Introduction

Be Quiet! Logo

be quiet! continues to adapt and release silence-focused PC products for enthusiasts the world over. Be it cases, power supplies, fans, air coolers, and even all-in-one liquid coolers. The company continues to innovate and deliver products that perform exceptionally well but remain silent. Then again, that is to be expected when the company philosophy is "no compromise silence and performance."


In today's review, I will be taking a look at be quiet!'s newest offering, the Dark Rock TF 2. Like the Dark Rock TF that came before it, the TF 2 is a dual-fan, top-flow design that features six Ø6 mm heat pipes and two Silent Wings 3 fans along with a 230-watt TDP rating. On the surface, be quiet! has made minor visual changes, giving the cooler a more refined appearance, but they didn't stop there. They also made some changes to the base and fans, which, along with changes you can't see at first glance, will hopefully result in a new high-end, low-noise top-flow cooler. But like any review, let's take a closer look before passing judgment!
