Today we bring you yet another review of a product from Be Quiet, who perhaps is the most well known German manufacturer of PC-related products. A few weeks ago we had a look at their Dark Rock Advanced C1, a very high quality CPU cooler; today we are going to test and review its monstrous brother, the Dark Rock Pro C1 CPU cooler.
