be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 Review

A Closer Look »


In terms of size, the Dark Rock Pro 4 comes in a box that measures in at roughly 20 cm in length, 18 cm in width, and 20.9 cm in height. The front gives you a nice look at the beast itself and the rated TDP. A few features, such as the SilentWings fans, are mentioned as well. Taking a look at the left side, a small paragraph about be quiet! can be found in various languages, as well as features listed in different languages. On the back is the good stuff, such as the unit's measurements and specifications.

On the right are some images and lists which further detail the Dark Rock Pro 4's features, while the top just has the name and TDP.


Opening the box, you will be greeted by a lot of foam surrounding the Dark Rock Pro 4. Mounting hardware is located on the left side in a seperate box, along with the instruction manual. Honestly, the packaging here is quite good and I have no complaints.

Its always nice when a manufacturer goes the extra step. While the Dark Rock Pro 4 from be quiet! has everything you need, they were also nice enough to include a proper screwdriver. Many may not have one that is long enough, so them going the extra step, while somewhat required here, is still nice to see as it shows attention to detail. They have included extra fan clips for a third potential cooling fan for those who want to really push the limit with an air cooler.
