There’s no beating around the bush when it comes to the Dark Rock Pro 2, it’s a HUGE cooler. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as the larger size allows for a much larger surface area and increases cooling efficiency.
The cooler itself is fantastic to look at, every single detail screams German design and engineering. From the dark nickel plating to the metal caps on the end of each heat pipe there’s nothing I could fault with the cooler – nothing felt ‘unfinished’ with this product, nothing at all.
The performance to noise ratio on this cooler is by far the best on the market in its class of high performance coolers.
Be Quiet state that the Dark Rock Pro 2 features:
No Compromise Silence and Performance
The virtually silent Dark RockTM Pro 2 CPU Cooler puts our famous anti-noise technology where it counts: at the heart of your system. Its double tower, double fan design is perfect for overclocked systems and the most demanding multi-graphics platforms.
Twin quiet-optimized SilentWings® 2 fans with PWM function and seven ultra-high performance heat pipes generate massive 220W TDP cooling capacity and strikes the perfect balance between intense cooling and deep serenity. Special wave-contoured heat sink fins further minimize noise-inducing turbulence while maximizing heat transfer.
Dark Rock Pro 2: offering the greatest performance-to-noise ratio and highest reliability available.
• Very quiet operation
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 heat sink fins optimizes airflow and avoids noise generating turbulence.
• Highly effective cooling
Seven ultra-high performance heat pipes with an oxygen-free copper layer help to transport the heat directly to the optimal place of the heat sinks.
• First-class materials
Dark nickel-plated metal surfaces and a solid brushed aluminium cover. A stable back plate ensures secure attachment, even when the computer is being transported.
• Product conception, design and quality control in Germany.
• 3 years warranty
