Thanks Gabe, a terrific PSU indeed but can you be more specific on that bold statement?

In summary, Silencer 910 is a very good option for the high-end user looking for a beefy power supply with very high efficiency and ultra low noise levels.
It's about ripple or about sound? If it's ripple is OK but if is sound is not so OK. OW was almost deaf after testing it

it's loud. What? I said it's loud. What? IT'S LOUD! No, I didn't say it's cloudy, I said it's... oh forget it.
and guys from OC3D the same

- Running this PSU above 75% load will more than likely damage your ear drums.
Even on Guru3D they said that

Our volume level noise measurements results were what I consider to be okay at best, I would not classify the PSU as silent aka "Silencer", though.

Hello,

Noise here was ripple & noise (electrical noise). I didn't measure acoustic noise levels. I will edit the review to make this clear.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Cheers,
Gabriel.
