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.

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.

be quiet! Dark Rock TF, Top Flow Dual Tower CPU Cooler, 6 Heatpipes, 2x 135mm PWM Fans, 220W TDP, for Intel/AMD CPUs is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review Very good but for my system it required some "massaging" to get it to fit properly
Date published: 2017-10-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great part super service Will definatley use again 5 star service..very satisfied
Date published: 2016-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and ultra quiet. Really impressed from the get-go with this cooler, from the presentation and build quality to its performance. Looks really nice and feels like a perfect fit for my m-atx build in a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv. Currently I have it cooling a 4670k @ 4.4ghz, on the desktop it sits around 25°C and didn't see it go above 49°C when playing the Witcher 3! Night an day different in terms noise against my old h80, can't really hear it even at max rpm. It also provides cooling to the ram modules and the m.2 ssd which is great too. As for installation, looking around some reviewers had me concerned about the mounting system, trying to tighten the little nuts from the top which looked super awkward. But HiTech Legion's video showed me how it was meant to be done and it was extremely easy to install. Highly recommended for anyone who desires silence while maintaining a decent overclock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Cooling but difficult to install I purchased this as my H60 was not cooling my CPU efficiently. This is one of the best CPU coolers I have used, first time using bequiet and they do not disappoint in the quality. Although it was difficult to install, I put the bolts the wrong way so it wasn't connecting to the motherboard correctly - if you buy this, check you done it correctly! Be aware it is quite large and just fits in my case. If you're looking for performance and silence as it says on the box, this is the CPU cooler you want!

Ram clearance

I have a Gigabyte GA-990X-GAMING sli motherboard. Will this block any of the ram slots when fitted. I'm using corsair vengeance pro ram. Thanks
Asked by: Sofala
should be but it depends on the orientation of the cooler, id recommend low profile ram to be safe

Would this fit an Aorus z390 Extreme motherboard?

I'm thinking of pairing this with a Gigabyte Aorus z390 Extreme motherboard. Would the cooler have clearance considering the z390 extreme has some big VRM heatsinks?
Asked by: Glennmartyn
Hi, Unfortunately, we will not test these two products together so we would not be able to guarantee what the clearance would be, if any. We do apologise for this. Kind regards,

Does it support AM4

On Be Quiet! website, it states it does support AM4, but on the spec section, it doesn't state it. Can you confirm if this one does? Or is it an older version of it?
Asked by: panda986
Good Morning, Yes, this should support AM4. Kind Regards
