Straight Power 11 PSUs use an FSP platform that's currently only available to be quiet!. Besides the high soldering quality and clean design, what catches our eyes most is FSP's choice of bulk capacitors. We're not used to seeing bulk caps with 3000-hour lifetimes, even in higher-end PSUs. It's much more common to find 2000-hour caps. A number of polymer caps on the secondary side, along with electrolytic caps from reputable brands, are a good indication of this platform's expected reliability over time.

Here are some photos showing the PSU’s major parts.
