Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweatybrety Good temperatures but tricky to fit
Keeps my AMD 8350 at 31 while idle and 45 when under load. A little tricky to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeX Keeps its cool under load!
Looks good and does a great job of keeping your CPU cool no matter what the load. Fan seems to be quite and the CPU temperatures are kept very low, even when over clocking.
A little tricky to fit due to the size but seems nice and secure once done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlennB Performs well, silently
Really happy I opted for the be quiet! Dark Rock CPU cooler over others I was considering. It's really nicely designed and packaged and performs well -- keeping my CPU at 30-40 degrees with absolutely no noise at all.
If you're using a mini-itx board (as I am), then -depending upon the board layout- the chances are you'll need low profile RAM and a PCI-e riser (if you want to use PCI-e of course). I've got a Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI MB and the fan covers the PCI-e and RAM sockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeckulz What can I really say
Ive had this cooler going for 18 months now.
Today its 24 degrees c outside, 28 degrees in my house, and core temp is telling me my OC'd 2500k (4.8 ghz) is sat idling (with firefox, itunes, skype and steam) at 43 degrees c.
I can barely hear it (plugged in by PWM).
Even better VFM

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anon Solid, well designed and quiet.
Coolers like this always seem pretty expensive. If you're not an octopus its difficult to fit without an extra pair of hands.

Very large need to size your case with care.
