Brushed anodized aluminum it is.

Awesome thanks. Great looking cooler if it performs as well as a few reviews I have seen I'll probably be adding it to my collection.

I,ve had this cooler for a few months now and it is fantastic, sure its very big but it looks so good....
I returned 4 'grinding' Corsair H100 and got this instead and it maybe is a 2 degrees warmer but its 4 times quieter, I run a i5 2500k at 4.8 and it keeps it at around 55 - 60'c ...
I also returned a Corsair psu because of noise issues and got a 'be quiet' psu , its almost silent even at full load and built to a much higher standard....
I can say enough good things about be quiet kit......

Nice, what region are you in? Germany? UK?
post #25 of 30
I'm in the UK. (rather be in California though....)

I do like Corsair products, its just I've bought a lot of there stuff that dosen't work as advertised and Ive returned 5 items in the last 5 months.
Be quiet gear is expensive but its such good quality.... I'm looking for a new case and it can be difficult due to the size of the cooler (166mm tall) but i think I'm gonna wait for the Fractal Desgin Arc Midi R2....real nice....
post #26 of 30
Do wait for the Arc Midi R2. I'm sure it will be worth it. Sorry you had problems with your Corsair products. I'm in the middle of RMA'ing 2 things right now.. and have two more that need to be RMA'ed. frown.gif I've quit buying their product.

Some think we should keep trusting Corsair.. I don't trust them anymore.

Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us. I got fooled 3 times but not again. smile.gif
post #27 of 30
Yeah I'm not sure i trust there gear either anymore...and rma'ing to the netherlands is crazy.....
post #28 of 30
Jeez that's a big cooler. I didn't think much of it looking at the picture of the box...but then you put it beside the D14. bigeyedsmiley.png

I'd be interested to see a review since it's quite similar to the D14. thumb.gif

So I got to bring one of these puppies home with me from CES:




The Dark Rock Pro 2 is from a brand called BeQuiet, who are based in Germany. They're an extremely popular European brand, but haven't yet entered the US market. This year that's going to change, as I spent some time with their US product manager Christoph Katzer, formerly of Antec and Anandtech, who is working to bring these products to the US market. At the tail end of CES he let me take home a few of the display samples that were no longer needed, including this monster of a CPU cooler.





The Dark Rock Pro 2 is a seven heatpipe dual tower design with a copper base and aluminum fins. Everything is dark nickel plated. It uses two BeQuiet branded fans at 120mm and 135mm (outer and inner, respectively) which were measured by eTeknix to be 26.4dBa in their review. It comes with mounting hardware for all current and recent Intel and AMD platforms. It also has 4.5cm of RAM clearance, so everything but the tallest DIMMs should fit (if your DIMM is more than 4cm high it's compensating for something).




Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The Dark Rock is gorgeous, with a very nice nickel finish and good overall aesthetics.


Performance reviews generally show it beating the Noctua NH-D14 in performance, generally falling into the range of the H100 in sheer cooling power, with comparable noise profiles. MSRP is unknown, but expected to be <$100.

Christoph couldn't give a firm US release date, but it should be coming soon.






Do you guys want me to review it? I have a Q9550 @3.7Ghz and low voltage, so not exactly a challenge for this monster, and I'm currently using a Corsair H50, so that's not much comparison either. If you want me to review it anyway let me know, and if you have any special requests as far as temperature comparisons go (IBT? Or Prime95? What settings?). I think this could keep my C2Q below 40C even at maximum load, so...
