The new Dark Rock Pro 4 is not messing around, 1.13kg of blackened aluminium standing 162.8x136x145.7 which makes it slightly smaller than Morry's mighty Noctua NH-D15 which helps when installing it in tight places.  The performance does not seem to have suffered at all however, TechPowerUp's review shows it a match to the mighty cooler and it produces less noise as well.  For just about $90 this is well worth looking into, as the mounting hardware has improved as much as the ability to move heat away from your CPU.

"be quiet! looks to recapture the high-end air-cooling crown with the new and improved Dark Rock Pro 4. It is a dual-fan, dual-tower design that will certainly turn a few heads. However, it won't be due to noise. Silent and powerful, this new challenger looks to dethrone Noctua's NH-D15."
