by on11 January 2023

Coming in 750W, 850W, and 1000W versions

be quiet! has launched its latest, and first full ATX 3.0 compatible power supply series, Dark Power 13. To be available in 750W, 850W, and 1000W models, Dark Power 13 is the successor of the popular Dark Power 12 series.

As noted, all models of Dark Power 13 offer full ATX 3.0 compatibility for next-gen graphics cards, 80 PLUS Titanium efficiency, and an improved frameless Silent Wings 135 mm fan. All models also offer up to 600 watts of power on the 12VHPWR connector, while still offering four "traditional" PCIe 6+2 connectors for full graphics card compatibility.

Dark Power 13 features 80 PLUS Titanium certification (up to 95.8% efficiency) by implementing the advanced "Active Rectifier + Full Bridge LLC + SR + DC-DC" topology and a wire-free interior design on the DC side. For maximum reliability and signal quality from the four 12V rails, Dark Power 13 relies exclusively on premium components such as long-lasting Japanese 105°C capacitors.

A Silent Wings 135 mm fan is placed directly under a full mesh grill and surrounded by a funnel-shaped air intake for optimal air circulation and best-in-class cooling. This guarantees the components are optimally cooled even under extreme load.

Dark Power 13 series also features "The Overclocking Key", which allows user to change the power supply from multi-rail mode to single-rail mode with the flick of a button (it features four 12V rails which can be combined into a single +12V rail).

Dark Power 13 will be available in retail/e-tail as of January 24 at a suggested retail price of $289.90 / €294.90 / £289.99 (1000 W), $249.90 / €259.90 / £249.99 (850 W), $209.90 / €214.90 / £209.99 (750 W).
