Computex: Be Quiet! Release Shadow Rock Slim CPU Cooler
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Be Quiet have just used Computex as a springboard to launch a brand new CPU cooler, the Shadow Rock Slim. The Shadow Rock Slim uses a compact design, compared to previous Be Quiet coolers like the Dark Rock Pro 2, this allows for much better RAM compatibility and compatibility in general with smaller motherboards and cases.
Be Quiet have designed the heatsink fins to bend closer to each other which Be Quiet claim is for better cooling performance while they also claim they have also implemented a much better mounting solution to allow for increased pressure and therefore better performance. The heat pipes used are copper and 6mm in size, they feed into an alumnium heatsink stack that is ventilated by a 135mm SilentWings fan. Be Quiet provide the fan mounting clips to allow you to mount a second fan to the Shadow Rock Slim should you so desire.
The design is sleek and uses silver brushed aluminium and aluminium caps on the heat pipes to give that traditional high quality Be Quiet look. Be Quiet have told us the MSRP is around €39 and the ETA for availability is November 2013.
