BeQuiet - Fantastic Support ( WOW UK SUP

I had recently been experiencing problems with my P7 850 PSU...
After lengthy emails with BeQuiet Germany, I sent pictures and videos to show the faulty PSU... ( it was agreed the PSU had Failed)
Germany support was good, very quick responses... BUT i needed the problem sorting out asap.


I was put onto their UK support chap "RAY" ( This is a new setup to provide Better & Faster support for the UK ) I must say this works well .

I delt with Ray from beginning to end & In my opinion Ray is an asset to the BeQuiet Company, he bent over backwards to sort my problem out, Between us I upgraded to the 1200 version...

Right 1200 W

I overclock at 4GHz - E8400
2 x XFX 5770 ( Crossfire )

This product has an overclocking key which works well...
The Rails are very stable and very close to being perfect when measured with a multimeter...

I must say this product is fantastic to the overclockers and games, I would hesitate to recommend the BeQuiet name to my friends...

Not impressed with BeQuiet!

Noise specs are meaningless. Noise is far louder than any if the specs could be. Noise is tonal in nature with a wide band of noise at 1kHz and peaks at slower frequencies too. Exhibits an electrical buzzing sound.

I was waiting to post a review until BeQuiet responded to my 3 contact attempts via their website, but having received nothing from then I can only give this product a very poor rating. Stead clear if this product and be aware that BeQuiet's support appears to be non-existent.

1200 watts of gaming power


I'm trying to hear the fan going in my BeQuiet Dark Power Pro P8 1200W Modular Power Supply... But I can't o_0

Seriously, I've had coolermasters/ enermax's/ antec's... you name it I tried a few of the so called great PSU's...

Then some 1 suggested this & I thought well with a name like that it at least might be quiet :p

The name doesn't do it justice, from the moment you get the box you know right there & then you made the correct PSU buy for your system...

I have to put me ear right up to it to hear it & thats something for a 1200 watt PSU let me tell you.

Build quality = even better than enermax my previous favourite psu maker.
Layout of the modular interface = great everythings easy to access etc...
Accessories = more than enough, in fact too much lol... you won't run out of cables for your sata devices etc...
Even throw in some little black cable ties & some nice neat velcro 1's too...

I now have a favourite PSU maker & I don't think I'll ever change now...
