Be quiet! is starting off 2014 by showing off some of their brand new CPU coolers at CES 2014. Be quiet’s Dark Rock series has been around for a while and it is back with the Dark Rock 3 and Dark Rock Pro 3. They were also showing off a very slim cooler in their Shadow Rock Slim model.
Starting off with the Dark Rock Pro 3 it is a double tower cooler. It features seven high performance heatpipes and be quiet’s own SilentWings fans. There is a 120 mm outer fan and a 135 mm inner fan. Both of these fans use a fluid dynamic bearing. This cooler can support thermal loads of up to 250W TDP and you have the option to add a third fan if you like.
Next we have the Dark Rock 3 which is a single tower, but offers great performance as it can handle thermal loads up to 190W TDP. This cooler also features be quiet’s Silent Wings fan as it sports a 135 mm on the front. There are six 6 mm copper heatpipes that aid in cooling. You have the option to add a second fan to the cooler if you like.
The last cooler be quiet! showed us was the Shadow Rock Slim, which I’m sure you can guess by the same means it is a slim cooler. Even though it is slim it has a cooling capacity of 160W TDP. There are four high-performance 6 mm copper heatpipes. The cooler comes equipped with a 135 mm silence optimized fan.
