be quiet! Pure Rock 2 FX Air CPU Cooler Review
Mike Sanders / 1 year ago
While AIO coolers are generally perceived now as the sexier and more premium option, I have to admit to always having a personal preference for air designs. Put simply, I like an air cooler. They’re generally solid, exceptionally reliable, and if installed well should last for years with only minimal cleaning maintenance required. With the newly released be quiet! Pure Rock 2 FX, therefore, this has already piqued my attention!
Not only is it an air cooler coming from one of the most reputable names around, but it also features ARGB lighting effects. Yes, although this is not the first time be quiet! has released an ARGB product, it does still feel more than a little weird that they’ve finally decided to dip their toe in this market. – Toe dipping, however, is something of an understatement because for what’s on offer here, be quiet! quite possibly has some of the nicest ARGB lighting effects around!
be quiet! Pure Rock 2 FX
The be quiet! Pure Rock 2 FX looks to tick a lot of boxes as although acting primarily as a relatively compact performance air cooler, it also boasts some impressive aesthetics and, of course, that impressive ARGB cooling fan. Rated for up to 150W TDP, however, this is clearly suitable for the vast majority of Intel and AMD processors.
Overall, this definitely looks to be an impressive cooler in more ways than one.
- A high 150W TDP cooling efficiency
- Light Wings 120mm PWM high-speed for a vibrant unique look and high performance
- Airflow-optimized fan blades for high pressure and low noise-generating turbulences
- 4 high-performance 6mm heat pipes with HDT technology
- Asymmetrical construction avoids blocking memory slots
- Elegant black surface
- An easily installable installation kit can be mounted from atop the motherboard
- 3-year manufacturer’s warranty
