be quiet! Announces System Power 9 CM PSU Family

be quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany since 2007, announces System Power 9 CM, an entry-level semi-modular power supply available in 400 to 700 watt models. The new cable-managed power supply series expands the existing System Power 9 range and features 80PLUS Bronze level efficiency up to 89 percent, providing solid performance and an extensive feature set. Combined with a great price-performance ratio and the added convenience of removable PCI-Express and drive cables, System Power 9 CM is a perfect component for cost-conscious system builders.

System Power 9 CM’s line-up is built with the latest technology and available at a competitive price, while maintaining the quality and reliability expected from a premium brand like be quiet! All models are 80PLUS Bronze certified and feature improved voltage regulation via DC-to-DC technology. Each System Power 9 CM power supply unit comes with a full range of integrated protection circuits, including over temperature protection (OTP), while a temperature-controlled high-quality 120-millimeter fan constantly cools the power supply at low noise levels. In comparison to System Power 9, the CM variant has a lower fan curve, resulting in less noise.

High performance and multi-GPU capability
Two independent 12 V rails ensure highly stable power output to all PC components. System Power 9 CM power supplies with 400 and 500 watts are equipped with two PCI-Express connectors, while the 600 W and 700 W versions offer four PCI-Express connectors, allowing system builders to use these power supplies for multi-GPU configurations.

The best choice for office and multimedia systems
Outstanding characteristics make System Power 9 CM perfect for cost-conscious system builders looking to build energy-efficient office, multimedia, or entry-level gaming systems. Thanks to its compliance with Intel C6/C7, ErP, and Energy Star 6.1 guidelines and its power saving technology, System Power 9 CM achieves a low standby power of less than 0.15 Watts. To help satisfy system builder aesthetics, the fixed 20+4 pin and P4+4 cables use black sleeves, while removable black low-profile cables for drives and PCI-Express expansion cards add a high-quality look to each power supply. The usual be quiet! quality workmanship is paired with a three-year warranty that completes each System Power 9 CM package.

System Power 9 CM is now available for purchase in Europe and Australia at an MSRP of €54.90 / £46.99 (400W), €64.90 / £57.99 (500W), €74.90 / £67.99 (600W) and €84.90 / £76.99 (700W).
