This review is for the creme de la creme of the be quiet! Power supply series with an 80PLUS Platinum rating the Dark Power PRO 10 850 Watt PSU that is truly the best that the be quiet! company has to offer. It was commissioned to be made in the highly prestigious Seasonic power supply factory. One of the best power supply factories in the world. Other brands of the be quiet! line are commissioned by different fabricators and should not be compared with this product or this review as they are manufactured in other places and have a different sources and therefore may have different design tolerances and characteristics. This review is based solely on the be quiet! (BQT-P10-Unit) and they include the Dark Power Pro 10 series including the 1200 watt / 1000 watt and the 850 watt models that are all commissioned with the Seasonic manufacturing plant.

be quiet! is a new company to us here at ThinkComputers. We’ve seen their products over the past year, but finally caught up with them at CES and were rather impressed with what they showed us. Now we have some of their products in to test and to start things off we are taking a look at one of their latest power supplies, the Dark Power Pro 10 550W. This power supply features an 80PLUS Gold certification, semi-modular design, virtually silent operation and an overclocking key that switches between quadruple independent +12V rail mode and high-performance single-rail operation. be quiet! has really made a name for themselves in Germany let’s see if that will carry over to the US.
