We review the PC Power and Cooling MK III Silencer 750 Watt review from OCZ technology. The Silencer Mk III series are all about being quiet, being awesome and very efficient and again, the PSU as tes...
Good article Hilbert. I like to check newer gear against my current stuff. I still use the PC P&C MKII 750W version but it is nice to know even in last gen hardware I still have a darn good power supply. I believe, however, that you made a maths mistake calculating Power. The proper formula,( which I also use for calculating what an item would sell for in our shop) --
X / % = Y
In your example -- 500W x 1.3 = 650W but 650W x 70% efficiency = 455W
The Correct Way -- 500W / .7 = 714.3W and 714.3W x 70% efficiency = 500W
In a retail setting I would need to charge $714 for something I paid $500 for in order to make a 30% margin based on selling price. Clear as mud right?
