Product Overview No Compromise Silence and Performance
Dark Rock™ CPU coolers have long been category leaders, and now the significantly upgraded Dark Rock Pro 3 is even more powerful. This virtually inaudible double-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 Pro 3 offers top performance-to-noise ratio and the highest reliability available. Improved cooling efficiency (250W TDP) and really silent operation (only 26.1dB(A) at maximum speed) mean this cooler strikes the perfect balance between cooling and serenity —truly silence and performance without compromises.

Immensely high cooling efficiency
• Improved dynamic wave-contour cooling fins with small dots on the surface increase air circulation and contribute to high convection efficiency without raising overall noise.
• Enhanced double-tower layout offers reduced weight and enables high cooling power.
• Support of additional 120mm fan for extreme cooling performance (free fan clips are included in the scope of delivery).
• Seven high-performance heat pipes with copper lining and aluminum caps carry heat to the optimal location on the cooling fins, maximizing heat conductance.
• The immensely high cooling capacity of 250W TDP offers low temperature even at peak performance.
• New arrangement of heat pipes enhances the cooling capability.

Virtually inaudible operation
• Two SilentWings® PWM fans (front: 120mm, inner: 135mm) with advanced copper core fluid dynamic bearing and dynamically-balanced impeller provide optimal cooling with deep serenity.
• Inner 135mm SilentWings® PWM fan features nine airflow-optimized fan blades and an innovative 6-pole motor for smoother operation and less vibration.
• Decoupled fan mount with vibration-isolating elements on the heat sink.
• Noise is at scant 26.1dB(A) even at 100% PWM function.

Product conception, design and quality control in Germany
• Winner of the prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2014.
• Compatibility with all current Intel® and AMD™ sockets.
• Completely dark nickel-plated heat sink.
• Brushed aluminum top cover with high-grade diamond cut finish.

Ideal for:
• High-resolution gaming and multimedia.
• Overclocked systems.
• Demanding graphics applications. Features • Top performance-to-noise ratio with 250W TDP at max. 26.1 dB(A).
• Seven high-performance heat pipes with copper lining maximize heat conductance.
• Two SilentWings PWM fans (front: 120mm, inner: 135mm) with advanced fluid dynamic bearing.
• Inner 135mm SilentWings PWM fan features nine airflow-optimized blades and smoother six-pole fan motor.
• Support of additional 120mm fan for extreme cooling performance (free fan clips included in the scope of delivery).
• Special wave-contoured fins minimize noise-inducing turbulence and maximize convective cooling.
• Dark nickel-plated double-tower layout.
• Compatible with Intel® and AMD™.

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.
