it came to the operation we hadn't run into any technical troubles. For looking at the performance of this power supply we had recorded its voltage rails using a digital multimeter when the system was idling within GNOME and recorded the voltages a second time after running loops of Doom 3 and CPUBurn-In. The idle and load tests had each lasted for 30 minutes. Below are the results.
