DARK ROCK PRO 3

No Compromise Silence and Performance

The significantly upgraded Dark Rock Pro 3 CPU cooler puts famous be quiet! SilentWings® technology in your system where it really counts!

Featuring a front 120mm SilentWings® PWM fan and an inner 135mm SilentWings® PWM fan with vibration-reducing six-pole motor, dynamic wave-contoured cooling fins and seven high-performance heat pipes, this double-tower cooler is excellent for overclocked systems and demanding multi-graphics platforms.

Dark Rock Pro 3 offers top performance-to-noise ratio and the highest reliability available. Immensely high cooling efficiency (250W TDP) and virtually inaudible operation (max. 26.1dB(A)) mean this cooler strikes the perfect balance between powerful cooling and serenity!

Dark Rock™ CPU coolers have long been category leaders, and now the significantly upgraded Dark Rock Pro 3 is even more powerful. This virtually inaudible double-tower CPU cooler puts famous be quiet! SilentWings® technology in your PC where it really counts. They are excellent for overclocked systems and demanding multi-graphics platforms.

Dark Rock Pro 3 offers top performance-to-noise ratio and the highest reliability available. Improved cooling efficiency (250W TDP) and really silent operation (only 26.1dB(A) at maximum speed) mean this cooler strikes the perfect balance between cooling and serenity —truly silence and performance without compromises.
 

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
