Product Overview Straight Power 10 500W: World Class Quiet and Efficiency
be quiet! Straight Power 10 500W provides a new level of silent performance for systems that demand whisper-quiet operation and efficiency without compromising on power quality.

Improved cooling with use of a 135mm SilentWings® 3 fan with an advanced fan frame ensures operation that is extraordinarily quiet.

Improved power circuit technology delivers 80PLUS® Gold power efficiency (up to 93%) and stability unmatched in its class.

Powerful GPU support and reliability enhanced by premium 105°C-rated parts make this PSU a ‘Best Choice’ whether you are building a new system or seeking a better, quieter replacement for an existing system.

Virtually Inaudible Operation
• Installed SilentWings® 3 135mm fan includes a wide array of electronic and mechanical optimizations for best-of-class airflow with very low noise production, including:
- Unique airflow-optimized fan blade design reduces noise-generating fan turbulence.
- Advanced fluid-dynamic bearing with copper core provides for greatly reduced operating noise and super-long life.
- 6-pole fan motor with high-quality IC controller reduces electrical noise, power consumption, and vibration. Lower starting voltage of the fan reduces significantly the starting fan speed and noise level at low load conditions.
• Funnel-shaped fan opening of the PSU case is significant big and allows high airflow intake.
• SilentWings® 3 fan is decoupled from the PSU body with special mount, further reducing transmission of vibration and noise.
• Optimized PSU airflow design generates superior cooling at lower fan speeds and reduces turbulence around components, thus allowing even quieter operation.
• Variable fan speed is optimally governed to strike the best balance between proper cooling and deep quietness.

Energy Efficiency
• 80PLUS® Gold certification independently verifies the extremely high operating efficiency (up to 93%) of this design.
• High efficiency means money savings, because your PC draws less power from the mains to do its work. This means less waste heat, less cooling required, and overall quieter operation.
• Standby drain of less than 0.25 Watts (• Meets Energy Star 6.0 guidelines.
• Fulfils ErP 2014 guidelines.
• Zero Load design supports Intel’s Deep Power Down C6 and C7 modes.

• Improved integrated circuit power conversion design features Active Clamp and Synchronous Rectifier (SR) technology plus DC-to-DC voltage stepdown for amazing signal stability, voltage regulation (main output rails are • Premium quality capacitors rated to 105°C for maximum performance, reliability and operating life.
• Full suite of top safety protections defends against over-currents, over- and under-voltages, short circuits, overheating and overloads, thus safeguarding your valuable components.
• Four independent 12V-rails improve power signal stability.

Maximum Compatibility and Convenience
• Sleeved cable lengths up to 115cm allow for improved cooling and are perfect for large PC cases.
• Connectors are compatible with older components as well as those still on the drawing board.
• Individual P4 and P8 plugs on longer cables support all common mainboard types and allow routing behind motherboards for improved airflow.
• Two PCIe connectors for powerful multi-GPU configurations.
• Clearly labelled plugs and clever accessories promote simple installation. Features • Virtually Inaudible Operation achieved through a broad array of meticulous optimizations, including use of a be quiet! SilentWings® 3 135mm fan.
• SilentWings® 3 Fan features an advanced fan frame, an airflow-optimized fan blade, fluid-dynamic bearing with copper core and a high-quality 6-pole motor for less vibration.
• Funnel-Shaped Fan Opening of the PSU case is significantly large, enabling a high airflow intake.
• 500 Watts of Continuous Power with stable four 12V-rail design.
• 80PLUS® Gold Certification and up to 93% power conversion efficiency.
• Sleeved Cable Lengths for improved cooling and more attractive appearance.
• Product conception, design and quality control in Germany.
