BeQuiet! Dark Rock Pro C1



To conclude there aren’t too many bad things we can say about this cooler, besides its massive dimensions and sub-optimal mounting system. That said, this air cooler is top-notch and definitely belongs in the top segment of the market. The price may be a bit high but for that will deliver it’s promises in Dark Rock-solid Proformance!

In my opinion the pro’s easily outweight the cons here.


  • Excellent cooling performance
  • Inaudible at highest RPM setting
  • Looks well designed and solid
  • Double fan, one PWM


  • Size and dimensions
  • Sub-optical installation
  • Price
  • May block some RAM awards the BeQuiet! Dark Rock Pro C1 with 4/5 stars, for excellent, inaudible performance, packed in a monstreous black heatsink.
