Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760 W is a relabeled Seasonic S12D 750 W unit, but with a rear 80 mm fan instead of using 120 mm model and a single +12 V rail instead of two +12 V rails. Its highlights include the use of a DC-DC design, 80 Plus Silver certification, and 836 W peak wattage. Let’s check it out.

The PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760 W is 7.1” (180 mm) deep, with a 80 mm ball bearing fan (ADDA AD0812UB-A71GL, 3,900 rpm, 50 cfm, 41 dBA) on its rear panel.

Following PC Power & Cooling’s tradition, the Silencer 760 W doesn’t have a modular cabling system. All cables are protected with nylon sleeves and the unit comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 19/7” (50 cm) long
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 23.2” (59 cm) long
  • One cable with one EPS12V connector, 23.2” (59 cm) long
  • Two cables, each with one six-pin connector for video cards, 22.4” (57 cm) long
  • Two cables, each with one six/eight-pin connector for video cards, 22.4” (57 cm) long
  • Two cables, each with four SATA power connectors, 18.5” (47 cm) to the first connector, 5.5” (14 cm) between connectors
  • Two cables, each with three standard peripheral power connectors, 21.6” (55 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with four standard peripheral power connectors, 23.2” (59 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors and one floppy disk drive power connector, 23.2” (59 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors

The cables with SATA and peripheral power connectors use 18 AWG wires, but the main motherboard cable, the EPS12V/ATX12V cables and the video card cables use thicker 16 AWG wires, which is always nice to see.

The cable configuration is perfect for a 760 W unit.
