BeQuiet unveils new PSU range with updated fan at Multiplay i49

22 Flares 22 Flares ×

We love new stuff. For a major technology publisher like KitGuru, innovation is our meat, potatoes and chocolate ice cream dessert. We love it and can’t get enough!  That’s why we love companies like BeQuiet that make the effort to put new gear in front of gamers at events like Multiplay i49. What starts out as a quick look at a PSU, ends up with a potentially much more interesting glimpse of a new kind of fan. Watt else could we do, but pull out the DSLR and capture the powerful moment.

Every component manufacturer is facing the same challenge: How to cater to an audience which is highly focused on value, while at the same time avoiding brand dilution?

As KitGuru readers well know, BeQuiet is one of the world’s premium PSU brands – with a handy line in CPU and Chassis coolers.

From the time they first launched into the UK, BeQuiet has been able to command serious money for its high end products, and that has not changed.

But what can you do if you want BeQuiet’s design and manufacturing quality, with sizeable wattage, but you don’t have Dark Power Pro 850w money?

Enter the PowerZone line – as presented to the UK masses for the first time by Dan Reeves at Multiplay i49.

While the PSUs themselves seem ruggedly well built, we actually found ourselves focused on one small detail: The fan.

Without using a screwdriver and mass spectrometer, we can’t be 100% sure, but it does appear – at first glance – to be an evolutionary step forward on the Silent Wings 2 products that presently grace the BeQuiet line up.

Would that step forward be a BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 fan?

While the price might be a lot lower than a Dark Power Pro, the styling and packaging remain very attractive on the Power Zone range of power supply units. Glance inside and you’ll see the new fan. Hmm.

As Dan pointed to the ‘Fan’ header, we realised the internal fan is not something we’ve seen before

KitGuru says:  Well played to BeQuiet for bringing affordable big PSUs to town, these are likely to generate a lot of interest. It will be interesting to see if BeQuiet confirms the existence of a brand new Silent Wings 3 design at the heart of the Power Zone PSUs. Dan wouldn’t say a thing on the day, but we has our suspicions.

    Christ, this new setup will certainly make cable management a world easier. No mess of cables just sticking out.
    Love the new design. Will probably be finding one of there in my case, soon to come.

    LOL! So, it’s the fan that you’re most interested in? A bit of info on the PSU would have better served your audience, IMO.

    Just guessing, but if it’s a new fan on a cheaper series, it’s probably a cheaper fan too.
