BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 11

Of course if you have new cables then you need a power supply to plug them into, and the BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 11 is a great choice. The Platinum certification is vital for providing efficient power delivery even under hard loadings. The large Silent Wings fan which is decoupled from the main PSU chassis and thus quiet. Silence is something which I value particularly highly given how much of my life is spent sitting next to my system. If you've ever had a loud fan somewhere you know how frustrating it can be and too often power supplies don't pay as much attention to quiet operation as they should.

Unlike my previous V850 the Dark Power Pro 11 has the 24pin ATX cable hard wired. Although a fully modular PSU is nice, there is a level of reassurance that comes from the most important cable being bolted to the power supply. Even if it does mean the Cablemod 24 pin will be an extension rather than shining in all its glory. 850W is plenty for my current Z97 setup with a single GTX980Ti, but still providing plenty of headroom should I want to move to SLI in the future.

There is plenty of connection options on the business end of the Dark Power Pro. Two CPU outputs, four PCI Express ones, five Molex/SATA ones and four three pin fan inputs. At the bottom is the OCK switch which allows you to combine the four 12V rails into a single option.

If you just want to run with the Dark Power Pro 11 then the provided cables are of a very high standard with decent braiding and plenty of cable ties and velcro straps to keep everything tidied away. If you're short of back plate spaces then BeQuiet even provide a jumper enabling you to combine the 12V rails without needing to take up valuable space.

Very nice dude they certainly give the system a nice boost with a splash of color and make it look like a whole new systemQuote

There are some great aspects to the cablemod kits, for one they just arrive completed in the post generally the next day. And honestly i'd say that is their greatest asset along with relatively good choice and wide compatibility. They do look ok and actually are marginally better than the Corsair or Silverstone kits, but quality, that is a stretch, consistent at a push. Straight away on the header photo you can see through every piece of orange braid where it's been bent at the end to the black insulated wire. Neither the wire itself or the braid is anything remotely special. £70 for what is quite a small kit I wouldn't consider great value and I strongly dislike how all of their 6+2's are dual.

I think they deserve some level of praise for what they allow people to do with relative ease but not really when it comes to quality or value.

Quality is actually great and they fall in cheaper than the Corsair kits including the models with caps.

Kits come with single 8+2 and daisy chained versions. Any variances are to mimic the stock cables that came with the manufacturer kits. *edit* but you can buy single cables direct and even customise your own kits nowQuote
