Be quiet has apparently launched the Pure Power 11 series PSUs.

Go to solution Solved by Rexper,

There is a review at TweakPC.de: https://www.tweakpc.de/hardware/tests/netzteile/be_quiet_pure_power_11/s01.php

Though I'd like to see some internal photos / description.

 

OPP isn't set properly (out of spec voltage before powers off), but atleast it has OCP.

As like the Pure Power 10, the power good signal is out of spec.

 

Otherwise the unit is pretty good

The Pure Power 11 series PSUs are the successors to the popular Pure Power 10 series PSUs (duh), and feature a longer warranty, some updated componentry, and a higher 80+ efficiency certification. The warranty has been extended to 5 years (up from 3), and the 80+ efficiency certification has gone from 80+ Silver to 80+ Gold (on the 400-700W models).

 

This increased efficiency means less heat, meaning the fan can spin at a lower RPM. In addition, the fan has been upgraded in order to produce less motor and bearing noise. These changes allow for the PSU to be quieter. 

 

The protections are all in place, just like with the Pure Power 10, including OTP and multi rail OCP. 

 

There are a total of 10 models, going from 300-700W for the non modular version, and from 400-700W for the semi modular version. The 300 and 350W models might as well be ignored, as they only share the name with the other models but are otherwise different. The non modular versions cost from €59.90/£52.99 for the 400W, to €95.90/£84.99 for the 700W. Meanwhile, the semi modular versions go from €65.90/£59.99 for the 400W to €104.90/£94.99 for the 700W. 

 

The main thing here is the warranty, imo. The Pure Power 10's 3 year warranty is shorter than what you find on Corsair's similarly priced CX, CXM and Vengeance PSUs, and more in line with the VS series. The 5 year warranty gets rid of the main thing that the CX and CXM did better than the Pure Power. 

The 5 year warranty should also put it more in line with the BitFenix Formula, another entry level 80+ Gold certified PSU, which is also quiet, has a rifle bearing fan, multi rail OCP and a 5 year warranty. But with a semi modular option, Be Quiet might have an edge over the BitFenix for the average consumer. 

 

I don't think anyone cares about pictures of the PSUs. They look exactly the same as the Pure Power 10. 

In case anyone does:

Was be quiet originally in a different language and when it was translated it came out to "be quiet"? Almost like "silent" in another language didn't have a direct translation so it's closest meaning was "be quiet".

that being said 3 year warranty is fine , how much warranty can a 50$ thing really have?

I believe it was named that right from the start. 

 

5 years on the CX, CXM, Vengeance, Formula, B3, Masterwatt, Focus and some versions of the BQ. All of those cost around $50.

That was the intention when they started, around 15 years ago (or rather when they introduced their first power supplys, the Blackline and Colorline (with BLUE LED FANs!!!1), that was in ~2003 IIRC.

They started as a (Water) Cooling/Enduser online shop and moved towards PSU in the early 2000s....

 

As there were no quiet PSU at the time, they thought about making quiet PSU and thus labeled it "be quiet"...

That's in short the story people from be quiet told me about the beginning of be quiet...

 

And they weren't wrong...

While there were pretty quiet units, they weren't available for endusers...

 

Remember we're talking about grey boxes with names like "PC-Winner" on it...

I agree with you.

But people want warranty duration, they do not care about the quality or the terms.

If the warranty excludes smoking or living in slightly moist enviroments.

Wear and Tear is always excluded.

And most companys also exclude warranty for used purchases. Some even name eBay or similar plattforms.

 

So in short quantity over quality...
