Be Quiet! Announces Shadow Rock 2 CPU Cooler
Be Quiet! announced Shadow Rock 2 (model: BK013), its newest tower-type CPU Cooler based on the cubical fin-stack design mastered by the company. Measuring 122 x 122 x 160 mm (LxWxD, excluding fan), the Shadow Rock 2 heatsink design consists of a nickel-plated copper base, from which four 8 mm-thick copper heatpipes emerge, which conduct heat through a largely cubical aluminum stack of 51 aluminum fins. The pipes fan-out along two sides of the stack. The fins are somewhat square in shape with jagged edges that are curved inwards along the sides.
A SilentWings 120 mm PWM fan is included in the package, which spins at speeds of up to 1,600 RPM, pushing up to 51 CFM of air. Shadow Rock 2 supports most modern CPU socket types, and can handle thermal loads as high as 180W. Among the CPU socket types supported, are LGA1150/LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA2011, LGA1366, LGA775, AM3+, AM3/AM2+/AM2, and FM2/FM1. Available now, Shadow Rock 2 is priced at 42.90?.
