Great cooler but with some flaws due to its size
21 December 2020
The Dark Rock Pro 4 is one of the best air coolers out there. Installation was straight forward, though because of the size of the cooler, you may run into some difficulties depending on your setup. Cooling as expected is superb, though it is not a cheap cooler to begin with as the price rivals some of the decent 240mm AIO.
One thing I did not quite like about the cooler is the size. It’s huge, and it covers 3 out of 4 RAM slots. In addition, it was so close to the closest PCI-E x16 slot that if you have a thick graphic card, it’s almost impossible to unlock the PCI-E locking mechanism to remove your graphic card. So you will either want to risk using a long and thin object to press the press the locking mechanism down to unlock or you will need to remove the cooler. I did not experience this problem using another twin tower cooler before this.
