be quiet! Dark Rock Slim Review

Rating: 8.0.

be quiet! has always been well known for its high-performance air coolers, specifically within the Dark Rock range. It is from this lineup we have become familiar with huge, dual-fan coolers like the Dark Rock Pro – designed with both high performance and low noise output in mind.

The new be quiet! Dark Rock Slim, on the other hand, offers a lot of the more premium features of the Dark Rock Pro, but in a much smaller package – and with a price tag of £49.99, a somewhat more accessible price point. Can it still offer the same experience we have come to expect from the Dark Rock family?
