World exclusive: I reached out to be quiet! a few weeks ago to see if I could get myself a new PSU, but once I started looking at their offerings on the chassis, CPU cooler and fan side of things, I got excited. The company asked if I wanted the rest of their line up, so I happily agreed.
We are going to be building a new PC inside of the Silent Base 800 chassis from be quiet!, as well as powering it with the Dark Power Pro 11 1200W PSU, which is the German-based company's latest and greatest power supply.
The Dark Power Pro 11 features a 135mm "virtually inaudible" SilentWings 3 fan, and is built for high resolution PC gaming and multimedia users, multi-CPU based server systems, 3D CAD systems and the usual video and image editing machines. Multi-GPU systems with NVIDIA SLI or AMD Crossfire VGA cards can also pick up the Dark Power Pro 11 1200W, as it will handle all of those types of builds without breaking a sweat.
We have another unit headed to Chad, our usual PSU Editor, but for now we'll show you around the PSU.

There's plenty of PSU connectivity for your countless HDDs, fans, and VGA cards.

We will be building our system in the coming weeks, using two NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X cards, and hopefully some other goodies if they get here before Computex!
