The most powerful variant of the Dark Power Pro model from Be Quiet will have a total of six +12V circuits. Five PCIe connectors (2x PCI-E 2.0 6+2-pin & 3x PCI-E 1.0 6-pin) should ensure the optimum power supply for tomorrow's high-end systems. The fan noise level will be very low for this level of performance, claims Be Quiet. Another feature of the Dark Power Pro model is its compact design, which allows installation in any ATX PC housing.
All the power supply units in the Dark Power Pro range are manufactured in accordance with ATX12V Version 2.2 and EPS12V Version 2.91 including 8-pin 12V connection specification. With its 3-minute fan follow-up control after computer shut-down the ECASO technology contributes to the longer service life of the components installed in the PC. Like the 750W and 850W models, the compact 1000W power pack provides variable voltage supply of 100 - 240 VAC and will become available in June 2007.
The new high-end power supply unit will be fitted with a total of 20 cable strands, of which 18 will be removable. Six separate 12V circuits each with 20A should ensure the optimum, stable distribution of the power requirements of a high-end system. Two 6+2-pin PCI-E II connectors and three 6-pin PCI-E connectors are provided for SLI and Crossfire graphics cards with Physics support. In addition, there is a P8 connector and up to twelve SATA connectors for the connection of external peripheral devices.
Besides ECASO, thermal electronics regulate the rotational speed of the power supply fan and up to three housing fans which can be connected via the power supply unit. Depending on the type of mainboard, the speed indicator signal of the fan cans be read out. Listan offers for all Be Quiet power supply series 3-year guarantee.
