Last month, I had a look at a beQuiet Dark Power Pro 10 power supply on the
lower wattage side of the spectrum: the 550W. Well, today we're going closer
to the other side of that spectrum and will be reviewing the 850W.
On the front of the box, we're promised a virtually inaudible fan and efficiency
up to 94%. This unit also features beQuiet's "overclocking key",
which disables the OCP on the multiple +12V rails essentially giving us a single
The back of the box has some good information about efficiency, as well as
a realistic estimate (as opposed to some other brands) on how much money you'll
save with a more efficient power supply.
The back of the box also shows the customer what cables are included with
the unit. I hope my table is a little easier to read:

Unit Dimensions (L x W x H)

beQuiet also tells the user how large the unit is on the outside of the box.
At 190mm, the unit is a little larger than average, so this is good to know
if you plan on using this unit in a chassis that might not be able to utilize
a larger unit.
The box also has the DC output table on it.
