be quiet! introduces Dark Rock 5 Single-Tower CPU Air Cooler

be quiet!, the German manufacturer for premium PC components, is proud to announce a new member to its family of high-end air coolers: Dark Rock 5. With its single-tower design, Dark Rock 5 offers outstanding cooling performance at low noise levels for builds that won’t fit dual-tower designs like Dark Rock Pro 5 or Dark Rock Elite. Like its bigger brothers, Dark Rock 5 offers maximum compatibility with high-end consumer motherboards and RAM-modules. With its sleek black design, Dark Rock 5 knows how to impress: whether you use it for gaming, for workstations or as a reliable companion in your home office.
Better performance, easier installation

Dark Rock 5 improves on the high-performance benchmarks of its predecessor, Dark Rock 4, combining a proven and iconic design with cutting edge fan technology. Six high-performance heat pipes are connected to an asymmetrical heat sink with additional cut-outs for high RAM and VRM cooler compatibility, while a consumer-grade Silent Wings 4 120 mm PWM fan delivers perfect air pressure and virtually inaudible operation (29.8dB(A) at maximum fan speed). For those in search for the highest performance, a second fan can be installed optionally at the exhaust side. As with other Dark Rock models, special black coating with ceramic particles enable perfect heat transfer — and an elegant look.

Mounting has been improved as well: a pre-fixed mounting bridge and screws make installation a breeze, while the magnetic mesh top cover gives easy access to screws and neatly hides the heat pipe ends. Thanks to a nickle-based heat plate, Dark Rock 5 is compatible with liquid metal thermal grease and is supported by a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Dark Rock 5 is available in retail from June 25 at a recommended retail price of $69.90/€69.90/£64.99.
