Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2 CPU Cooler Review

Rating: 8.5.

Since their release of the Dark Rock series of CPU coolers, Be Quiet! has made quite an impact on the high end CPU cooler market.  Their products have a reputation for combining fantastic appearance with great performance.  We have looked at a number of their products in the past, all of which have won awards.

Today we are going to look at the latest addition to their CPU cooler range, the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2 which is a refreshed version of the existing Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro which we reviewed here.  This replaces the old model as the flagship of the Be Quiet! range with a few updates including an improved mounting system and larger fans.


  • 135mm inner and 120mm front SilentWings fan with PWM function for optimized fan speed throughout the entire working range provides the perfect balance between superior cooling and quiet. The specially developed wave shaped contour of the heatsink fins optimizes airflow and avoids noise generating turbulence.
  • Seven ultra-high performance heatpipes with an oxygen-free copper layer help to transport the heat directly to the optimal place of the heatsinks.
  • Dark nickel-plated metal surfaces and a solid brushed aluminum cover. A stable backplate ensures secure attachment, even when the computer is being transported.
  • 3 years warranty.

    Their coolers are so underestimated. for an overclocker and enthusiast they are my first choice. their fans are worth at least £15 of the price, as they are basically silent.

    My friend has the thermaltake frio and they cost their manufacturing costs by using realy cheap, and loud fans.

    Great review, id like to see more bequiet reviews.

    I love their coolers too. I have the original and its still working great. their fans are expensive but worth every penny. only cooler I might contemplate over this would be the D14 from noctua, but id propably replace the fans.
