be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 Features:

Immensely High Cooling Efficiency

  • Improved dynamic wave-contour cooling fins with small dots on the surface increase air circulation and contribute to high convection efficiency without raising overall noise
  • Enhanced double-tower layout offers reduced weight and enables high cooling power
  • Support of additional 120mm fan for extreme cooling performance (free fan clips are included in the scope of delivery)
  • Seven high-performance heat pipes with copper lining and aluminum caps carry heat to the optimal location on the cooling fins, maximizing heat conductance
  • The immensely high cooling capacity of 250W TDP offers low temperature even at peak performance
  • New arrangement of heat pipes enhances the cooling capability

 

Virtually Inaudible Operation

  • Two SilentWings® PWM fans (front: 120mm, inner: 135mm) with advanced copper core fluid dynamic bearing and dynamically-balanced impeller provide optimal cooling with deep serenity
  • Inner 135mm SilentWings® PWM fan features nine airflow-optimized fan blades and an innovative 6-pole motor for smoother operation and less vibration
  • Decoupled fan mount with vibration-isolating elements on the heat sink
  • Noise is at scant 26.1dB(A) even at 100% PWM function

 

Highly Compatible, Highly Functional Design

  • Square, single tower design saves space and supports four-directional fan mounting for best heat convection
  • Compatibility with all current Intel® and AMDTM sockets
  • Freely-selectable fan mount point is recommended for AMDTM users

 

Product Conception, Design, and Quality Control in Germany
