    Leading the pack of Be Quiet! PSUs at Computex is the Dark Power Pro 850W, an almost completely modular 80 Plus Platinum-compliant PSU. The Dark Power Pro has a classy product-like feel to it, not coming across as a "component". Internally, the Dark Power Pro 850W uses a quad 12V rail design. The 24-pin ATX is the only fixed connector, leaving eight PCI-E power connectors in four sets, five sets of drive cabled (SATA/Molex), 8-pin EPS and 4-pin ATX, and four 2-pin voltage-controlled fan power outputs. The unit is cooled by a 140 mm fan, covered by a cool-looking grille with just parallel metal rods.

    80+ platinum, yet another certification that adds more money to the price of the unit then it'll ever save

    Not sure I'd like the idea of metal rods across the bottom. At least put a coating on them to help reduce vibrations and such.

    It looks like it's already got some sort of rubberized anti-vibration stuff on the edges. Also, I believe those bars are recessed.

    If your PSU is vibrating, something is terribly wrong.

    You're worried about a PSU creating to much noise by a company named "Be Quiet!"... :roll:

    EDIT: I bet that PSU isn't any louder than your generator on your boat.... :roll:
