Be quiet !, a well-known manufacturer of branded power supplies, is expanding its Dark Power Pro 11 family of three new models to include three earlier devices launched in May. The new models are designed for less demanding sets and feature 550, 650 and 750 W power.
A good power supply is the foundation for a proper computer operation, many of whom, unfortunately, are unaware of it, buying the cheapest model, and then wondering if the PC shuts down under load. It is always a good idea to buy branded equipment and Be quiet!
In May, the manufacturer introduced three models of the 850, 1000, and 1200 W models of the Dark Power Pro 11, which are designed for the most powerful computers, and now complement the three 550, 650 and 750 W models aimed at the weaker.
Although power supplies are smaller, their functionality compared to the more expensive models is on the same level. So here we have a modular cable management system, a temperature controlled fan and an overclocking key system. The power supply offers four independent 12 V power lines, and its efficiency with the 80 Plus Platinium certification is up to 94 percent.
It is cooled by the SilentWings 2 135 mm diameter fan. To reduce the noise produced by rotating blades, their shape was modified, and a modern 6-polar motor was used. In addition, the fan starts working at 220 RPM, and to prevent vibration from being transmitted to the computer’s enclosure, the power supply housing is equipped with rubber bands that suppress them.
Power supplies are equipped with top-notch components, including Japanese capacitors, which are high strength and are capable of operating at temperatures up to 105 degrees Celsius.
