We have been reviewing products from OCZ for a very long time. But today will be the first time we have reviewed anything form them under the PC Power & Cooling marker which they just forces with back in 2007. And we feel it's an honor due to the fact that PC Power & Cooling is a local company to Pro-Clockers right here in San Diego.

The third generation Silencer Mk III 500W offers all the current advancements that that the previous two models do not.

In the case of the new 500 watt Silencer power supply that comes in the form of a Bronze certification, modular cables, a more powerful 12v rail and greater under- and overload protections.
