The BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P10 550W is an attractively designed power supply, finished in a heavy duty paint which isn’t easy to mark. The build quality is exceptionally high, all the side panels utilise rubber elements to help reduce vibration when installed into a chassis.
The 135mm SilentWings 2 fan is an airflow optimised fan blade design which is said to reduce turbulence and noise emissions. It is mounted behind a black grill which is attractively designed.
One side of the power supply is honeycomb vented to improve air flow. There is a power switch and connector at the side.
The modular panel is neatly laid out, with the hard wired cable residing at the other side. The PCIe cable connectors are all positioned in a row along the top of the chassis, with the peripheral connectors running underneath.
The Pro P10 has four fan connectors to directly control chassis fans from the unit, a nice touch. The Overclocking Key (above) also plugs into the white port on the modular panel. A flip of the switch on the Overclocking key switches from the default four rail factory setting to a high performance single rail mode.
Above, the overview of the BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro P10 550W power supply. It can deliver up to 45A on the combined 12v+ rail.
