be quiet! Straight Power 10 700W Power Supply Review

be quiet! Straight Power 10 700W

Performance: 9.8/10 (40% of the final score)
Performance was rock steady on this unit. I did not encounter any issues with reliability or performance throughout testing. The innovative fan design kept the unit cool without being loud.

Features: 9.5/10 (20% of the final score)
The Straight Power 10 has an interesting feature-set. The real highlight of the unit is the innovative SilentWings fan and the chassis design. The fan is designed for high airflow while retaining a quiet user experience. However, I really would have like to see more in that regard. Many competitors have been offering switches to lower fan usage entirely on a unit. That's something that was interestingly overlooked on this unit.

Components/Build Quality: 9.5/10 (20% of the final score)
Build quality was great on the Straight Power 10 unit. The chassis' for the be quiet! range have always impressed me and this one is no different. Everything feels high quality, from the chassis, to the fan, to the cables, it all is above average. My only complaint with the unit is the inclusion of the Teapo capacitors. I feel bad harping on them, they really are not bad capacitors. However, with many competitors now utilizing Japanese capacitors, I have to make light of the situation.

Value: 9.6/10 (20% of the final score)
At the time of writing, Amazon has the be quiet! Straight Power 10 700w listed for $114.90. A competing EVGA 750w G2 comes in at $109.99 from Amazon. That's a small difference in price a Gold rated unit. I think the be quiet! unit is great and depending on your use case, it could easily be the best choice.

Final Score 9.64


Let's get straight to the point, the be quiet! Straight Power 10 has been a great unit. I would not consider it in the same league as some of the best unit's we have reviewed, but it is definitely not a slouch either. I would have liked to see upgraded capacitors in the unit. I highly doubt the Teapo's would ever be an issue, but I like the peace of mind. The unit performed admirably and I really appreciate and respect the attention be quiet! gives each of their units. If you are looking for a top-notch performer without going for the Dark Power Pro I highly recommend you check out the Straight Power line.
