We were huge fans of be quiet’s Dark Power Pro 10 power supplies, but since they have a high price tag many people will not get their hands on them. Be quiet! has responded to this and at Computex they were showing off a new power supply series. The Power Zone series will be a lower price point, but still keep many of the same features as the higher-end Dark Power Series.
These units will feature a reinforced 12v rail, SilentWings 135mm cooling fan and will be backed by a 5 year warranty. The units are 100% modular as well so you only use the cables that you need. You will also notice 3 inputs for fans. Be quiet! has a “cool off” feature on the units that keeps the fan running for 3 minutes after you shut your computer down to ensure everything cools down to a safe level.
When it comes to the modular cables they are individually sleeved, which has become very popular over the past year. The Power Zone units are 80PLUS Bronze certified and will be available in 650W, 750W, 850W and 1000W wattages.
Be quiet! says they will be availble in August with a street price starting at “below €100″.
