Be Quiet! Pure Power 9 CM 600 W (L9-CM-600W)

Introducing the Be Quiet! Pure Power 9 CM 600 W (L9-CM-600W)

The Be Quiet! Pure Power 9 CM 600 W (L9-CM-600W) is the latest version of Pure Power family. This series is quite fresh, its sales started on March 22nd, unfortunately due to reasons explained later this article was delayed. It is replacing the older Pure Power 8 CM models, made by HEC/Compucase, while this one is made by FSP Group. It is based on the Raider platform and bears 80 PLUS Silver (@115 V) certification as well as the Raider. In my opinion this is quite an improvement over the HEC models, though competition also was not wasting time and upgraded as well.

Be Quiet! covers this unit with 3-year warranty. The price is mostly the same as for previous models, at the moment it is about 2200 CZK or 79 Euro in Germany. At 600 W that still is within mainstream according to my criteria, though barely. Both FSP and Be Quiet! like many rails so the L9-CM-600W has two +12V rails, one for 32 A, other for 28 A (48 A/576 W combined). The power provided by minor rails is pretty much the ordinary for this platform, as you can see from the label.


Notice this unit has many safety certifications, as also checked by independent authority. According to Be Quiet!, it is equipped with full set of protections, including over-temperature protection. This may be the first unit based on Raider/Aurum platform which actually has OTP.

Packaging and accessories

The box itself is medium in size. The unit inside is only packed within a bubbled bag and covered with a sheet of carton. Cables and other accessories is placed next to it.


The front side shows a picture of the unit and reminds of the most important features. The back side then holds the power distribution table, the cabling specifications and some other talk. Nothing about the fan profile though.


As for the extras, we have a power cord, all the modular cables, than some screws, a manual and five zip ties. I think it’s worth half a point.
