Then, we move on to PCP&C's white Silencer MK3. What I've always liked about PCP&C PSUs is the fact that they always had that "robust" feeling about them. This one is no different. Unlike ZT650, it's a semi-modular PSU with the ATX connector sticking out of the PSU. Also, the connectors are "in line", unlike the ZT650 where connectors are horizontal and vertical to the PSU and on two different levels. Silencer's approach is a bit tidier, but at the same time, it lacks any markings in terms of which connector is which on the PSU. So, you'll have to go through its manual to gather that, but, at the same time, it's not a bad approach per se.
The connector layout is clearly marked on the second page of the manual, so, everything cool. This way, it kind of pre-supposes that you're gonna attach the cables upfront which means you won't have to go through the frustration of doing it when you already installed the PSU in your case. Which can really be a pain. Fine by us.
