At the back of the box you'll find a diagram showing the types of cables used and the power output table.
All cables comes labelled to make installation easier, especially for the newbies.
The modular cable slot is also placed vertically to make cable management easier and reduce potential damage to the cables by bending side ways.
Testing & Conclusion
As Tech Critter do not own any industrial grade load tester to perform intensive tests on the power supplies on hand, we will be performing tests from the end user's angle. We've mounted the be quiet! Straight Power 10 600W on our Vector Bench Case and have gone through numerous tests which involves stress test and overclocking various hardwares i.e: Intel i7 4770K, Intel i7 4790K, AMD A10-7850K, AMD FX-8320E, AMD R9 290X, AMD R9 280X, Nvidia GTX 980, Nvidia GTX 970, Nvidia GTX 960, etc.
Glad to say that we did not encounter any issues throughout all the tests conducted - the PSU fan did a wonderful job not only on cooling but acoustic as well; no coil whine issue found when the system is stressed with stress test and benchmark utility.
Aside of the higher cost, we can't find anything bad of the be quiet! Straight Power 10. Really. Although there's no local distributor here in Malaysia for the brand, we would still recommend the be quiet! Straight Power 10 to enthusiasts who wants a power supply that is silent and reliable if there's a given chance to purchase one.
