Inside the Box

The packaging for the Pure Power L8 is rather simplistic as well. Aside from the bubble wrap, only the cardboard protects the contents inside.

The Pure Power L8 500W has a semi-gloss black finish on it.

This side of the power supply features the I/O specification label and serial number.

The other side has the Be Quiet! name stamped in it.

Towards the back, we find a honeycomb mesh grill with AC input and on/off rocker switch.

The Pure Power L8 500W is a non-modular unit, so there isn't much going on up in the front. There is a small area of perforation though to aid in heat dissipation.

Be Quiet uses their own Silent Wings fan to provide the cooling for this power supply.

Included with the Pure Power L8 500W is an AC input cord, zip ties, mounting screws and user manual.
