be quiet! may not be a very well known name in North America, but in the European market, and particularly in Germany, it’s an entirely different story; they’re industry heavyweights. With an established reputation in the power supply market, the company is looking to expand further west, particularly in North America, and from what we’ve seen so far with their products, they appear to be on the right track.
We came away impressed with a couple previous be quiet! power supplies we’ve tested, and today we’re focusing on a power supply that’s a bit more robust in its goals, looking at the kilowatt range of the market and targeted to enthusiasts and gamers who don’t want to compromise quality.
The be quiet! PowerZone 1000W features stunning styling, fully modular design, and quiet operation. Priced at $189 and 80Plus Bronze certified, can the performance measure up?
Let’s take a closer look at the PowerZone 1000W and see if it can meet be quiet!’s claims and our expectations.
