be quiet! Dark Power 12 (850W) Power Supply Review

Ripple

Similar to everything we’ve seen before, the ripple scores provide no Achilles heel for the Dark Power 12 as not only are all the results well below the EU maximum of 50 but in the vast majority of tests, we’re only looking at single-digit results.

Admittedly, there was a mild jump seen on the 12V output at 80% load, but given that this practically halved for the test before and after, we’re willing to put this down as an aberration rather than anything to be worried about.

 Load (%)  3.3V  Ripple  5V Ripple  12V Ripple 
 2043.84.8
 405.24.211.2
 6057.211.2
 805.47.422
 100710.610.8
