On March 9th, be quiet! will be expanding their Dark Power 12 power supply lineup to include new 750W, 850W and 1000W models, giving PC builders new options within the 80+ Titanium efficiency range. 

be quiet! already offer PC builders Dark Power Pro 12 models which feature 1200W and 1500W power ranges, though these power ranges are overkill for most PC setups. What differentiates be quiet's new Dark power 12 models is their lack of "Pro" status, as these models do not rely on digital power regulation to achieve their 80+ Titanium efficiency levels. To maintain their efficiency levels at their lower wattage brackets, be quiet! are relying on premium components and Japanese 105°C capacitors.

Like their Dark Power Pro 12 brothers, be quiet's lower wattage Dark Power 12 series will feature an "Overclocking Key", which will combine each unit's four 12V rails into a single high-power output. This option is ideal for heavy overclocking and gives users the option to operate their Dark Power 12 units as single-rail or multi-rail units. 

be quiet! will also be kitting these new Dark power 12 units with their "frameless silent wing 135mm fan", a patented design that makes the Dark Power 12 series more reliable and cooler-running than its predecessors. These fans are also designed to start up with low rotational speeds and ramp down at a slower than normal rate. Unlike many competing power supplies, the Dark Power Pro 12's fans do not operate with a stop/start mechanism, giving be quiet's units less fan stress in the long run.

When be quiet's Dark Power 12 series launches next month, it will ship with an extensive 10-year warranty.

Dark Power 12 will be available in retail from March 9 at a suggested retail price of $199.90 / £205.99 / €214.90 (750 W), $239,90 / £239.99 / €249,90 (850 W), or $279,90 / £269.99 / €279,90 (1000 W).

Considering the 80+ Titanium rating, I'd say that the pricing isn't awful. You pay through the nose for that feature.

There is a reason why most PSUs don't target such high efficiency levels.Quote

BeQuiet are not a cheap brand either. Their products are usually above average in quality, at least from my experience.Quote
