be quiet! may not be a name we know all that well here in America when it comes to power supplies, but in the European market they have really made a name for themselves and are planning to do the same here in the states. Not that long ago we took a look at the Dark Power Pro 10 from be quiet! and we were extremely impressed. While this was one of the top of the line units from be quiet! the unit we are taking a look at today is more mainstream. The whole idea behind the Pure Power L8 600W unit is to deliver an affordable unit that does not compromise on quality. This unit features an 80PLUS Bronze certification, a 120 mm silence optimized fan and of course the quality we expect from be quiet!.
