Is be quiet's Pure Power 600W PSU a 10?

Kilowatt class PSUs such as the Seasonic PRIME Platinum which Lee just reviewed are impressive and up to the task of powering the most powerful of systems but for most they are overkill.  For the majority of us, something in a 600W model will be sufficient for our needs as well as being more efficient.  A little while back [H]ard|OCP took a look at be quiet's Pure Power 10 600W 80 PLUS Silver modular PSU, the first be quiet! to meet their benchmarking table.  It operated quietly and it was handsomely built, however once they started testing the PSU simply could not take the heat.  If you live somewhere which never reaches 30C ambient this might be an acceptable solution but for the rest of us ... the review reveals a significant issue.

"This may come as a shock to you, but be quiet! power supplies are all about...wait for it...exceptionally quiet operation. However that is not the only virtue the Pure Power 10 series extols. be quiet tells us that this PP10 has "peerless dependability" and "best-in-class features." Let's see if we can set it on fire!"

Here are some more Cases & Cooling reviews from around the web:
