DARK POWER 12

No Compromise Silence and Performance

The Dark Power 12 is the most efficient power supply series be quiet! has ever built. Featuring an unrivaled efficiency of up to 95.9% resulting in an 80 PLUS® Titanium certification, and fully digital control of PFC and LLC+SR/12V for Dark Power Pro 12, leading to a better regulation and lower ripple noise for the Dark Power 12 models. This makes the Dark Power 12 series a paragon of efficiency and stability. Next to an unmatched efficient operation, the patented frameless fan concept with a Silent Wings fan guarantees an optimized cooling effect and a virtually inaudible operation. The overclocking key allows to manually switch between multi-rail and single-rail operation. All these features make the new Dark Power 12 series the most progressive power supply be quiet! has ever built.

Dark Power 12

Features

Energy Efficiency

  • 80 PLUS Titanium certification with an extremely high operating efficiency of up to 95.9%
  • Saving power means saving money, but it also means less waste heat, less cooling required, and overall quieter operation
  • Standby drain of less than 0.1 Watts
  • Meets Energy Star 7.0 guidelines and fulfills ErP guidelines
  • Zero-Load design that supports Intel’s Deep Power Down C6 and C7 modes

Virtually Inaudible Operation

  • Installed Silent Wings fan includes a wide array of electronic and mechanical optimizations for best-of-class airflow with very low noise production
  • PSU case has a large funnel-shaped air inlet facilitating high airflow intake
