be quiet! Dark Rock 3 CPU Cooler Review

TweakTown Rating: 94%Manufacturer: be quiet!





Just like with any be quiet! cooler we have received in the past, the Dark Rock 3 also comes in a black box with a grey stripe to the left denoting the coolers classification. On the front here, we see the cooler above the naming and the 190W TDP rating shown in a large font. At the bottom, we even get to see five features that would make us want to purchase this cooler.




The right side of the packaging explains the applications of this design and also covers the virtual inaudibility of it, its effective cooling, use of high-end materials, and concludes with a notation of the three-year warranty. At the bottom, we see various awards from their previous samples, and two of our awards are visible.




The back offers a little about be quiet! before we see the two renderings of the cooler with features being pointed out. Nearer to the bottom, we find a condensed specifications chart along with a look at the fan hub and its six pole design.




The last panel covers what we saw on the opposing panel; however, this time it is in three other languages than the two on the other side. Outside of that, we again see the TDP rating and we are also given the site address to look at their site for more in-depth information on this Dark Rock 3.




Opening the box to remove the cooler and hardware, we find the Dark Rock 3 surrounded in dense foam on five sides. The front is left open while the sides, back, and the top and bottom all have foam around the cooler. Behind the cooler, the hardware is slid in inside of a box to keep things from banging around during shipping. While there has been some issues with shipping previously, this time the Dark Rock 3 arrived right the first time in perfect condition.
