Peak Performance, Legendary Cooling

Dark Rock Elite offers unprecedented performance and cooling power with cutting edge fan technology and an iconic design. Join the Elite.

  • 2 Silent Wings 135mm PWM fans for maximum air pressure and perfect airflow
  • Innovative front fan mounting system for maximum usability and RAM compatibility
  • 7 high-performance heat pipes for immensely high cooling power
  • Quiet Mode for virtually inaudible operation and Performance Mode for extraordinary cooling performance via speed switch
  • ARGB LEDs for great visual effects
  • Special black coating with ceramic particles enables perfect heat transfer and elegant look
  • Unmistakable, beefy design makes for an eyecatcher in any system

Dark Rock Elite features 7 high-performance copper heat pipes and 2 Silent Wings fans, specially designed for maximum air pressure and perfect airflow. As a result, this high-end cooler always keeps your CPU at peak performance, especially in heavily overclocked systems and demanding workstations.

2 Silent Wings 135mm PWM fans provide maximum airflow for unprecedented cooling. Although designed for performance, the fans are virtually inaudible at regular speeds. In Quiet Mode, the maximum noise is a mere 25.8dB(A). This is achieved with advanced fluid-dynamic bearings and smooth 6-pole fan motors.


Thanks to a rail system

The front fan can easily be adjusted in height, making Dark Rock Elite compatible with almost any configuration. Adjusting the fan is a breeze: thanks to the innovative rail system, the fan position can be altered in 5 steps.


Make it the cooler you need

The Speed Switch allows you to choose between 2 modes, each affecting the maximum fan speed and PWM curve. The Quiet Mode provides a maximum fan speed of 1500r/min and is the perfect choice for super-quiet builds. The Performance Mode allows the Silent Wings fans to spin with up to 2000r/min and unleashes Dark Rock Elite’s full power.


A design that speaks for itself

The top cover features ARGB LEDs that light up in endless colors, which can be configured with any ARGB controller. Combined with its distinctive design, Dark Rock Elite becomes the highlight of any system and is especially well suited for exclusive showcases. The special black coating with ceramic particles not only adds a visual highlight to the air cooler: it also enables a perfect transfer of heat.


Unbelievable Cooling Power

Thanks to a nickel-plated base, Dark Rock Elite is compatible with liquid metal thermal grease such as DC2 Pro. The properties of liquid metal compound combined with Dark Rock Elite allow high-end CPUs to perform at even higher levels.

"Dark Rock Elite proves what we are capable of as a brand. The name 'Elite' says it all: if you're serious about PC building, you can't go past this high-end cooler. As one of the best coolers on the market, Dark Rock Elite is a milestone in the history of be quiet!"
