Nice Unit

Pros: -Does what it promises and quite. I am powering a GTX 970 SC and play a lot of VR on it. It does not even rev up the fan much that I can tell.

Cons: -It's white :) I wish it was black.

Quiet and stable. Great service.

Pros: It ran quietly and perfectly stable for 2.3 years. It just died one day. Contacted Firepower for an RMA # and shipped it off. 13 days later I received replacement.

Fantastic service and communication from Firepower. They stand behind there product w/a 7 year warranty. I still have 4+ years of warranty on my replacement PSU. I was so impressed, I purchased their 1200W 80 Plus Platinum PSU.

Cons: none

FirePower/PC Poer and Cooling PPCMK3S500 Silencer MK III 500W

Pros: Modular , Well built and great cable management. This brand has a long lasting reputation with customers for a long time on products well built with quality parts and a great warranty ( 5 yrs ) to back up their products . What more can you ask for ?

Cons: None other than the extra (modular) cables "could" be a tad longer and in a thresh mesh like the main 3 cables attached to the PSU. Just a nit-picky "con" that doesn't affect the performance of the product(s) at all.

Other Thoughts: I would DEFINITELY recommend this to others !

Excellent Quality Power Supply

Pros: Modular design helps reduce wire clutter and improve cable management.

Cons: None as of this moment.

Other Thoughts: I have owned this power supply for well over 3 years now and have yet to experience any issues. Fan continues to run quietly, and keeps my system running stable. Will definitely buy another PC P&C product again.

Looks like there's a first time for everything...

Pros: Dead-silent.
Excellent modular plugs.
Long cable length good for full-tower cases

Cons: Died after just a few hours

Other Thoughts: I've been exclusively purchasing PC Power and Cooling power supplies since the company's inception. I've purchased probably eight of their supplies over the years and until this unit, they've always been unparalleled in quality, silence, and durability.

The reason that I've owned this for less than a week? It died after just a few hours of use. Borrowed another supply from a different computer to rule out anything else on the new build, and it works just fine. Plugged suspected dead supply into the other computer as a final test, and it wouldn't power up either.

I tired to exchange, but Newegg is out-of-stock. Will probably purchase another based on past experiences when it comes back into stock.

Note that PC Power and Cooling was since purchased by OCZ, and has since been spun off as FirePower...I hope their quality isn't slipping.
