Is the FSP Raider series 80+ Silver or Bronze?

I've noticed many sites and retailers describe the FSP Raiders' as 80 PLUS SILVER, though in all the reviews I could find describe them as bronze.

For example, http://www.orionpsudb.com/platforms and http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/FSP.htm describe them as silver, whereas http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=310 describes as bronze.

So which are they? Are there two different versions?

Raider passed the Ecova certification at Silver, but it can hardly pass it in normal PCs due to higher temperature. Therefore, FSP displays the Bronze badge on the box to stay more true to actual efficiency rather than Ecova test in 20C.

The FSP Raiders aren't good units, and you shouldn't use them in a gaming PC.
