Default PC Power & Cooling Certified Test Report

I have a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 950 MK II and I was having problems and it looked like it could have been my PSU. I RMA the 950 MK II and it was fine when they returned the PSU they also included the test relusts. Reading the result sheet I noticed that it was loaded to 100% and it showed that it maxed out @115 Amps and that is equal to 1380W and was held at that amperage for 1 hour and had a 90.98 % efficincy. Like WOW I only paid $139.99 for the unit and after reading the results sheet did I get a freaking deal or what. It also comes with a 7 year warranty. So for anyone looking for a PSU that is one you should siriusly look at, I doent lnow if they all would test with results like that but still it saves me dropping $250_$400 on a new 1200+ PSU for the 3 way EVGA 3 way GTX 570 Clissifed.

I believe there is something wrong with those numbers. Are you still having issues?

Seems about right to me. PCP&C has always included those reports but you have to remember that most good modern PSUs can be pushed beyond their specs like that.

Seems fine to me, you got a pretty awesome PSU here. Even when they try to kill it it passe XD
PSU is most likelay blamed for problem that are not even related to PSU, did you gave a shot to the troubleshooting section?

No it ended up being the video cards both Sapphire 5850 Xtreme's were dieing so I RMA them and the PSU that was just in the report from the rma when it was returned. It runs my three new EVGA GTX 570 Clissified's just fine. But it have been 7 weeks and still no word on the Sapphire 5850 Xtreme's but from what I was told they may be garbage and will never find out that is how good Sapphire's warranty is.

Oh.... don't be in a rush with Sapphire, and Althon. My last rma with them took 3 months to complete.
