Hello everyone! :D

Im looking for an PSU for my next build, and two be quiet! units caught my eye.

The two units are:

be quiet! Pure Power 10 CM, 80+ Silver, 600W
be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM, 80+ Gold, 500W
They are both at the same price here. :pt1cable:

Here are the Pro's and Con's for the units:

--------------------
be quiet! Pure Power 10 CM, 80+ Silver, 600W

Pro's:
-Higher wattage.
-Better looking cables.

Con's:
-The orange accent on the fan placement doesnt look that good.
-Worse efficiency rating.

//////////

be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM, 80+ Gold, 500W

Pro's:
-Better efficiency.
-More reviews from the site Im buying my components.
-Looks better.

Con's:
-Smaller wattage.
-Way worse looking cables.
-Tiapo capacitors.
--------------------

My VS450 in my first build blew up. :gun:

I will use an Ryzen 5 1600X (the 2600 is almost 100$ more expensive here.) and an RX 580.

Thanks in advance!

SeaSonic units are generally more expensive here.

The only SeaSonic PSU that is similar at price with these units is the M12II EVO, but it has an old design. (Group Modulation, etc)
