Based in Germany be quiet! are a manufacturer of PSUs, coolers and case fans with a focus on the former. The product we have received from be quiet! today is the Dark Rock Pro 2 cooler their flagship model which promises ultra-high performance with virtually silent operation. Let’s find out if it achieves this goal…
Packaging and Bundle
The Dark Rock Pro 2 packaging is rather large and gives us a decent image of the cooler with a good amount of product information on each side. Then upon opening the box we find a smaller box with our bundled items as well as plenty of foam protection.
Bundled with the cooler we get installation brackets and items for socket 775, 1155, 1156, 1366 and 2011 as well as AM2/3/FM1/2. Also included is the manual for AMD/Intel systems and some thermal paste. Then pre-installed are two fans, the first is a 13.5cm model rated for 1500RPM. The second fan uses 1700RPM and is a 12cm model and air pressure on each can hit 1.82/2.1 mm H20 with airflow rated at 67.8/57.2cfm.
