Conclusion

The latest entrant into the Dark Power Pro 11 ranks is a 550W supply that will service mainstream builds looking for quality at a lower price point.

The drive to greater energy efficiency has ensured that power-supply units have improved over time. You'd have to go a long way to find a bad one.

But separating the wheat from the chaff in the premium space requires considerable effort, and PSU manufacturers go about the task in different ways.

For be quiet! this means focussing on excellent build quality and low-noise operation across all loads. The latest entrant into the Dark Power Pro 11 ranks is a 550W supply that will service mainstream builds looking for quality at a lower price point.

Yet the very nature of 80 PLUS Platinum-rated supples makes them expensive, with the reviewed model coming in at £115 including VAT. Folks pursuing high-quality build-it-yourself systems face a choice at a particular budget: go for a higher wattage variant imbued with lesser features or, like the review unit, consider sensible wattages with excellent performance to boot.

High on performance at a suitably premium price, the Dark Power Pro 11 550W, backed by a five-year warranty, is recommended to single-GPU PC builders looking for an impressive supply.
