be quiet!, the German manufacturer renowned for premium PC components, is excited to introduce a new addition to its high-end air cooler lineup: the Dark Rock 5. This single-tower cooler delivers exceptional cooling performance with minimal noise, making it ideal for builds where dual-tower designs like the Dark Rock Pro 5 or Dark Rock Elite won’t fit. Like its larger counterparts, the Dark Rock 5 is highly compatible with high-end consumer motherboards and RAM modules. Its sleek black design ensures it stands out, whether used for gaming, workstations, or as a dependable companion in your home office.

Enhanced Performance and Easier Installation

Building on the high-performance standards of its predecessor, the Dark Rock 4, the Dark Rock 5 combines an iconic design with state-of-the-art fan technology. It features six high-performance heat pipes connected to an asymmetrical heat sink with additional cut-outs for improved compatibility with high RAM and VRM coolers. A Silent Wings 4 120mm PWM fan provides optimal air pressure and near-silent operation, reaching only 29.8dB(A) at maximum speed. For those seeking top-tier performance, an optional second fan can be installed on the exhaust side. As with other Dark Rock models, a special black coating with ceramic particles ensures excellent heat transfer and an elegant appearance.

Installation has been simplified with a pre-fixed mounting bridge and screws, making setup straightforward. The magnetic mesh top cover allows easy access to screws and discreetly hides the heat pipe ends. Additionally, a nickel-based heat plate makes the Dark Rock 5 compatible with liquid metal thermal grease. It comes with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty for added peace of mind.

The Dark Rock 5 will be available in retail starting June 25 at a recommended price of $69.90 / €69.90 / £64.99.
