be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM 600W Review

The be quiet! Straight Power 10 power supply is a no frills design – no fancy colour strips or lights on the corners. be quiet have finished the power supply in deep black paint which is pretty much as good as you would expect from the German company.

The unit passed our ‘screwdriver’ test. This involves running the head of a Philips head driver down the side of the chassis with light to medium force. After all, how many times have you accidentally connected with a power supply during a system build?

No scratch was left on the paintwork.

The fan section of be quiet! power supplies is very distinctive. The company use a series of metal grills which run the full length of the chassis. We can see the Silent Wings 3 fan underneath and will take a closer look at this when we open the unit shortly.

One side of the unit is vented to help improve air flow. A power connector and switch is set at the side underneath more company branding.

As we mentioned earlier in the review, the Straight Power 10 power supplies are not pure modular designs, the company hardwire the primary motherboard connector. The modular panel is clearly labelled and runs in a single line from left to right. This is a fool proof system as all the connector sizes are different.

One side of the chassis has ‘be quiet!' embossed into the metal. A nice touch.
