Today we are looking at the latest BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 10 1200W power supply, designed to target the ultra high end enthusiast audience with sophisticated SLI and Crossfire systems. We already reviewed the 850W model in the same range, so it will be interesting to see if the 1200W model can maintain the high quality we now expect.
The Dark Power Pro 10 1200W is a modular, 80 Plus Gold certified design designed for gamers who need as much power as possible for their ultra high end system build.
BeQuiet! are actually classified as the best selling manufacturer of power supplies in Germany, six years running, according to market data from GfK. The company have a simple policy – they focus on creating products which emit the minimum amount of noise. The latest ’10’ designs use a new power conversion topology which delivers 80 Plus Platinum and Gold certification, currently the highest standard for efficiency.
All these supplies are ErP 2013 ready meaning the standby power drain should be below 0.3 watts.
The company have released six Dark Pro 10 power supplies rated between 550 Watts and 1200 Watts. The 850W, 1000W are 80 Plus Platinum certified. The other supplies in the range are 80 Plus Gold Certified.
The new 10 range of power supplies also feature an ‘overclocking switch’ which allows the user to change between a single and quad rail configuration. BeQuiet! are using a large 135mm SilentWings 2 fan in the new range. This is a custom made fluid dynamic bearing model with a 300,000 hour lifespan.
