Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

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.

Reviews
be quiet! Dark Rock PRO 4 Dual Tower CPU Cooler, 7 Heatpipes, 120mm+135mm Silent Wings PWM Fans, Al/Cu, 250W TDP is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. Does a fantastic job taming my 9900K which can be quite a toasty chip! It's easily the quietest cooler I've used! My Cryorig R1 Ultimate is much louder! Even under full load in a stress test this thing is whisper quiet. Temperatures in Linpack Extreme [30GB RAM stress level with RAM running at 3200 16-18-18-36 1.35V] maxed out at 94C but averaged about 87-88C. It's called Extreme for a reason as it puts insane and unrealistic loads on your CPU. Very few, if any, stress programs will put this much load on your CPU. This is the absolute worst case scenario! With IntelBurnTest [Maximum stress level] it maxed out at 74C! This just goes to show how insane Linpack really is. IntelBurnTest is a bit more forgiving but still an unrealistic load. During games I am anywhere between 40-60C. Usually 40-50C but it can hit 60-ish sometimes. The reason I have only gave it 4 out of 5 stars is because it's so awkward to install. I have read that this is actually an improvement over the previous version lol. Here is what makes it awkward and how they could improve it (there is TL;DR at the bottom): 1) Mounting arm is not attached to the base plate so you need to sit the cooler on the CPU and line up the mounting arm with the screw holes on the bracket. To improve it they could just attach the arm to the base plate so you're not messing around with it. At the least they could change the little notches on the arm so it easily aligns. Oh and you need to try do this without moving the cooler which will slide about because of the thermal paste! 2) It took a few tries getting the screws into the mounting arm/bracket because the screw kept falling off. Maybe my hands are just too big but I couldn't really use them to get the screw to sit in the hole. If the screws were held in place on the arm with a spring it would it so much easier. 3) Attaching the fan is awkward!!! This was actually the hardest part believe it or not. One fan is already attached but you need to attach the second one because it sits over the mountain arm and screws. Sliding the fan in between the two metal fin stacks was easy but getting the hooks on them was difficult. I could get the bottom side done but getting the top one was a nightmare. I ended up having to remove my entire motherboard from the case just to get the fan on! If the hooks were easier to get in and had a bit more flexibility it would seriously improve installation. TL;DR - don't try install this cooler with your motherboard in the case. It was a nightmare. The easiest way to install it is removing the motherboard so you have a lot of space because it is just way too awkward to do inside a case. The fact that I have to do this is just a huge hassle. Thankfully once it's on you really shouldn't need to take it off for a long time. All I can say is that I dread when the time comes to clean out my PC and I have to remove this thing. In fact I probably won't even bother. If anyone from Be Quiet is reading this please make a revision. It's just some small simple changes that would make the cooler perfect. If you want to know how to make a cooler with good installation then take a look at the Cryorig R1 Ultimate. It's a breeze to install that. The Dark Rock Pro 4 performs much better and is quieter but is a nightmare to install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended with one HUGE reservation The Dark Rock Pro Dual Tower CPU Cooler is good looking and efficient, my BIOS reports CPU temperature as <40 degrees Celcius. It is acceptably straight forward to fit and it does the job. THE RESERVATION It is ENORMOUS; and I wanted to fit RGB Memory. In its standard configuration the cooler may cover Memory slots on the Motherboard, in my case two. To fit the RGB {deeper} memory modules I had to reverse the rear case fan and the cooler's fans and add extra exhaust Fans to the top of the case -- the cooler still covers one slot, even so. However: my solution works, everything stays cool and the computer works.

Questions & Answers

RAM Compatibility

I apologise in advance, I can&rsquo;t find dimensions. Aorus gaming 7 motherboard Corsair Vengeance RGB LED 16GB DDR4 2666 Memory Kit 2x8GB I want to ensure the RAM will fit under this fan with no major issues. Many thanks
Asked by: Zorodek
Zorodek, Only if your Memory Slots are 85mm or more from the CENTRE of your CPU. If they are not, you will need to carry out extensive Case/Cooler modifications. {I had to do so.} Even after modifications; RGB Memory will only just fit UNDER the outside EDGE of the Pro 4 Dual Tower Heat Sink/Fans with a couple of millimetres to spare. It will not fit under the main body of the heatsink.
