54 Flares 54 Flares ×

be quiet!’s Dark Rock series of coolers has fared well in a fearsome market. In previous generations, a strong balance between noise output and cooling performance has made them desirable products. Can the German company repeat its success with version three of the dual-tower Dark Rock Pro CPU cooler?

Fastening a pair of the company’s highly-regarded SilentWings fans to a sizable dual-tower heatsink, be quiet! is aiming to win over enthusiasts with the Dark Rock Pro 3’s silent operation and worthy cooling performance.  And speaking of cooling performance, be quiet! rates the Dark Rock Pro 3 for up to 250W of heat dissipation.

With seven 6mm heatpipes, wave contour aluminium cooling fins, vibration-isolating elements, and a dark black finish, does the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 offer the balanced performance that will make it sought-after to enthusiasts and gamers?

    What a fantastic cooler. I dont mind their fitting methods, they are never as good as noctuas, but the dark rock coolers are sadly underrated in our circles. they are fantastic, and very low noise.

    I will be ordering this one. I dont like the noise of Corsair’s all in one coolers, last one I got I had to replace both fans, which is extra cost on the already high pricing.
