Product Overview 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.

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 (free fan clips are included in the scope of delivery).
• Six high-performance heat pipes with copper lining and aluminium 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.
- 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.

Date Issued: 31st May 2016

The Intel Core i7-6700K has sated the appetite of enthusiast gamers since August 2015, but if a quad-core chip just doesn't tickle your fancy, you might have been twiddling your thumbs in anticipation of a new HEDT (High End Desktop) part.

Date Issued: 26th Aug 2015

Intel generally follows a tick-tock philosophy for new processor launches. The tick represents a shrinking of the manufacturing process - 32nm to 22nm, for example - while the tock is indicative of a new architecture based on the leading process of that time. This has been the case since 2007.

Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool and quiet The Dark Rock 3 is really good for the money. It's near silent and my i5 3570k overclocked to 4.2 Ghz is running at 26 degrees idle, around the same temperature as when using a h100i. I highly recommend this cooler to anyone who likes there PC to be silent. 08 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by the cooler keeps my workstation/gaming rig under 30 deg c idle and has yet to go over 60. (i7 4970k 4.2ghz) The "be quiet!

Answer: 
I believe it will fit however I advise caution, read the below

The BeQuiet website lists the heatsink dimensions as 160mm in height

The cooler Master Silencio 452 technical data on their site lists it supports
CPU coolers up to 158mm in height

You may wish to take the chance as the case is only 2mm short of cooler support. The case may allow for this small shortfall but bear this in mind.
