be quiet! debuts Pure Power 9 CM power supplies
The German maker of high-end power supply units (PSUs) be quiet! has announced the new Pure Power 9 CM line of PSUs designed for hardware enthusiasts with two GPUs inside their machines. The line comes with four models inside with 400W, 500W, 600W and 700W of power output as well as other advanced technologies.
The new Pure Power 9 CM line packs a number of nice features that you cannot see everywhere. The line makes use of the newest technologies, including the so-called “Active Clamp+ SR” topology that leads to increased efficiency and makes group regulation unneeded. Thanks to this and the quality components used inside the new PSUs achieve 91 per cent of efficiency, which gives them 80 Plus Silver certification. Unlike other such PSUs the Pure Power 9 CM comes with two 12V rails, independent of each other, for better signal stability than before. The new Pure Power 9 CM line also comes with all common protection circuits inside most modern PSUs including UVP (under voltage protection), OVP (over voltage protection), SCP (short circuit protection), OPP (overload protection), OCP (over current protection) and OTP (overheating protection). The PSUs in the line are also fully compatible with the Energy Star 6.0 and ErP 2014 guidelines and fully support the C6/C7 low power states of modern Intel processors. The hardware inside the PSUs is cooled down by a 120 mm cooling fan, which is based on the Pure Power L8 but with significantly reduced motor and bearing noise. Moreover the Pure Power 9 CM PSUs are all fully modular and come with sports modular black ribbon cables. The 600W/700W PSUs feature four 6 + 2 pin PCI-E connectors, while the weaker 400W/500W PSUs come with two such connectors. Non-modular Pure Power 9 CM PSUs will be available this summer.
be quiet! wants EUR 69-109 for these PSUs, depending on the model and the power output chosen.
