Unmistakable, beefy design makes for an eyecatcher in any system

Our strongest air cooler
Dark Rock Elite features 7 high-performance copper heat pipes and 2 Silent Wings fans, specially designed for maximum air pressure and perfect airflow. As a result, this high-end cooler always keeps your CPU at peak performance, especially in heavily overclocked systems and demanding workstations

Dual fans for massive cooling power
2 Silent Wings 135mm PWM fans provide maximum airflow for unprecedented cooling. Although designed for performance, the fans are virtually inaudible at regular speeds. In Quiet Mode, the maximum noise is a mere 25.8dB(A). This is achieved with advanced fluid-dynamic bearings and smooth 6-pole fan motors.

Thanks to a rail system
The front fan can easily be adjusted in height, making Dark Rock Elite compatible with almost any configuration. Adjusting the fan is a breeze: thanks to the innovative rail system, the fan position can be altered in 5 steps.

Make it the cooler you need
The Speed Switch allows you to choose between 2 modes, each affecting the maximum fan speed and PWM curve. The Quiet Mode provides a maximum fan speed of 1500r/min and is the perfect choice for super-quiet builds. The Performance Mode allows the Silent Wings fans to spin with up to 2000r/min and unleashes Dark Rock Elite's full power.

A design that speaks for itself
The top cover features ARGB LEDs that light up in endless colors, which can be configured with any ARGB controller. Combined with its distinctive design, Dark Rock Elite becomes the highlight of any system and is especially well suited for exclusive showcases. The special black coating with ceramic particles not only adds a visual highlight to the air cooler: it also enables a perfect transfer of heat.

Unbelievable Cooling Power
Thanks to a nickel-plated base, Dark Rock Elite is compatible with liquid metal thermal grease such as DC2 Pro. The properties of liquid metal compound combined with Dark Rock Elite allow high-end CPUs to perform at even higher levels.
