Great PSU on a budget


Use of cheap capacitors

This power supply is extremely silent, and delivers on overclocking, but I am disappointed in the use of cheap capacitors for the main PSU. This could cause issues in the future or even inhibit overclocking headroom. I was able to reach 4.5 GHz no problem, but this may affect a higher clock or stability long term.

Nvidia GTX 1060-1-970-80

There is often a miss conception you need a high wattage power supply for certain parts. As you can see I have a GTX 1060, and have a lot of headroom before even hitting the Pure Powers threshold. This power supply had steady voltages across each rail, and really looks great. If orange isn’t your look they offer a black ring version of the same power supply. I really appreciate the sleeved cables for the hard wired motherboard cables, I would have liked to see every modular cable sleeved for that nice cohesive look. The Pure Power 600W was able to provide continuous clean stable power for my overclocking, and I would highly recommend this PSU for anyone on a budget. You can buy the be quiet! Pure Power 600W right now from the be quiet! NewEgg store for $50.00 and it easily earns the Pure Overclock Editor’s Choice Award!
