Be Quiet! Announces Straight Power 11 Modular PSU Series

be quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for eleven consecutive years, announces its latest, most silent power supply, Straight Power 11. With its completely redesigned PCB, wire-free design on the DC side, an expanded power range with models up to 1,000 watts, and a modern topology using high-quality components, Straight Power 11 is a worthy successor to be quiet!'s premium power supply series.

The Straight Power 11 series uses be quiet!'s renowned Silent Wings 3 135 mm fan with a funnel-shaped vent that simultaneously provides excellent airflow and reduces unwanted turbulence. A 6-pole motor and fluid-dynamic bearings create both an extremely low noise level and the lowest startup rotational speed in the market - under 200 revolutions per minute. This fan is extremely silent, making semi-passive solutions unnecessary and ensuring constant cooling at a low noise level. Since fans are not the only source of noise in a power supply, high-quality capacitors are used to prevent high-frequency electronic noise emission and noise induced by extreme load changes (like, for example, from modern graphics cards) is also minimized.

Phanteks Revolt X and Revolt Pro Power Supplies Pictured

Phanteks at its 2018 International CES booth treated us with a big selection of new wares, beginning with the new Revolt X and Revolt Pro power-supply series. The Revolt X model on display is 1200W (model: PH-P1200PS). Revolt X are high-end, fully-modular PSUs, with cabling to power two individual systems. You get two 24-pin ATX cables, three 8-pin EPS, and a total of eight 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors. You also get a total of eight SATA power, three Molex, and one Berg. The power supply turns on when either of the two 24-pin connector shorts the power cable, and turns off when neither of the two is drawing power, so you get the freedom to use two individual machines within one case.

Under the hood, the Revolt X features a single +12V rail design, with a single 100A rail. The unit boasts of 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, micro-tolerance load regulation, a hybrid fan control (fan stays off below a temperature threshold); active PFC, and most common electrical protections, against over/under voltage, overload, short-circuit, and overheat. The Revolt Pro is the antithesis of the idea behind the Revolt X. While the Revolt X is designed to power two individual machines within one box, the Revolt Pro is designed to work in teams of two to power one machine, for redundancy and power output increase. You power two machines with one Revolt X (convenience, less clutter), while you power one machine with two Revolt Pro's (redundancy, more power).
