80 PLUS GOLD CERTIFICATION

Very high operating efficiency

Pure Power 11 500W is certified 80 PLUS Gold with an efficiency rating of up to 92% – a truly outstanding level for this class of PSU. The most compelling benefit: lower power consumption and consequently lower costs, and cooler, quieter operation.

POWER AND COMPATIBILITY FOR YOUR SYSTEM

The best combination of features and performance at a very popular price

Pure Power 11 CM offers 500W of continuous power with two independent 12V rails for signal stability and two PCI express connectors for multi-GPU systems. It is suited to very quiet systems, for upgrading or building multimedia or multi-GPU gaming systems.

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

DC-to-DC, Active Clamp and Synchronous Rectifier

The use of Active Clamp and Synchronous Rectifier technologies provides very stable operation. The PSU is equipped with DC-to-DC conversion for even tighter voltage regulation under heavy cross-loading conditions. This ensures secure operation for next generation processors and graphics cards.

EXCEPTIONALLY SILENT OPERATION

Achieved by a silence-optimized 120mm be quiet! fan

The silence-optimized 120mm be quiet! fan is thermally governed to strike the best balance between effective cooling and quietness. Airflow-optimized fan blades reduce turbulence, enabling best-in-class quiet functionality and the almost inaudible operation that be quiet! is famous for. 

MODULAR CABLE MANAGEMENT WITH FLAT CABLES

Total convenience and design for your system

Pure Power 11 500W CM is certainly eye-catching. The modular cable management is enhanced with premium black, sleeved cables. The flat cables used for the PCI-express connection and drives simplify installation as well as keeping the system tidy.
