Excerpt: Be Quiet! has been a market leader for PC power supplies in Germany for seven years straight and they are bringing their top-of-the-line Dark Power Pro 10 series to North American markets. The Dark Power Pro 10 series includes six different models ranging from 550W all the way up to 1200W. The focus of the Dark Power Pro series is “ no compromise silence and performance ”.
Summary: There is no argument that the Dark Power Pro 10 850W is an amazing product. The excellent all-around performance and astounding quality could entice many enthusiasts. However, the company clearly needs to improve the availability of their products in North America and their retail prices ought to be reduced in order to become competitive.
Summary: I have never been one to get too excited about doing a power supply review nor have I been one to get excited about the performance of a power supply. Reasons being if you get a good quality one and stay away from the ‘el cheapo’ ones you are good to go. Well, in most cases anyway. But from the moment I opened the box of the be Quiet Dark Power 10 my mindset changed. Never have a seen a power supply that comes with as many extras as these.

Summary: It is very clear that be quiet! is trying, with the Dark Power Pro 10 series, to create the most flawless and complete PC power supply series available on the market today. The cable configuration of the 850 W is the most complete possible, allowing you to install three high-end video cards out of the box. The single/multiple rail switch puts an end to the endless discussion of which configuration is better: you simply choose which one you think is better.
Excerpt: Last month, I had a look at a beQuiet Dark Power Pro 10 power supply on the lower wattage side of the spectrum: the 550W. Well, today we're going closer to the other side of that spectrum and will be reviewing the 850W.
Conclusion: be quiet!'s newest range of premium power supplies are the Dark Power Pro 10. Spanning from 550W to 1,200W and certified to either 80 PLUS Gold or Platinum efficiency levels, the 850W Platinum model, as reviewed here, represents cutting-edge technology in a market that can be slow to innovate.
Excerpt: BeQuiet! are well known in enthusiast circles as the purveyor of class leading fans, having diversified their product portfolio into power supplies and CPU heatinks. Today we are looking at the second power supply in their latest flagship range, the Dark Power Pro P10 850W.
Conclusion: The Dark Power Pro from Be Quiet is a pretty solid package. It’s got good rails with an excellent efficiency rating as well as being almost completely silent making it an excellent choice for those trying to assimilate their PC into their lounge entertainment area. It does have a couple of niggles with the 12v not being the best, and the price being a little high but the full feature set more than makes up for the price with the 12v rail being far from the worst out...
Pros: Looks great, Stable and tight rails, Excellent efficiency, Modular cabling and noob-friendly labels and colour coding
Cons: 12v rail isn’t as impressive as we’d like, A bit expensive for some
