PCP&C is dead. These are Sirfa units. Forget about the quality brand that once existed, because it's not around any more.

A bit of advice to other PSU brands: if you have a good manufacturing relationship with Seasonic, don't screw it up. Going from Seasonic to Sirfa is the polar opposite of an upgrade.

The 910W Silencer was a screamer under load by all accounts, despite using a newer, more efficient (less heat producing) topology. And now they'll going to start offering it in a smaller package? Oh goody. The only thing really of note here is PCP&C's progress towards pulling that 80mm stick out of their arse. Pretty much what most predicted would eventually happen once OCZ bought them up.

This is not the 910W Silencer. That was actually a good PSU, despite the noise. Although I'm not a fan of PCP&C's old 80mm fan and non-modular philosophy, switching to Sirfa as an OEM isn't an improvement.

I hope you all took screenshots of PCP&C's PSU Myths page because this is yet another PSU that goes against the old ones they had....

RIP PC Power & Cooling, you will be missed...

The OCZ Z-series 850W and 1000W models are Sirfa-made and are decent. Everything else is pretty mediocre.

Another part they can offer up a rebate for. OCZ is synonymous with crappy rebates.
