Last updated on September 17th, 2020 at 02:00 pm

Smooth, safe delivery of power – with the best possible efficiency at that price – is what we look for in a power supply unit. In an ideal world, they are easy to integrate and never seen or heard from again.

be quiet! Dark Power Pro 12 1500W (Titanium) Review

It has been some time since I have taken an in depth look at a power supply so when I was offered one of the new be quiet! Dark Power Pro 12 Titanium rated power supplies for review, I was excited to see what they had to offer in 2020.

It retains the Aura RGB lighting and OLED panel, too, so if you need to power a high-wattage system - perhaps with two RTX 2080 Tis running in SLI - this is both technically and aesthetically excellent.
