Today I'm putting the Listan be quiet Dark Power Pro 600W to the test and seeing how it does. The Dark Power Pro 600 or as Listan calls it the BQT P6 Pro - 600W is a Topower P6 based PSU with active PFC. As such it's only designed for use in the UK and EU.

Listan says that the Dark Power Pro 600 features "A new dimension of silence" and that it's "loud-less"? WTF? Do they use Babelfish to do translations or what?

The features are listed in four languages, German, Spanish, French and English. This just underlines the fact that this is a European PSU. Listed on the box are also the advertised rail amperages.

On the back of the box we see a listing of the cables along with a blurb about the PCB being fiberglass reinforced plastic and therefore being extremely durable.
