Up Close:  Packaging and Contents

The Dark Rock 3 comes in the Sultry Black packaging we have come to expect from bequiet.  The exterior of the box lists technical specifications as well as giving images and graphics of the product within.

Opening up the lid reveals the Cooler nestled within.  Cut and shaped formed expanded foam packaging holds the Rock 3 very firmly indeed, with the small accessories box being isolated from it to prevent damage in transit.  The Cooler comes with the fan already attached and the whole shooting match can be lifted out of the box in one go.

Along with a fold out sheet of multi language instructions you also get a universal mounting plate, separate brackets for AMD and Intel, a handy dandy (Although in use slightly spazzy) spanner, a tube of TIM, shed loads of screws and an additional set of fan mount spring clips.

Is it just me or are those fins on the baseplate mounted the wrong way? If they turned them 90 degrees, the fan would have more influence on those.

Anyway, it is a nice looking cooler!Quote

temps don't look right on the 4.4 test.
pro3 has 67.7c with delta of 47.1c and rock3 67.3c with delta 47.3c but both have an ambient of 20c??????.
Am i missing something as that math dos not seem correct or is the rock3 actually outperforming its big bro?Quote

Very nice offering from Be Quiet! Quality review Gary.
Pros: Colour, nicely lapped base, fins have nice spacing, multi socket brackets, 6x heat pipes.
