be quiet!’s latest addition to its PSU portfolio is the Dark Power Pro 12 series of power supplies. Available in 1200W and 1500W models, the Dark Power Pro 12 power supply is the “most technologically-advanced PSU be quiet! has ever built”.
Certified with 80Plus Titanium efficiency, the Dark Power Pro 12 PSUs drain less than 0.1W on standby. With up to 94.9% of energy efficiency, these power supplies waste less power, reducing its operating temperature and noise.
The funnel-shaped fan opening has been redesigned and the air intake side received the mesh treatment, increasing the PSU’s airflow. The six 12V rails can be manually switched into a “massive” 12V through the overclocking key located in the PSU, allowing you to further overclock your system components. These power supplies use Japanese capacitors rated for operation at 105º and feature a modular design to reduce the clutter inside the case where it’s installed.
The Dark Power Pro 12 PSUs features fully digital control of PFC, LLC+SR/12V, resulting in higher efficiency, improved regulation, and low ripple noise, and a 135mm Silent Wings 3 fan that uses a 6-pole motor, allowing it to spin up to 2600RPM, with a maximum rated noise output of 31.5dBA.
The Dark Power Pro PSUs are compliant with Intel C6/C7 modes and feature OCP, OVP, UVP, SCP, OTP, and OPP. There are 17 cables with up to 120cm bundled with each Dark Power Pro 12, featuring a ATX-motherboard 20+4-pin connector, an 8-pin CPU connector, a 4+4-pin CPU connector, 10x PCIe 6+2-pin connectors, 16x SATA 15-pin connectors, 8x PATA 4-pin connectors, and 2x FDD (floppy) connectors.
