be quiet!, this wasn't a popular name that we have heard of in the past, but be quiet! has start to become a popular attraction as of recent. You may ask why? While be quiet! was started in 2006, they were primarily in the Power Supply Market, but it wasn't until 2010 that they started to break out of its shell and joined in with the CPU Cooling market. Today we have the opportunity to test out one of be quiet!'s new CPU Coolers, the Dark Rock Pro 2 that has started to attract allot of attention and we are here to put this cooler to the test to see how it stacks up again the current competitors. Will this cooler work as it advertises? How is pricing? Availability?
As you read on today we hope to answer some of those questions for you. So without going into much detail, lets dive in and take a good look at the be quiet! - Dark Rock Pro 2 CPU Cooler.
Over the years we have seen hundreds of air coolers of various models and designs. From the smaller coolers to the larger twin tower coolers, performance is always a key factor when it comes to finding the right product. Today we are going to be looking to a new unique design by Thermalright. It is called the True Spirit 120m. Does it have the right aesthetic appeal and how does it stack up with some of today's coolers in thermal performance? That is what we will attempt to answer in our review today.
Today we will be taking a look at something new to the PC thermal world. Interestingly, for all the car enthusiasts out there, this may be something you have seen before. This is technology you likely have not seen in a computer on your desktop, but it's very possible you may have seen it in a heavily modded hot rod sitting in your driveway. We are going to be looking at a new CPU Cooler from Xigmatek. It's called the Dark Knight II - Night Hawk Edition Cooler. It uses what they call "stealth" technology which basically means the heatsink has been ceramic coated to provide additional thermal dissipation. This is first of its kind technology we have seen used on a CPU Cooler, and today we will see how it stacks up to its more traditional competitors.
To talk a little more about what's in store, the Xigmatek Dark Knight II - Night Hawk Edition Cooler may look like your typical tower cooler available on the market; however, its thermal technology is a little more unique. The Ceramic coated aluminum fins along with a direct copper base design gets our imagination wondering just how well this cooler might perform. Before we move on, let's learn a little more about Xigmatek.
