    Default be quiet! System Power 8 400W, 500W and 600W, 80PLUS 230V EU

    be quiet! launched the System Power 8 series with 400, 500 and 600 watts. They offer well known be quiet! reliability and an efficiency of up to 87%. The System Power 8 is especially suited for price-conscious PC builders and system integrators due to its great price-performance ratio, multi-GPU capability, solid performance and an extensive feature set.

    The System Power 8 offers the best possible price without sacrificing important features. The manufacturer has integrated technology in accordance with the 80PLUS® standard, with an efficiency of up to 87 percent. Of course this includes a full suite of top safety protection circuits. In addition, each System Power 8 model meets the ambitious requirements of be quiet!, so the power supply doesn’t just operate with extreme stability, but is also very quiet. The low noise level is achieved with a high-quality 120 millimeter fan.

    A highlight of the new System Power 8 is its reliable performance, which is ensured by two independent 12V-rails and rock-solid voltage stability. The models with 400 and 500 watts are equipped with two PCI-Express connectors while the System Power 8 600W offers even double this number of connectors, ensuring that the new power supply series is also suitable for multi-GPU usage.

    Due to its outstanding characteristics, the System Power 8 is suitable for quiet office and multimedia systems as well as home theater PCs. It’s also optimally suited for integration in energy efficient entry-level gaming systems. The new power supplies comply with the Intel® C6/C7, ErP and EnergyStar guidelines. Thanks to its efficient technology, these power supplies achieve a low standby drain of less than 0.13 watts. The sleeved black cables give this power supply a high-quality appearance. A three-year warranty completes the overall package of the new System Power 8 models.

    In January 2016, four additional models with 300, 350, 450 and 550 watts will be added as bulk versions. The System Power 8 series is now only available in Europe and Australia with a 230V AC input voltage.

    System Power 7 is the superior product I guess.

    No, HEC
    At least 400-600W

    You may expect something like Xilence Performance A with a be quiet sticker...

    What do YOU expect when you see a 230VAC only product that just complies with EU regulations instead of an 80plus silver (115VAC) certified PSU?

    That's why it looked so familiar in those pictures.

    I expected/hoped for something better. I hoped for something with DC-DC or at least independent voltage regulation, also because be quiet! was talking about "Zero Load design supports Intel®’s Deep Power Down C6/C7 mode" which is probably not the case then.

    The efficiency is btw close to 80PLUS Bronze 230V and close to other 80PLUS Bronze 115V PSU's tested on 230V.

    We're talking about System Power things.

    Let me rephrase it:
    Those System Power things are targeted at System Integrators.
    Those guys like to use the cheapest things they can get their hand on - like this one or those Intercrap shit (like this SL-500)...

    The S7 series would have been good as a consumer series.
    But for system integrators it's just way too much for them - way too expansive, sadly...

    All they need to do is solder in a minimum load resistor, et voilĂ . It only has to provide a load of up to 1 A and there you go, quick & dirty solution. Efficiency be damned, we're going in cheap!
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Well yeah, but you can always hope. Lets hope for a new Pure Power with DC-DC then.

    Hmmm yeah, but that's gonna kill the efficiency at low loads. It's also easier and cheaper to only say it's compatible, while it's isn't.

    Anyhow picture:

    It's the System Power 8 400W, picture from Hardware.info, again.

    Pure Power L9 will have to be DC-DC, otherwise reviewers feedback will be really awful, I guess. However I don't have any information yet.
