No Compromise Silence and Performance

Dark Rock™ CPU coolers have long been category leaders, and now the significantly upgraded Dark Rock 3 is even more powerful. This virtually inaudible single-tower CPU cooler puts famous be quiet! SilentWings® technology in your PC where it really counts. They are excellent for overclocked systems and demanding multi-graphics platforms.

  • Six high-performance heat pipes with copper lining and aluminum caps carry heat to the optimal location on the cooling fins, maximizing heat conductance
  • The extremely high cooling capacity of 190W TDP offers low temperature even at peak performance
  • New arrangement of heat pipes enhances the cooling capacity

Virtually inaudible operation

  • Improved 135mm SilentWings® PWM fan features:
    • nine airflow-optimized fan blades
    • innovative 6-pole motor for smoother operation and less vibration
    • dynamically-balanced impeller

  • Decoupled fan mount with vibration-isolating elements on the heat sink
  • Maximum noise is at scant 21.1dB(A) even at 100% PWM function

Fantastic cooler. 6/22/2020 3:50:26 PM

Pros: Silent running.

Beast of a cooler.

Sleek black if you like a low profile PC.

Cons: Hard to install (fixed in the new model, the Dark Rock 4).

Big. This thing is huge and goes over a ram slot, not important if you’re only using 2 slots of ram but is important if you’re using all 4.

Obviously doesn’t have RGB, so it won’t light up and wow your friends.

Overall Review: 9/10, missing a point for the installation.

Does not fit ASUS Z390 A mobo 4/22/2020 8:08:08 PM

Pros: Fun and easy to install

Cons: After install, the fan covered half of my ram slots and near impossible to get the top left 2 mobo screws and small power plug in.

Overall Review: 4 stars because it’s probably a great product, but disappointing it won’t fit on my mobo.

Excelent and silent cooler 11/11/2018 6:48:11 PM

Pros: Really quiet, works great keeping mi Intel 8700 cpu with low temperatures, I can hear the corsair fans in my case, except the silent wing, very efficient and also fair price, other coolers are about for the same amount with RGB but without the same performance

Cons: Little bit confused to install but nothing out of this world, maybe bulky, but after this I cant find any cons

Overall Review: Really recommended for a cpus non "K" like mine or ryzen

Great Cooler 8/23/2018 7:15:32 PM

Pros: -Clean, dark look
-Quiet fan
-Braided, blacked out cable
-Excellent temps on i5 4670

Cons: -AM4 adapter orientation causes the cooler to block 3 DIM slots for Corsair RGB height wise making the cooler unusable on new build.
