    Exclusive competition for our HEXUS forum members.....



    Here’s an exclusive opportunity for you, our lovely HEXUS forum members, that is open to no-one else.

    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, here 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!
