Be Quiet Dark Power 850w

Introduction

There are many PSU companies out there, from well known ones like Coolermaster, Corsair, Hiper and Enermax, to some more obscure ones like Ikonik, Silver Power and InWin; here at XSR we’ve reviewed units from all of them. Today I’m checking out one from another relatively unknown company, Be Quiet. Being closely knit with gaming peripheral makers Revoltec gave these guys a good head start in our books here, but how will the unit stand up compared to the myriad of PSUs we’ve reviewed recently? Only one way to find out. Let’s get testing.
