Mike Sanders / 8 months ago
Despite 2021 certainly getting off to a bit of a rough start in terms of product availability, a statement that perhaps may ironically also represent one the biggest understatements of the year, be quiet! has been one of the few manufacturers to have really kicked things off strongly with the launch of many new products. – With the new ‘Pure Power 11 FM’ range announced earlier this month, today marks the day in which be quiet! has officially released their brand new PSU series to the market. And, in case you were curious as to whether they were any good, well, with a 650W sample in our hands, we had to check this out!
be quiet! Pure Power 11 FM
Available in 550W, 650W, and 750W variants, for this review we will specifically take a closer look at the 650W design. Packed with plenty of excellent features, including an 80-Plus Gold efficiency rating and fully modular cable design, this certainly, on initial impressions, looks to be hitting all the remits a savvy power supply consumer should have.
Before we got onto those all-important tests, however, let’s first take a look at the be quiet! Pure Power 11 FM and check out those tasty features and specifications it has to offer!

Coming as a fully-modular cable design means that you only have to fit the cables your PC components require. In terms of getting everything successfully hooked up, while we will look at this in more detail later in the review, what we will say now is that unless your system is an absolute powerhouse, the 650W design will provide you with more than enough to hook everything up successfully. With, it should be noted, plenty of spare cabling available for any potential future upgrade!
