be quiet! Dark Power 13 850W PSU Review – Impressive Efficiency, Dead Silent & Decent Performance

Box & Bundle

The box follows the typical lines of the brand. It offers adequate protection, and the bundle is rich, including Velcro straps, zip ties, and fixing bolts for mounting the PSU on the chassis. There is also an OCK slot bracket with a switch and an OCK jumper, both having the same functionality: they combine all 12V rails into one. This helps you prevent system re-starts under overclocked conditions.

The exterior design is nice, to my eyes at least, and the build quality is top. It would be great though if the fan’s protection grille was less restrictive. The same goes for the exhaust grille. The unit’s dimensions are large by today’s standards. Still, every ATX-compatible chassis will easily accommodate it.


Modular Cables
Description Cable Count Connector Count (Total) Gauge In Cable Capacitors
ATX connector 20+4 pin (600mm) 1 1 18-22AWG No
4+4 pin EPS12V (700mm) 1 1 16AWG No
8-pin EPS12V (700mm) 1 1 16AWG No
2x 6+2 pin PCIe (600mm) 2 4 16AWG No
12+4 pin PCIe (600mm) (600W) 1 1 16-28AWG No
SATA (600mm+150mm+150mm) 2 6 18AWG No
SATA (600mm+150mm+150mm+150mm) 1 4 18AWG No
SATA (600mm+150mm) / 4-pin Molex (+150mm+150mm) 1 2 / 2 18AWG No
AC Power Cord (1330mm) – C13 coupler 1 1 18AWG

The number of EPS, PCIe, and SATA connectors is adequate, but I cannot say the same for the 4-pin Molex connectors. There are only two, while most PSUs come with four, especially in this capacity range. The cable length is satisfactory, and the distance between the peripheral connectors is good, at 150mm. Lastly, the 12VHPWR cable is set for 600W power output.
