We embrace Titanium-rated power supplies, yes we do. However recommending them to the avid gamer is just not completely appropriate as a recommendation, as really these PSUs are all about energy efficiency. If you game a few hours a day on your PC, you'll have gained a few bucks per year in energy saving compared to say a Silver or Gold certified model. However, if you are that guy that has a 24/7 rig active all the time, here's where efficiency matters the most and where we can recommend it, as at that point this PSU can even save and make you money over time. That's the honest answer and the conundrum you are facing. We'll plea one more thing in favor of titanium certified PSUs though, the more efficient often means the cleaner and more stable the power delivery is, they also run less warm (heat lost in a PSU is energy being wasted). Most platinum and Titanium PSUs are passive up to say 40% load, this feature however is a miss on this PSU series, as it's not passive in the sense of being a hybrid or something. So the fan will spin at all times, it's silent though, matching the brand name. While writing this I realized I do have one last point to make or better yet, a question to ask; be quiet!, where is the 12-pin power connector for the new GeForce RTX 30xx cards? Pricing aside, of course, this is an excellent power supply, we can find little that bothers us. You also receive a 10-year warranty with this product so to that extent it is guaranteed to be long-lasting as an investment. The Dark Power 12 is at a feature level that will appeal to many and from what we observe, quality hardware. Bulletproof, nothing to lose, I am Titanium.
