BeQuiet power supplies have been scoring well this year in our reviews and today we look at the Pure Power L8 430W CM unit. A low cost, power modular design which has achieved 80 Plus Bronze Certification. Is this an ideal option for a high grade media center or general gaming machine?
The BeQuiet! Pure Power L8 430W is a semi modular design. The ‘CM’ stands for ‘Cable Management’, which is a fancy way of saying ‘Modular’. There are some cables hardwired into the unit, so it is not a pure modular design. Right now this unit is available in the United Kingdom for only £52 inc vat, so it won’t break the bank.
