    On with my entry:

    Though I do have at hand a spare be quiet! 430w L8, so would actually like to see how the 680w E9 fares against the 2 smaller units in terms of noise etc IMO of course, I'm not a reviewer LOL, so won't be pulling out a test bed.

    Current System: (Its my HTPC as the main rig is a WIP again)
    CPU: Core i3 2100
    CPU Cooler: Stock Intel HSF (Corsair H60 awaits install)
    Motherboard: Asus P8P67-M mATX
    RAM: Corsair 8Gb Vengeance 1600MHz DDR3

    We’ve teamed up with be quiet! and three lucky HEXUS forum members will have the chance to evaluate a be quiet! Straight Power E9 680W PSU

    We took the PSU for a spin, is our take… but we want to give you the chance to evaluate this high-quality PSU yourselves.

    So how do you get one of these PSUs for your personal delectation?



    It’s easy, because all we’re looking for is a detailed forum post once we’ve sent you it to you. Tell us:

    1. Your first impressions of the PSU
    2. Which PC you installed it in and did you notice the difference
    3. Some photos of it in use


    Best of all, you get to keep the PSU afterwards!

    So if you are interested, and why wouldn’t you be, please post below your system spec. and which PSU you've currently got and we will randomly pick three winners.

    To make sure it’s our dedicated HEXUS forum fans there are a couple of simple rules, however:

    You have to be an existing forum member to enter this (as of 13th April 2012)
    You have to have over 25 posts on the forum

    Good Luck!
    I'm not going to enter this competition as I have absolutely no interest in winning a power supply when my Corsair HX 550 is fine for me, however kudos to Hexus for the forum exclusive competition. It's much appreciated.

    While no doubt the competition has ceased I humbly submit any of the systems in my siggie or either of the two Ivy Bridge configs I plan to build in the next couple of weeks (disasters permitting). The Straight Power is similar to the wattage I'm after as I'm a PSU short to complete my intended builds.

    Congrats to the winners

    Thanks mate, I scrolled through the first couple of pages and then the last at the time of posting, must have missed it then, though I've had a read since and you are right, its on a separate page, just forgot to edit my post.

    Good luck to everyone! Congrats to the winners!
