Review on Cooler Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 42 min read
Hello, my name is Alexander, and I want to tell you about my new purchase. This time I bought a top-end, and the quietest cooler for cooling the Intel Core i7-7700k processor for overclocking to a frequency of 4.9 MHz. The model of this cooler is BE QUIET! DARK ROCK PRO4.
This cooler is delivered in a corporate cardboard box. On the box itself, we see the full model of the cooler, as well as the appearance of the cooler.
On the back of the box are the characteristics of this cooler.
The complete set of this cooler: manuals for installing the cooler, mounts for intel, amd sockets, thermal grease, staples for installing fans on the cooler itself.
Models of these fans: 1x Silent Wings 3 120mm PWM, 1x Silent Wings 135mm PWM.
Also with the cooler come the manual for installing the cooler in six languages: EN, PL, DE, RU, ES, FR.
Installed a cooler on my motherboard.
I recommend installing RAM in slots 2-4 before installing the cooler on the processor, so that later you do not have to disconnect the fan from the cooler itself. The distance between the RAM and the cooler fan is about 2 cm, taking into account that my RAM does not have cooling radiators. If you have RAM with cooling radiators, there is a possibility that the fan itself on the cooler will be right next to the RAM, this should be taken into account when buying this cooler.
This is how my finished computer assembly with this cooler looks like.
The results of this cooler: excellent, and a quiet cooler with maximum performance cools not worse than water cooling. A great solution for those who are looking for top-end cooling for their processor.
Also, the cooler easily copes with overclocking the Intel Core i7-7700k processor in tests, the temperature was no higher than 75ºC. The cooler itself has a 250 Watt heat dissipation and a very good air cooling system.
At the moment, I’ve been using the cooler for 4 months now, everything is working perfectly and quietly.
