Interior

Opening up the Dark Beret 1000W, the main feature that is immediately noticeable is the dark-coloured 135mm fan which features greater airflow at reduced noise levels, and is controlled automatically to adjust the speeds according to the temperatures and load levels. It is a dual ball bearing fan so we suspect it will be very quiet, particularly at lower RPMs. There really isn’t any such thing a silent fan, but at 135mm it should be pretty quiet, though we’ll see what happens when it ramps up under load during testing. The fan is slightly textured so it may collect dust over time, so be aware that a few shots of some compressed air once in awhile would be a good idea here, particularly if your case does not have a dust filter with a bottom-mounted power supply setup.

Removing the fan, we see a tidy layout, no cramped components, plenty of open space for airflow.  The heatsinks are a bit on the small side but the large fan, this will should help with heat dissipation and keep the unit cooler under load. The two primary capacitors are Nippon Chemi-Con, rated for 200V @ 1200uf @ 105°C, and it’s great to see such quality parts here.

The internals are well done but there are a couple sloppy spots that we noticed.

Let’s run some tests.
