be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2 Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅29-10-12

With this being our first be quiet! product review our expectations remained a mystery but we have heard good things about the brand and their portfolio of products and so such a venture is an intriguing one for us.

From the packaging right through to the product itself we have been impressed. Dark Rock Pro 2 is presented in a very professional manner and has also been given a supreme level of engineering which makes the build quality very good indeed. Having the name “Dark” as part of its name, this cooler naturally coordinates well with other hardware – some enthusiasts like to build a system so that the colour-scheme and general layout is pleasing to the eye, with Dark Rock Pro 2 this can be achieved.

In our performance related tests the Dark Rock Pro 2 achieved admirable results showing its worth against a plethora of popular rivals. Our cooler even managed to top the passive cooling charts by beating all other candidates and demonstrating that its design and materials are the very best a CPU cooler can offer.

Available for £60, Dark Rock Pro 2 is competitively priced. Other coolers such as NH-D14 and Alpenfohn K2 are in a similar bracket but be quiet!’s offering delivers the best price: performance ratio.

+ Looks great, co-ordinates with other hardware
+ Good quality engineering
+ Excellent performance
+ Low noise
+ Best passive cooler we have tested

- Installation takes a little longer
