be quiet! dark power 13 750W
be quiet! as a long-time power supply manufacturer and supplier since 2007, released its first full ATX3.0 compatibility power supplies with the Dark Power 13 series, the top-of-the-line power supply.
This new lineup of power supplies comes in three models with 750, 850, and 1000 watts. All models offer full ATX 3.0 compatibility for next-gen graphics card compatibility and an improved frameless Silent Wings 135mm fan while retaining the extraordinary 80 PLUS® Titanium efficiency and performance. Enthusiasts can rely on an Overclocking Key, which combines the four 12V rails into one with higher power output, ideal for overclocked processors or graphics cards.
Dark Power 13 includes full support for the ATX 3.0 standard, which observes the power specifications defined by PCI Express 5.0. Compared to ATX 2.X, which supports high load peaks but does not define a maximum above the nominal power of the power supply, ATX 3.0 defines clear target values – specifically, the PCIe connection for the graphics card must allow load changes of up to three times the power consumption. Dark Power 13 is designed to handle these extreme transient loads with ease. ATX 3.0 power supplies with 450 watts or more also require a new 12VHPWR connector, which can deliver significantly more power. All Dark Power 13 models support up to 600 watts of power on the 12VHPWR connector, while still offering four ‘traditional’ PCIe 6+2 connectors for full graphics card compatibility.
As with Dark Power 12, Dark Power 13 features 80 PLUS® Titanium certification (up to 95.8% efficiency) by implementing the advanced “Active Rectifier + Full Bridge LLC + SR + DC-DC” topology and a wire-free interior design on the DC side. For maximum reliability and signal quality from the four 12V rails, Dark Power 13 relies exclusively on premium components such as long-lasting Japanese 105°C capacitors. be quiet!’s innovative, a patented frameless fan is again used for Dark Power 13. A Silent Wings 135mm fan is placed directly under a full mesh grill and surrounded by a funnel-shaped air intake for optimal air circulation and best-in-class cooling. This guarantees the components are optimally cooled even under extreme load. An improved noise profile with a lower overall noise level makes the fan virtually inaudible while also offering sustained cooling.
As the successor to the award-winning Dark Power 12, all its beloved features have carried over to Dark Power 13. The Overclocking Key allows the user to change the power supply from multi-rail mode to single-rail mode with the flick of a button, increasing the PSU’s stability under extreme overclocking situations. The steel housing and a complete set of modular, black-sleeved cables match the high-quality components inside the power supply unit. Thanks to its high component quality and innovative cooling design, be quiet! offers a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.

80 PLUS® TITANIUM CERTIFIED
Dark Power 13 750W is certified with 80 PLUS Titanium and a money-saving energy efficiency rating of up to 95.8%. This provides lots of benefits for your high-end system, including less power consumption and an overall cooler and quieter operation. The standby drain is below 0.1 watts.
FUTURE-PROOF YOUR SYSTEM
Dark Power 13 750W is an ATX 3.0 PSU and comes with both native integration of the 12VHPWR connector for next-generation PCIe 5.0 graphics cards, and PCIe 6+2-pin connectors for support of current-gen GPUs. This makes the PSU extremely versatile and the perfect choice for present high-end systems and the ones to come.
THE NEW STANDARD OF POWER
Dark Power 13 offers 750W of continuous power with 4 independent 12V rails. Even if the graphics card demands excessive power for a short time: Dark Power 13 750W handles power excursions up to double its rated power with ease. This ensures reliable operation with the next generation of processors and graphics cards.
FRAMELESS SILENT WINGS FAN
The improved tripod-mounted be quiet! Silent Wings fan enables maximum airflow and a virtually inaudible operation. This is thanks to its unique, airflow-optimized fan blade design along with an advanced fluid-dynamic bearing. A 6-pole fan motor ultimately makes for less vibration, super-long life and minimal power consumption.
INNOVATIVE COOLING CONCEPT
The split fan inlet of the Dark Power 13 750W is a custom-shaped funnel that increases airflow while reducing unwanted turbulence. The wire-free design inside allows the cool air to reach all components flawlessly which ultimately leads to a longer lifespan.
READY FOR OVERCLOCKING
Dark Power 13 750W is particularly suitable for overclocking. The overclocking key gives you full overclocking control by manually switching between the default four 12V-rail mode and the alternative massive single-rail operation.
WORLD CLASS TOPOLOGY
With an active rectifier and full bridge LLC technology Dark Power 13 750W offers some of the most advanced technologies available, resulting in higher efficiency, better regulation and lower ripple noise for an incomparably
JAPANESE 105° CAPACITORS
Only the best components are used in Dark Power 13 750W. That is why we have exclusively built high-quality Japanese capacitors into the PSU chassis. They are rated to 105°C which ensures stability, reliability, and a long operating life.
HIGHEST CONVENIENCE AND BEST CONNECTIVITY
Modular, sleeved cables of up to 120cm in length simplify component installation and reduce annoying clutter. This results in increased airflow and improved cooling in even the largest PC cases.
