Listan informed me about their upcoming be quiet! Dark Power Pro 1000W power supply.
This unit promises to be silent and features six +12V circuits along with five PCI Express connectors (2x PCI-E 2.0 6+2-pin & 3x PCI-E 1.0 6-pin). Two 6+2-pin PCI-E II connectors and three 6-pin PCI-E connectors are provided for SLI and Crossfire graphics cards with Physics support. In addition, there is a P8 connector and up to twelve SATA connectors for the connection of external peripheral devices. The firm says this model is specially designed for the 4x4 AMD processor architecture and for server use.
Besides being quiet, this unit also features a compact design. Most of the higher Wattage power supplies on the market are a few centimeter bigger than regular power supplies, making it hard or sometimes even impossible to install them in your case without making modifications. Listan states that this 1000W PSU should fit in any ATX case.
All the power supply units in the Dark Power Pro range are manufactured in accordance with ATX12V Version 2.2 and EPS12V Version 2.91 including 8-pin 12V connection specification. With its 3-minute fan follow-up control after computer shut-down the ECASO technology contributes to the longer service life of the components installed in the PC. Like the 750W and 850W models, the compact 1000W power pack provides variable voltage supply of 100 – 240 VAC.
The Dark Power Pro 1000W unit will be launched at Computex 2007 and will become available in June.
