    Default PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760W

    The PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760W features an 80Plus Silver certification, coming with an astounding 7 year warranty and a competitive price of $130. It's also got an interesting front-to-back cooling design, bucking the recent trend of large bottom-mounted fan designs. Can it measure up?

    62 amp rail on a 760W PSU. Not bad. Nice review Jake.

    I was a big PCP&C advocate back in the day. Rock solid products, excellent components and construction, no frills and silly gimmicks, just a solid product 100% Made in USA. Then they sold out to OCZ. OCZ then laid off all the PCP&C manufacturing and assembly workers, and outsourced the construction to China. Now all PCP&C products are China-made. The build quality is lower, the component grades are lower, and the prices are just as high as before. Great for OCZ, they now take in a higher profit margin. Not so good for you, paying more to get less. Not so good for the workers they fired either. I'll bet the Chinese like OCZ though. Me? I started buying PCP&C products back in the early 1990's. I won't be buying any of their products any more though. PCP&C is a hollow empty name now, slapped on cheap china-made goods.

    Unfortunately, "back in the day", tough decisions had to be made. Move overseas or go out of business. I would blame the government and not the company. NAFTA was a tough deal for American production.

    No, that isn't it at all. Why make excuses for OCZ's actions? PCP&C production was always in the USA, from 1985 through 2007 when OCZ bought them. I agree that NAFTA is yet another Clinton-era turd, but PCP&C was plenty profitable on their own, with USA manufacturing. They built a customer base specifically because they weren't the mega taiwanese factory turning out millions of cheap products. They built their customer base because they were a niche player in the market, selling a high-end (and high priced) product, and they were very successful at it, just as Porsche is in the automotive world.

    It wasn't until the OCZ acquisition in 2007 that production was moved to China, the USA workers all fired, and corners started to be cut in the name of driving profits. This was a greedy profit taking move by OCZ, nothing more. In fact, I'd say it wasn't a very tough decision at all on OCZ's part. But I'm a big advocate of voting with my dollars. And I don't vote for cheap moves like that. The PCP&C branded products of today (like this one) have nothing at all in common with the superior 1985 - 2007 PCP&C products. The only thing they share is the logo on the box.

    These companies had to move overseas or suffer going out of business in most cases. It is that simple and you cannot stop growth by acquisition. It is free enterprise and the American way unfortunately.

    Not bad for a non-modular unit.
