Be Quiet Dark Rock Advanced C1 CPU cooler review

 

During the past few months we brought you the reviews of several power supply units from Be-Quiet, a German manufacturer. The company produces more than just power supplies though, offering a wide range of cooling products as well. Today we have yet another product from Be-Quiet to test and review but it is no power supply this time; it is the Dark Rock Advanced C1, a high performance CPU cooler.
