be quiet! Dark Rock Pro TR4 Review

Rating: 8.5.

As the ‘TR4’ part of the name suggests, the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro TR4 has been designed to work with Threadripper CPUs, something that wasn’t supported with the Dark Rock Pro 4. From the outset, the Dark Rock Pro TR4 shares a very similar aesthetic to the Dark Rock Pro 4 which we reviewed previously, and also shares a very similar price at £79.99.  Looking at both models side by side, it’s pretty easy to confuse them, but the biggest giveaway that one is TR4 socket-specific Is, of course, the massive CPU block.

We were very impressed by the Dark Rock Pro 4’s cooling performance and low audible noise, but as the TR4 version shares an almost identical spec list it will be interesting to see how it compares in our testing.
