Best air cooler?

Dark Rock Pro 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

After the best air cooler for an 8350 setup. Money is not an issue, so I don't have a set budget.

 

Needs to look good too, so no Noctua please. Also, I don't want an AIO loop, needs to have that tower cooler look!

Dark Rock Pro 2

Thanks, thought that might be the case.

 

What's the difference between the Dark Rock, and the Dark Rock Pro?

The Pro 2 is dual tower, while the non-Pro has 1 tower.
