This is going to sound like a stupid review...,
This review is from: Be Quiet Dark Power Pro 10 550W PSU (Accessory)
I am about to say something really stupid, but please bear with me. This is really quiet!
As the name of the manufacturer suggests, one of the priorities they have is to create kit which is quiet and oh my goodness have they achieved it. My computer used to be a tower used purely for gaming, but now its an HTPC and I rarely play games.
As a previous reviewer stated, it may sound silly getting excited about a power supply - but I had never considered that the noise that came out of my previous PSU (OCZ 700w) was loud. It was just the norm, same goes for the CPU fan that I had (OCZ Gladiator). Then I decided to get a closed loop water cooler (corsair H80i) and heard the difference it made. I realised that there was only one other fan in my system and that it had to be the culprit for the noise. I replaced my trusty OCZ (i know what you are thinking, its not often you hear "trusty" and "OCZ" in the same sentence!) with this PSU and I simply cannot believe how quiet this is. You can hear the corsair water cooling radiator fans at 600 rpm i.e. minimum rate, over the rest of the system. Its virtually inaudible!!!
Speechless, I am literally speechless. 11 stars out of 10. If the reliability of this unit is as good as the reviews say they are then I would have no problem recommending this to everyone and firmly believe it is worth every penny.
