No Compromise Silence and Perfor
No Compromise Silence and Performance
The virtually silent Dark RockTM Pro 2 CPU Cooler puts our famous anti-noise technology where it counts: at the heart of your system. Its double tower, double fan design is perfect for overclocked systems and the most demanding multi-graphics platforms.
Twin quiet-optimized SilentWings® 2 fans with PWM function and seven ultra-high performance heatpipes generate massive 220W 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 Pro 2: offering the greatest performance-to-noise ratio and highest reliability available.
Very quiet operation
135mm inner and 120mm front 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

+ Quiet
+ Nice design
+ Price/performance (when on sale)
- Big (make sure you have plenty of space in your case/RAM)
- Little complicated to install
It was either this CPU cooler or another one from Phanteks. I took the plunge from be quiet! and I didn't regret it. It was very quiet and it looks better than on the pic.

Make sure it is compatible with your case because it is very large. Also, you have to make sure that there's enough clearance on the RAM. I suggest low profile RAM. If you want normal RAM, make sure the height is less than 38mm.

Experience: 30 Days

Very Quiet
Easy To Install
Beautiful Cooler
Unbelievable Temps
Heavy (Make sure you tighten it securely)
Bulky (Won't fit with tall RAM Sticks)
Put this on my current AMD build:
FX-8350 Black Edition
8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz
ASUS Radeon HD7870
This cooler keeps my CPU below room temps at idle, and has yet to touch 40 degrees C loaded with BF4. I was stunned, even my Antec Kuhler 920 couldn't do that. HIGHLY Recommended.
One note: had to move my RAM over two channels because they wouldn't fit under the fin block.

Experience: 2 Months
 Verified Owner
Silent, Very effective, finish and quality is astounding.
only thing; may have clearance issues with RAM, (vengeance is a no)
installation wasn't the greatest, but once you get it on and lined up, it all pulls together nicely. aesthetics are second to none, by far the best looking air cooler on the market. a great buy considering it *almost* beats the noctua nh-d14 in performance, and does it with style. my 4770k s4.2ghz doesn't even reach 65 degrees under full load.

Cant beat the value when its on sale. i got my DRP2 on sale for around $60, but i would have paid full price for it in a heartbeat. German quality i tell ya' HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Experience: 1 Days
 Verified Owner
very quiet, my 4670K gets 35°C during idle state.
very hard to set up. I need to take out the motherboard to from the case completely in order to put the cooler on.
highly recommend. got it for &69.9 on sale.

Experience: 30 Days
 Verified Owner
Do what it supposed to do
Nothing bad to say about it
Very quiet! very easy to install. Come with all the stuff I needed, a lot of wire, just to pluged it if it's required. Best power supply.

Très silencieux! Facile à installer. Tout ce dont j'avais besoin. Inclus le filage nécessaire et même plus. Juste besoin de branché le filage si nécessaire. Meilleur "power supply" jusqu'à présent.

Experience: 14 Days
 Verified Owner
-Great Look
-Keeps CPU cool, on par with NH-D14
-Bulky, do not buy unless you are using super low profile ram. It squeezes my Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600s... so don't get a dominator
This cooler will fit into a Bitfenix Prodigy without any cutting on the case or case mods. This cooler will also support a 4.8GHz OC on your 4770K with 38 degree idle, and 80 degrees peak. If you play to put this thing into a Bitfenix Prodigy, you need low profile RAM, and you need to take the 120mm silent wings fan off and put another fan into the back wall.

Super Quiet
Looks sexier in person
Cools very well
Very large, only fits my R3 by the skin of it's teeth (about 1mm clearance from my side panel)
Cannot fit larger dimms such as Vengeance
bit of a pain to fasten in you're case, i'd commomend doing it before putting your motherboard in.
I bought this cooler at launch and love it to bits, even at full throttle it's quieter than your average PC at idle. When doing light weight tasks it's even quiet enough for an HTPC
Here's some numbers I've been getting for my 2600k 1.30v 4.5ghz
Initital Idle 20-30
Idling for a few hours or longer 30-35
1080p Video(YouTube and Blu Ray) 39-45
6 hour gaming session of Facrcry 3 I've seen it peak at about 65

Comment: The dual-tower design that we are going to be testing today is the Dark Rock Pro 2. Now I have tested just about every incarnation of this concept up to this point, so I already know the bar has been set pretty high as far as performance of these types of coolers go. On top of that, most of the dual
