    Wow! Its a beauty! Absolutely stellar performance and its quiet. Keeps my OC'd Ryzen 2600 under 70C load and silent operation at idle with a 40C temp. I read/watched multiple reviews so I knew about all the pros and cons. I personally didn't find it very difficult to install but it was mentioned many times by other reviewers. It's performance and quality are top notch. I love its look, personally my favorite looking air cooler out there.

    I choose this cooler for the combination of aesthetics, cooling performance and noise levels. This cooler has it all. The cost is very high however and with that said the performance-to-value ratio of this cooler is not good compared to competitors.

    Mounting the actual heatsink onto the motherboard wasn't an issue at all. It was installing the fan clips that were the biggest pain of the installation. If you're not careful, its very easy to chip off the powder coated fins. Also easy to bend the fins as well. Overall one probably won't be able to see the bent / chipped fins but it's worth noting this.

    Pros:

    • Very quiet! This one is a big plus for me
    • Aesthetically pleasing - compared to Noctua D15
    • Cooling performance seems excellent - gets my Ryzen 5 2600 stable at 4.0GHz @ 1.2875 VCore

    Cons:

    • Cost. I saved a bit of money from the eBay 20% discount but even than, it feels like the performance-to-value ratio is not as great as competitive coolers out there

    Comments: - Installation wasn't very difficult but it definitely isn't very easy either

    Keeps my ryzen 7 2700x cooler under load than a 240mm AIO did, for a fraction of the cost. Plus it really helps fill the space.

    The installation process could be improved but it looks great and provides awesome cooling performance. I've paired my Dark Rock Pro 4 with a Ryzen 2700X and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut TIM.

    the install is a bit more work than i was expecting, hope it will "be quiet"

    Very quiet and CPU temps are good. I will update this once I overclock.

    Looks great and performs well, it runs silent and cool even with a 5Ghz delidded 8700k.

    Fantastic cooling and looks great. Very quiet. A pain in the butt to install! Also don't bother getting RGB RAM if you get this beast as it will block it from view. Also will restrict which case you get as most mid-towers don't have the height clearance for this mammoth

    Almost as good as the NH-D15 except it doesn't look awful. Want something big, quiet, and high TDP if I want to overclock and never have to think about if the cooler can handle it. Was going to get a 360mm AIO, but I decided I don't want to spend every day wondering "Is this going to be the day the pump dies or it leaks and destroys my machine?"

    One week in: Easier to install than I thought it would be. Very quiet and nice looking. VERY BIG, make sure you have a big case. The free screwdriver you get with it is excellent and is now my favorite screwdriver. 5GHz on all 8 cores and Prime95 pushed this cooler to 94C on the hottest core, but this was with an ASUS 5GHz profile with overly high voltages. Glad I went with this instead of a 360MM AIO. The black paint scratches VERY easily. Instructions are well written. Non OC temps are 68C with all cores at 4.6GHz which is standard 9700k operating mode. Cleared my TridentZ RAM modules after moving the fan up a bit. Tall kits like Corsair Plats may give you issues!

    I've only had it in for a day, but it's already dominating over the previous stock cooler. Getting the same low temps but with only just over 150rpm. I really wasn't expecting the noise difference to be so noticeable. It's silent. Check the pictures, you'll see it does block access to the ram cards, so I pray now that I don't have to change them out any time soon. Also, it's a beast, in size, but perfect fit overall.
