“The Dark Power series has always been and will always be the maximum we are capable of. Be it cutting edge performance, virtually inaudible operation or state-of-the-art technology: The Dark Power series has it all.”
- Christian Rex, Head of BU PSU
The be quiet! Dark Power 13 1000W offers 80 PLUS® Titanium efficiency, virtually inaudible operation, and ATX 3.0 compliance for next-gen GPU compatibility.
Dark Power 13 1000W is certified with 80 PLUS Titanium and a money-saving energy efficiency rating of up to 95.2%. This provides lots of benefits for your high-end system, including less power consumption and an overall cooler and quieter operation. The standby drain is below 0.1 watts.
Dark Power 13 1000W is an ATX 3.0 PSU and comes with both native integration of the 12VHPWR connector for next-generation PCIe 5.0 graphics cards, and PCIe 6+2-pin connectors for support of current-gen GPUs. This makes the PSU extremely versatile and the perfect choice for present high-end systems and the ones to come.
Dark Power 13 offers 1000W of continuous power with 4 independent 12V rails. Even if the graphics card demands excessive power for a short time: Dark Power 13 1000W handles power excursions up to double its rated power with ease. This ensures reliable operation with the next generation of processors and graphics cards.
The improved tripod-mounted be quiet! Silent Wings fan enables maximum airflow and a virtually inaudible operation. This is thanks to its unique, airflow-optimized fan blade design along with an advanced fluid-dynamic bearing. A 6-pole fan motor ultimately makes for less vibration, super-long life and minimal power consumption.
The split fan inlet of the Dark Power 13 1000W is a custom-shaped funnel that increases airflow while reducing unwanted turbulence. The wire-free design inside allows the cool air to reach all components flawlessly which ultimately leads to a longer lifespan.
Dark Power 13 1000W is particularly suitable for overclocking. The overclocking key gives you full overclocking control by manually switching between the default four 12V-rail mode and the alternative massive
With an active rectifier and full bridge LLC technology Dark Power 13 1000W offers some of the most advanced technologies available, resulting in higher efficiency, better regulation and lower ripple noise for an incomparably
Only the best components are used in Dark Power 13 1000W. That is why we have exclusively built high-quality Japanese capacitors into the PSU chassis. They are rated to 105°C which ensures stability, reliability, and a long operating life.
Modular, sleeved cables of up to 120cm in length simplify component installation and reduce annoying clutter. This results in increased airflow and improved cooling in even the largest PC cases.
