Do You Have A Love For Small PSUs?
be quiet! have announced updated models to three of their PSU lines including the fully modular Pure Power 11 FM, the SFX Power 3 and the TFX Power 3. The Pure Power 11 FM will be available in 550W, 650W and 750W 80 PLUS GOLD models, the TFX Power 3 will have 300W Gold and Bronze models and the SFX Power 3 will offer both 300W and 400W Bronze units.
The TFX is the most compact of the three, measuring 175 x 85 x 65mm (6.9 x 3.3 x 2.6″) and is cooled with an 80mm fan which will produce well under 30dBA when running at 100%. The TFX Power 3 offers 300W of power with two separate 12V rails for tiny systems, and at standby slurps a mere 0.17W. The attached flat power cables are 60cm long and include a single PCIe 6+2, three SATA, two PATA and a FDD, all are permanently attached.
The two SFX models are slightly larger, at 100 x 125 x 63.5 (3.9 x 5 x 2.5″) but uses the same fan as the TFX Power 3. The SFX Power 3 offers a bit more connectivity than the TFX, including two PCIe 6+2 cables, with the same number of SATA, PATA and FDD cables.
Last is the Pure Power 11 full ATX PSUs, which sport be quiet!’s familiar 120mm fans, with the 24.8dBA produced by the 750W model at 100% load being the loudest of the three models, if that amount of sound pressure can even be described as loud. The cables on these fully modular PSUs are almost twice as long as the previous two models, at 110cm and include four PCIe 4+2, two 12V motherboard, nine SATA, two PATA and a FDD if you have something that could use it.
The two smaller models come with a three year warranty, while the Pure Power 11 has a five year warranty.
