BeQuiet! Pure Power L8 430W CM PSU Review

Rating: 8.0.

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.

Product overview:

  • Exceptionally quiet operation achieved through an array of careful optimizations, including use of a custom-designed, quiet-optimized 120mm Fan
  • 430 Watts of continuous power provide massive power reserves for those times your PC really needs it all
  • Cable management with long cable reach simplifies component installation and reduces annoying clutter, increasing airflow and improving cooling
  • 80PLUS Bronze certification and up to 88% power conversion efficiency let you do more work with the same power and reduce your power bills
  • AMD CrossfireX certification readiness allow you to build powerful Multi-GPU systems with confidence
  • German product conception, design and quality control
