Be quiet’s Dark Rock line of CPU coolers are their high-performance line meant to handle the most extreme processors and thermal loads out there. While most of the coolers in the line are tower coolers there is one that is different, it is the Dark Rock TF. The Dark Rock TF or Dark Rock Top-Flow is a C-type cooler that features two powerful nickel-plated aluminum heat sinks and two 135 mm SilentWings cooling fans. Be quiet calls this cooler a compact cooler, but it is one of the larger C-type coolers that we’ve seen. It is supposed to offer one of the best performance-to-noise ratios in its class. Let’s get it installed and see what it can do!
Not that long ago we took a look at Noctua’s NH-D15S CPU cooler. It was a revised version of the original NH-D15 which was made to be more compatible with memory modules and PCI-Express cards. Well Noctua has done the same thing with their flagship C-type cooler as well. Today we are going to be checking out the NH-C14S, which is a new revision of the award winning NH-C14 that offers better memory clearance, an offset design that gives better clearance for PCI-Express cards, and offers both a low-profile mode and a high clearance mode. Will these changes affect how well the cooler performs? Or do we have another winner on our hands? Let’s get this cooler installed and see!
