Be quiet! Pure Power 11 FM 850W power supply

Available in powers ranging from 650 to 1000 watts, the new Pure Power 11 FM range effectively represents the new entry-level power supply standard from be quiet. And believe me when I say that in generic global comparative market terms, shut up! clearly sets a very high standard for this mission!

Offering a fully modular cable design, near-silent operation, and an 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating, the Pure Power 11 FM Series offers all the key features people want to see in a high-quality power supply design. – So with that in mind, we were more than a little curious to see how well this 850W model would perform!

What is it to be silent! Have to say?

“Pure Power stands for unmatched reliability and cutting-edge features at a competitive price. Pure Power 11 FM is the latest addition to this series: ‘FM’ stands for ‘fully modular’ meaning that all cables that are not used for nothing in the system are left out.This results in smoother airflow, lower temperatures and easier handling inside the case.

Pure Power 11 FM is 80 PLUS® Gold certified with an efficiency rating of up to 93.9%, a truly exceptional level for this class of power supply. The most convincing advantages of this high efficiency are the lower energy consumption and therefore lower costs and cooler, quieter operation. Unlike other Pure Power 11 models featuring Active Clamp, Synchronous Rectifier (SR) and DC-toDC technology, the Pure Power 11 FM series is equipped with LLC + SR + DC/DC technology for voltage stability and regulation advances. Cooling is obtained thanks to a 120 mm be quiet optimized for silence! fan with blades optimized for airflow. This allows for premium silent functionality and the
extraordinarily quiet operation that is silent! is famous for.”
