    Arrow BeQuiet Dark Power Pro 11 550W Review

    We've now seen two of BeQuiet's best in the form of the P11 1200W and 850W units. And while those units came in here and impressed us, this line doesn't stop at 850W. In order to get a full picture of the entire line, we need to go one step further and test the baby of the family... the 550W model. Let's see how it does.

    You'd have my vote, Wolf! If I lived in the US, that is.
    Nice review!

    How about introducing sharper standards for the top score on ripple? Some units are able to show less than half of the requirement these days. I mean, after the mythic level for regulation has been introduced...

    Post Comparison
    - Why?!
    It's not that it would make a difference at all or that you have any advantage at all in real life contitions (except maybe for some hardcore sub zero overclocking) beside that, there is no point about complaining if the ripple on the +12V is 25mV instead of 15mV, doesn't make a difference at all...

    Besides:
    @Oklahomawolf:
    *sorry, mixed it up*

    I do have to remove that same full point for connectors that interchange,
    Why did you do that?
    You actually CAN plug a CPU cable into the PCIe connectors and (mis)use it for another CPU connector. There is no problem with that at all, besides that being not really intended.
    Why remove a point for an interchangable connector, when it actually works and does NOT do any damage at all?!

    I can understand you when that interchangability would do damage because +12V and ground are upsidedown, but that is not the case here.
    +12V on the wrong connector is where +12V should be, so is ground...

    Man, so pricey! But really, in all honesty, I love the aesthetics of these units. EVGAs lineups are getting really old.

    I also think coffeejunkie may be onto something. A mythic level for ripple and noise is indeed a good idea.

    $130 for a 550W unit that isn't even fully modular?


    NOPE

    Do some computers not have a 24 pin atx power cable anymore?

    As well as Seasonic XPs: and as well as those latter, they will sell well.

    If you use it as a second PSU for power hungry rig, you can say so.

    Besides, it makes doing custom sleeving easier.
