But, in the grand scheme of things, the BQ mounts are among the better designs. Mount a Zerotherm ZT-10D on an AMD just once and your entire perception of "tricky" will change forever tongue.gif

The bq mounting essentially is borrowed from Scythe and it works fine, no doubt. Compared to other high end solutions it's definately one of the worst though. Again that doesnt mean it's total s**t wink.gif

Prolimatech, Thermalright (for the HR22/Archon X2/ Ven X) and even Deep Cool/Alpenföhn, Thermaltake, Cryorig, Silverstone, the newer Scythe coolers and others essentially all use the same mounting principle as Noctua with slight variations.

I haven't mounted a BeQuiet! but mount looks to be basically the reverse of most other mounts... Isn't is basically mounting motherboard onto cooler instead of of mounting cooler onto motherboard?

So instead of running screws from cooler into mount & backing plate on motherboard... BeQuiet runs screws from backing plate on motherboard into mount on cooler. Would seem a little more hassle but not all that big a deal.

I'm only guessing, but it should fit. I only know the NH-D14 would fit, and the Dark Rock Pro 3 does not seem to be wider than that.

I wonder if there is any hope of finding one of these in Australia...

Hey,

A little more time, I guess latest in the middle of the year. Sorry for not being faster, but you will be able to buy them soon smile.gif

Hey all good, I just really like the look of them and I reckon they'd do alright in a future build or two smile.gif so I went looking and found nowhere to buy them tongue.gif

Here's another review of the Dark Rock Pro 3.

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/bequiet_dark_rock_pro_3_review/1

I'm surprised that it gets beaten by the NH-D14 which is now a 4 years old cooler.

Bear in mind the fans on the NH-D14 were run at 12V, while the fans on the Dark Rock Pro 3 are being controlled via PWM by the mobo. So it's not really a fair test.

It does give you some idea though. The Dark Rock Pro 3 is silent if you allow automatic PWM control while the NH-D14 is pretty loud at 12V.
