PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W Power Supply Review

Packaging and Accessories

Massive is the name of the game when it comes to the box in which the Silencer 610 is packaged. It seems as we review more power supplies, the boxes just becomes bigger and bigger…with this box being the granddaddy of them all. Even though this box is massive beyond belief, there is absolutely no flash on the outside; rather, PC Power & Cooling sticks to a plain white box with all of the features clearly written on the sides. You will also see that there is a small red sticker which indicates that the aforementioned certification test report is enclosed.

Once the box is opened we see the left-hand side of the box is stuffed with accessories while the right side has bubble-wrap for some extra protection. The power supply itself is suspended between two cardboard cradles which affords it very good protection against any shipping problems the box may encounter.

The accessories included with the Silencer are basic at best but this goes quite well with the utilitarian nature seen with the rest of the packaging. You get a power cord, mounting screws, a well written instruction manual and this particular unit also comes with the optional complete test report.
