The feature set of the Straight Power 11 isn't what you see on the outside, but what BeQuiet has engineered on the inside. The unit does a great job of improving on our past complaints with the Straight Power 10. It's fully modular, it incorporates all Japanese capacitors, and as a bonus it even improves on reliability.

Components/Build Quality: 10/10 (20% of the final score)
Like we previously mentioned, the build quality has improved with the Straight Power 11. Only the highest quality components have been used such as the Japanese capacitors and Silent Wings 3 fan. The wire free DC design really sets this unit apart. The chassis is high quality and the extra engineering towards cooling extends all the components longevity.

Value: 9.8/10 (20% of the final score)
