The Silencer Quad comes with all the essentials: screws, a manual and a power cord. The manual was surprisingly informative for its small length and expresses the terms of the limited five year warranty on the back page. As you can see, it arrives in a stunning and unique red paint job, which we found to be quite durable. On the front of the power supply, you'll find the 80mm “silent” exhaust fan rated from 26 to 40dBA, the full range power inlet and the power switch, while the side and top house the obligatory certification and identification stickers. The unit is a little bit longer than the average ATX power supply. Here you can see it compared with the Ultra X3 600W, which is also the same size as the Thermaltake Toughpower 850W.
On top of the power supply is the power chart explaining the breakdown of amperage across the different rails. On the back, the intake grill seems to be pretty restrictive, but it serves to direct airflow over the hotter components, which we found to be a thoughtful design point. As you can see, the unit does not make use of modular cabling.
Everything seems to be in order here, a closer look at the cables next.
