    Hmmm, the pricepoints in Germany are different. The Be Quiet is much cheaper than the compared ones
    The (upcoming?) non CM version shoud be 10€ cheaper still.

    be quiet! Pure Power 9 600W CM ~80€
    EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W ~103€
    SilverStone SX600-G 600W ~110€

    Really liking the orange ring around the fan...

    ....I may or may not have initially though this was a review for a 600W PSU with a length of less than 10 centimeters. :duh: I really should stop interneting when I'm not fully awake yet :rolleyes:

    Not sure what all this fuss over fans turning completely off is all about. Having used Be Quiet PSU's in the past I know they can be completely silent with the fan running low-medium, if not high, and that is holding my ear up to the fan.

    Even with my Corsair HX 850i, setting the fan at a silent 40% decreases the internal temp by 10c, which if the "every 10c rise in temp will half the lifespan of your components" adage is true, then I could be doubling the time my components run more efficiently,

    Same goes for graphics cards. It's actually easy to maintain a lower temperature if you have cooling applied before the temp rises. So having GPU fans set to the highest you can (whilst still maintaining silence) before you start a game will give you a huge advantage in combating any noise you might get from fans at high load.

    I know it can make sense for ~150W GPU's, but it's definitely not preferable at ~250W.
