  • Summary: It’s been a while since I’ve been this impressed by a CPU cooler; everything from the fit and finish to the performance was top-notch. Unlike many coolers that claim to be “quiet” or “silent”, this one actually lives up to its claim. I’d have to take this sucker into an anechoic chamber to even have a hope of hearing it.

Be Quiet! Dark Rock 2 CPU cooler review: cheaper Dark Rock Pro 2

13 May 2013
  • Excerpt: When Be Quiet! released the Dark Rock Pro 2, we were enamoured by it right-away. That high-end cooler cooled extremely well and was also very quiet. In our recent group test of 33 CPU coolers, when we switched to a new and improved method of test, the Dark Rock Pro 2 was once again one of the best coolers. So when Be Quiet! informed us that a more affordable version was on the way, we were of course very interested.

Be Quiet! Dark Rock 2 CPU Cooler Review

17 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Be Quiet! Dark Rock 2 CPU cooler is just £5 more expensive than its predecessor, coming in at £46 at the time of writing. We think given the additional performance and the fact this cooler still retains all the core features that make Be Quiet! coolers so desirable, that price is good. As we’ve seen the Dark Rock 2 is certainly a good looking CPU cooler. It is made with German quality and it oozes class.

be quiet Dark Rock 2 Heatsink

Ninja Lane
29 August 2012
  • Summary: We have noticed two key elements when it comes to designing a silent heatsink.  The first is surface area and in most cases this will dictate the size of a heatsink and how much heat it can handle.  The second is a complement of the first and consists of a well designed cooling fan to match the heatsink capacity and help facilitate the heat transfer.
  • Pros: Dark Tower Design, Silent 135mm Cooling Fan, Six Heatpipe Design, Thick Fin Radiator, Ornate Heatsink Cover, 180w Power Handling
  • Cons: Mounting system is cumbersome, Cooler could benefit from a second fan

be quiet! Dark Rock 2 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Our tests proved that the name of the manufacturer is in accordance with the product: the Dark Rock 2 is really quiet. It is actually the most silent high-performance CPU cooler that we tested so far. Although the be quiet! Dark Rock 2 doesn’t have the same performance level as the top performers we tested to date, it reached a better performance level than the other “extra silent” coolers to which we are comparing it.

  • Excerpt: July 20, 2012 by Lawrence Lee Product be quiet! Dark Rock 2 CPU Cooler Manufacturer be quiet! Street Price £50 inc. VAT Given our purview, we take a keen interest in PC components that are marketed as "quiet" or "silent." Sometimes we exercise a little extra scrutiny on products that include the words in the name. When a manufacturer goes one step further and calls themselves something like be quiet!

  • Excerpt: On this side of the pond be quiet isn't as popular a company as many others here. I have seen the name out and about on forums and in various news blasts, but I never really took a deep look into this German manufacturer. One immediately assumes that with a name like be quiet, silence is the main thing addressed with all of what they sell that is actively cooled.

Recension: be quiet! - Dark Rock 2 (0)

6 December 2013
  • Summary: Vår slutsats av be quiet! Dark Rock 2 är att prestandan inte övertygade tillräckligt för prisklassen. Byggkvaliten är dock klanderfri och liksom med  Dark Rock Pro 2 är den stilren. Den medföljande fläkten bygger på företagets patenterade Silent Wings 2-fläktar och har mycket hög kvalitet. Under hela varvtalsområdet upptäcktes inga oljud och karakteristisk luft turbulens hölls också i schack.
  • Pros: Hög kvalitet, Enkel installation, Mycket tyst fläkt
  • Cons: Man kunde fått mer för pengarna

be quiet! Dark Rock 2

28 August 2013
  • Summary: Mit dem neuen Dark Rock 2 liefert be quiet! einen leistungsfähigen Tower-Kühler zum überschaubaren Preis ab. Darüber hinaus sprechen auch Verarbeitungsqualität und Lautstärke für den Kauf unseres Testmusters. Das sichere Montagesystem und der hochwertige Lüfter runden das Gesamtpaket perfekt ab. Kurz gesagt: Preisbewusste High-End-Anwender können bei diesem Prozessorkühler bedenkenlos zugreifen! Christoph meint: Klasse High-End Prozessorkühler!
  • Pros: saubere Verarbeitung (Kühlkörper und Lüfter), sehr gute Leistung, leiser PWM-Lüfter, sichere und einfache Montage, passt auf alle gängigen Sockeltypen, Lieferumfang, fairer Preis
