Can anyone point to a review of the unit?

Was looking @ this :
http://www.bequiet.com/en/powersupply/240

Which class it falls in in terms of reliability and Quality ?
How reliable is this PSU and the manufacturer ?
How quick/reliable their RMA ?

System it will go in:

3930k @ 4GHz
Asus X79
16GB 2400MHz
2TB
GTX 680 FTW

Thanks in Advance

You'll be fine. Bequiet isn't very well known by many so don't be surprised to see people come in and say to not buy it. I'm not sure I would buy it as it only has a 2yr warranty and can't seem to make up its mind about how many PCIe plugs it has. ("Equipped with four PCI Express (1x 6+2 pin and 1x 6 pin") You might want to keep looking but that PSU should be fine.

That's a tough one because there don't seem to be any reviews out there. Tom's PSU article from a while back indicates BeQuiet (German) designs the PSU and it's built by FSP. But if this company is specializing in quiet operation, you'd think we'd see more reviews out there.

Two questions I'd have regarding the consideration of this supply:

"Why aren't review sites touching these?"
"Why isn't this line of power supplies listed on the BeQuiet sites product page any longer?"

Is there a reason you're after this PSU in particular?

On their website (my link) It says:
◾2x PCI Express (1x 6+2-pin and 1x 6-pin).

Makes sense.

Also, glad I checked out their site. They have an interesting small form factor PSU in the SFX 350W. This would definitely help with space in an HTPC build. You'd think more companies would start designing these smaller PSUs and marketing them to consumers.

The () part I quoted is also from your link. It's farther up then where they did list it correctly. It's the last sentence right before they show the four badges. (80 gold, SLI, ATI, AMD game.)

Again, I've read reviews of them and they are ok. I personally would rather save the money and get a better known 80bronze that has the longer warranty. Not because I want the warranty, but because it shows the company will stand behind it. For longer then two years...

Considering you're having a hard time getting a response, there must not be too many people out there using BeQuiet supplies.

You could be the pioneer for us on Tom's!?

No for some awkward reason the item got lost in post and I got a refund!
Waisted 7 days in chase.
Got a nice Antec(Seasonic S12) 620 instead :) 
Also the 3930k Gaming project has been abandoned due to lack of fund.
I guess all that happens... happens for a reason :)

True. Too bad it never made it though. I was looking forward to hearing about the performance.
