No Compromise Silence and Perfor
No Compromise Silence and Performance
The virtually silent Dark RockTM 2 CPU Cooler puts our famous anti-noise technology where it really counts: at the heart of your system. This tower design cooler is excellent for overclocked systems and highly demanding multi-graphics platforms.
 
Featuring a quiet-optimized 135mm SilentWings® 2 fan with PWM function and six high-performance heatpipes, Dark Rock 2 generates up to 180W TDP cooling capacity and strikes the perfect balance between intense cooling and deep serenity. Special wave-contoured heatsink fins further minimize noise-inducing turbulence while maximizing heat transfer.
 
Dark Rock 2: offering top performance-to-noise ratio and the highest reliability available.
 
Very quiet operation
135mm SilentWings® fan with PWM function for optimized fan speed throughout the entire working range provides the perfect balance between superior cooling and quiet. The specially developed wave shaped contour of the heatsink fins optimizes airflow and avoids noise generating turbulence.
 
Highly effective cooling 
Six ultra-high performance heatpipes with an oxygen-free copper layer help to transport the heat directly to the optimal place of the heatsinks.

Pros
A very quiet heatsink that's solid and well made, and cools extremely well.
Cons
Very big. Need to make sure it'll fit into the case. Bought 2, base on one was very far from flat.
Summary
Granted i hadn't the proper grit of sandpaper, however one of the 2 that i ordered of this model heatsink had a base that altogether took over 8 hours to lap flat over the course of a number of days.

Thank goodness it only has to be done once. After that tho it was a very nice heatsink, efficient and very quiet. It's mounted on an AMD FX-8350 furnace that's mildly overclocked to 4.2GHz, inside a 7 year old Sonata III case, which is a smallish case with ventilation that's middling adequate. At idle the PWM fans spin around 600RPM and the CPU is at 30C.

The other of this model heatsink i ordered is in a 14yr. old big server case and it idles at 590RPM with that FX-8350 at 27C, same mild overclock.

Both heatsinks and CPU's are lapped, one set a lot, the other only moderately to achieve the same flatness.

Other than the flatness of the base these are very well made and good looking heatsinks.

Pros
Looks great, quiet, adjustable fan height for RAM clearance, braided cable
Cons
Mount was a bit annoying, not properly fitted for motherboard. No mounting holes for swapping the fan.
Summary
Pretty happy with the cooler so far, very quiet and seems to keep CPU temps down (although I haven't stressed it much). Mounting the cooler was an adventure, have a friend help you if possible. For some reason, one of the bolts on the processor mount for my motherboard (Asus Z87-PRO) stuck out against the mounting plate of the cooler so the cutouts may not fit everyone. I was still able to mount it but had to depress the foam on the plate to do so.

Fan can be removed and shifted upwards or flipped if you want to push air instead of pull. The removal of the fan could've been a bit easier, as I managed to shred my hand a bit while trying to remove it. Not sure how much static pressure the fan has but I'm guessing not an awful lot.

Pros
Super Quiet & Easy to install!
Can't go wrong when its on sale!
Cons
Tall & make sure you have clearance for ram
Summary
Ok I purchased this Be Quiet! Dark Rock 2 Silentwings CPU Cooler
because My H40 was making to much noise from the pump.
Plus my H40 wouldn't give me decent temps with my OC.
So I saw this cooler on sale and decided to take a chance.

I'm running a AMD 1055 with a Asus M4 board 32Gb patriot ram
in a Zalman Z9 plus Mid case OC'd to a mild 3.9Ghz. My temps with the H40 were 35c idle and high 60's gaming Sniper Ghost warrior 2.
With the BQ Dark rock 2 my temps are now 27c idle and 52c is the highest temp so far.
This cooler is quiet! I have to keep looking at the fan to make sure its working.
Also the unit is very tall. make sure you have room. In my Zalman Z9 plus case there's only about 1/8th of an inch clearance from the clear side panel.

Clearance for Ram is a bit tight also!
For the price I paid....I love it!

Pros
OCed my 3570k easily to 4.3 under 1.25V. Large and very quiet Fan. Looks very nice with a window case. Air cool, no noise! Keep my cpu around 35C at idle, 75-80C at full load.
Cons
Uneasy to install. Length might not be suitable for smaller case. My corsair 350D window is pushed tight against the top metal plate. push pull setup is not available for this guy. high profile memory will interfere with the fan, but can be adjusted.
Summary
I bought this to replace antec 920, which is supposed to be able to handle heavier OC, however can be very loud. Be Quiet! has come up with a solution for good OC without compromise the noise level around your workstation. I high recommend this to anyone who demand silent workstation with decent amount of OC performance. Matx case is not recommended to its height.
