be quiet Dark Rock 3 Quiet CPU Cooler, BK018

be quiet’s Dark Rock 3 is one of their top tier CPU coolers that provides excellent cooling at very low noise levels.

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.

Dark Rock 3 offers top performance-to-noise ratio and the highest reliability available. Improved cooling efficiency (190W TDP) and very quiet operation (only 21.1dB(A) at maximum speed) meaning this cooler strikes the perfect balance between cooling and serenity — true quietness and performance without compromises.

Features

  1. Top performance-to-noise ratio with 190W TDP at max. 21.1 dB(A)
  2. Dark nickel-plated single-tower layout
  3. Six high-performance heat pipes with copper lining maximise heat conductance
  4. 135mm SilentWings PWM fan with nine airflow-optimised blades
  5. Support of additional 120mm fan for extreme cooling performance
  6. Compatible with Intel and AMD CPUs

Extremely high cooling efficiency

  • Improved dynamic wave-contour cooling fins with enhanced cooling area and small dots on the surface increase air circulation and contribute to high convection efficiency without raising overall noise.
  • Support of additional 120mm fan for extreme cooling performance (extra fan clips are included).
  • Six high-performance heat pipes with copper lining and aluminium caps carry heat to the optimal location on the cooling fins, maximising 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-optimised fan blades, innovative 6-pole motor for smoother operation and less vibration, dynamically-balanced impeller and advanced fluid dynamic bearing with copper core.
  • Decoupled fan mount with vibration-isolating elements on the heat sink.
  • Maximum noise is at scant 21.1dB(A) even at 100% PWM function.
