be quiet! debuts Shadow Rock 2 CPU cooler

The famous German cooler maker be quiet! has developed a new tower-oriented CPU cooler under the trade name Shadow Rock 2. The cooler strikes with its size, efficiency and low noise output.

The Shadow Rock 2 consists of a massive heat sink that comes with 51 aluminum fins and four copper heat pipes. The entire cooler measures 147 x 122 x 160 mm and weighs the massive 1120 grams. The size pays off – the cooler supports all modern Intel processors (LGA 775/1150/1155/1156/1366/2011) and AMD chips (socket 754/939/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2) and is capable of cooling processors with TDP of up to 180 watts.

A 120 mm cooling fan that spins between 900 and 1600 rpm cools the Shadow Rock 2. This massive cooling fan can push up to 87 CFM of air per minute at just 25.4 dBa of noise.

The Shadow Rock 2 is available now for EUR 42.90.
