be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W, review and analysis in Spanish
We start the day with the review of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W, a new power supply for the Pure Power family that promises performance, low noise and a relatively contained price. Compatible with new standards PCIe Gen 5 and ATX 12V 3.0obviously has the 600W 12VHPWR connector to bring to life NVIDIA’s next-generation graphics, as well as the efficiency certificate 80 Plus Gold.

Packaging and Accessories
The first step in the review of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W We give it to its packaging, an elegant black box that shows us the desEsports Extrasof the source on the front and its power distribution on the back.
Inside, we find the source protected by a bag of air bubbles and the wiring around it.
The accessory kit consists of the user manual, a pack of plastic ties to organize the wiring, the screws for its installation, the power cable and a pack of modular cables that we see below.
Fully modular cabling
The be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W offers fully modular wire-based cabling, except for ATX cable and 12VHPWR which come with a shield over the wires. We thus have the following cables and connectors:
- 1 ATX cable (24+4 pin) [54 cm]
- 1 EPS 12V (8-pin) cable [59 cm]
- 1 EPS 12V cable (4+4 pins) [59 cm]
- 1 PCIe Gen 5 / 12VHPWR (12+4-pin) cable [60 cm]
- 2 cables with 2 PCIe connectors (6+2 pins) [49 + 14 cm]
- 1 cable with 4 SATA connectors [50 + 15 + 15 + 15 cm]
- 1 cable with 2 SATA + 2 MOLEX [50 + 15 + 15 + 15 cm]
We must emphasize that the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W count with one 12VHPWR wire either PCIe Gen 5.0 600W, which allows the installation without adapters of a next-generation NVIDIA graphics card.
DesEsports Extrasof the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W
We continue the review of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W seeing how this offers a fairly conventional design. With a ATX-formatspecify some dimensions of 150 x 86 x 160mm (width, height, depth).
Inside, we find a fan be quiet! 120mm which promises to spin up to 2,000 RPM with a maximum loudness of 31.7 dB, although in practice we will not reach those figures. Of course, it does not offer a semi-passive mode as is so fashionable, nor is it necessary to rotate so slowly at rest that it is not audible.
While on one side we find a logo of the brand, on the opposite we find a sticker that informs us of the rail distribution of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W. this account with 2 12V rails of 46A and 42Awhich allow a maximum combined load of 83.4A and a consumption of up to 1000W. It is true that we must subtract the consumption of the rest of the rails, although it specifies that it supports peaks of up to 1050W without problems.
Connectors for modular wiring
The be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W It also has numerous connectors on the internal side for modular wiring, all well labeled and well organized, highlighting the latest generation 12VHPWR.
While, on the opposite side, we see the standard C21 power connector for power supplies, as well as the complete power supply off switch.
80 Plus Gold Certification
This model has the 80 Plus Gold energy efficiency certificatewhich guarantees good charging efficiency, although not so much at rest.
|Efficiency at 2% load||75.9%|
|Efficiency at 10% load||88.4%|
|Efficiency at 20% load||92.3%|
|Efficiency at 50% load||93.1%|
|Efficiency at 100% load||90.8%|
Interior of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W
We passed in the review of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W to analyze its interior and components. In the first place we are faced with a fan be quiet! 120mm QF2 up to 2000RPM, which runs at 12V with load control so it never hits its 31.7dB max.
The manufacturer chosen by the brand to bring this power supply to life is none other than CWT, a classic in the brand and in most brands that does not have its own manufacturing. We find a very well organized interior in which there are hardly any cables and where there is no lack of heatsinks, since they are quite numerous.
With a 12V dual rail design, it offers an LLC + SR topology, ie half bridge and synchronous rectifier, as well as DC-DC conversion for the 3.3V/5V rails. Also has japanese main capacitors signed by Elite with 470 µF, 400V and 105 ºC.
Our testing team is made up of the following components:
- Bench table Banchetto 101
- MSI MEG Z690 Unify Motherboard
- Intel Core i9-12900K processor
- MSI MEG CoreLiquid S360 Liquid Cooling
- G.Skill Trident Z5 RGB Memory @ 5600 MHz
- Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card
- Windows 11 Pro Operating System
Evidence of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W
As we have anticipated, the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W it never turns off its fan, but it is virtually silent when the computer is idle, so it is not a problem at all.
We have analyzed the stability of the voltages with Aida64 Engineer for the +12V, +5V and +3.3V rails. To do this, we have subjected the team to the stress test of this software with two load levels, without or with a GPU. As we can see, the voltage oscillation is within what the ATX standard sets, with averages very close to the theoretical value that allow a very tight consumption.
We conclude the review of the be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W highlighting that this is a very balanced power supply for those users who seek reliability, power, efficiency and highly value low noise. Let’s go in parts.
As for reliability, the platform designed by CWT for this model is really good, without going to excessively expensive components that increase its price. It offers power with versions of up to 1000W like the one we have analyzed, although we also have lower wattage versions, but in the higher ones, it has the 12VHPWR connector that allows modern NVIDIA graphics to be connected in the best possible way. It also offers good energy efficiency as guaranteed by its 80 Plus Gold certified, because although it is not the most efficient, it is not a bad thing. Finally, note that its fan always rotates at low revolutions and is therefore practically inaudible.
We can find the sale be quiet! Pure Power 12M 1000W from 90 euros for the 550W modelreaching the 165 euros for the 1000W model analyzed. They are really good prices for the latest generation models that have the 12VHPWR connector, being ideal for those looking for a very good product, but without excesses.
