    Hey guys,

    on the scan page ready to buy some stuff for new rig but i cant decide on the cooler....

    It will be cooling a i5-2500k OCd so its a choice between the Dark Rock Pro or the Dark Rock advanced!

    Also will they both fit in my Define R3 Arctic White?

    Thanks guys

    The pro should also fit

    From the research I've done on the net. They should fit fine, although if you have RAM that has those comedy size heatsinks on them they might not fit. So you will have to looks at Low Profile RAM.

    I have the Pro inside a Define R3. It fits fine, the only problem will be RAM with heatsinks.
