With a couple of months of delay, Be Quiet! announces the availability of the Shadow Rock 2 HSF. Originally anticipated to arrive in April, this cooler has a tower design with a copper base, four 8mm diameter heatpipes, and a large cubical stack of 51 aluminium fins. Airflow is provided by a 120mm SilentWings PWM fan, which provides up to 51CFM of airflow and a static pressure of 1.40 mmH2O at a noise level of 25.4dBA.
With fan included, the cooler measures 147mm x 122mm x 160mm and weighs a whopping 1.12kg. The specifications list a maximum TDP of 180W, and mounting tools are included for Intel LGA 775 / 1150 / 1155 / 1156 / 1366 / 2011 and AMD Socket 754 / 939 / 940 / AM2(+) / AM3 (+) / FM1 / FM2 processors.
The MSRP is 42.90EUR.
Exceptional Cooling Efficiency
Very high cooling benchmarks complement its high cooling capacity of 180W TDP
Four high-performance 8mm heatpipes carry heat to optimal location on the cooling fins
Extremely Low-Noise Operation
Turbulence-reducing wave design on cooling fins reduces noise generation from airflow
Optimized 120mm be quiet! fan with PWM function supports the best balance of cooling performance and quiet operation
Even at 100% PWM function, noise is at scant 25.4dB(A)
Highly Compatible, Highly Functional Design
Square, single tower design saves space and supports four-directional fan mounting for best heat convection
Compatibility with all current Intel® and AMDTM sockets
Freely-selectable fan mount point is recommended for AMDTM users
