Superior heat dissipation

With 6 high-performance copper heat pipes and a dense aluminum fin array, Dark Rock 5 offers robust cooling. A special black coating with ceramic particles enables perfect heat transfer from the heat sink to the air, keeping your system cool under the most intense workloads.


For high performance and virtually inaudible operation

The Silent Wings 4 120mm PWM fan features an advanced fluid-dynamic bearing, smooth 6-pole motor and airflow-optimized fan blades. Thanks to a tight tip clearance between fan blade and frame, the front fan provides extremely high air pressure. A funnel-shaped frame outlet enables ideal air distribution. The rubberized fan frame prevents vibrations from transferring to the heat sink, reducing overall noise.


Designed for all kinds of RAM and VRM coolers

The Dark Rock 5's asymmetrical design and heat sink cut-outs increase RAM and VRM cooler compatibility significantly and enable limitless memory height. Optionally, a second fan can be installed at the exhaust for an extra performance boost, making Dark Rock 5 a versatile marvel.


Installation is a breeze

Installation is easier than ever with the Dark Rock 5. Thanks to its convenient, preinstalled mounting bridge and a firm yet gentle fixing method, cooler attachment is a breeze. To sweeten the deal, a long-neck screwdriver is included in the scope of delivery.


Aesthetics meet functionality

Dark Rock 5 does not compromise on style. A magnetic mesh top cover masks heat pipe ends and the screw hole, providing a sleek, clean design as Dark Rock 5 cools your CPU.


Cooling power beyond belief

Thanks to a nickel-plated base, Dark Rock 5 is compatible with liquid metal thermal grease such as DC2 Pro. The properties of liquid metal compound combined with Dark Rock 5 allow high-end CPUs to perform at even higher levels.

"As a passionate gamer, I love Dark Rock 5! I simply have more FPS here and can really immerse myself in my gaming sessions while the cooler takes care of my CPU."
