Be Quiet! Reveals the Shadow Rock 2 CPU Heatsink

Be Quiet! has announced its new Shadow Rock 2 CPU cooler. The unit is a tower-style CPU cooler, which features a large array of aluminum fins, to which the heat is brought through a total of four 8 mm copper heat pipes. The cooler measures 147 x 122 x 160 mm without taking the fan into account, and it weighs 1.12 kg.

The unit's fan measures 120 mm, is PWM controlled, and can spin up to 1600 RPM. At this speed it will push 51 CFM of air, and lets the combination of the fan and heat sink dissipate a total of up to 180 W of thermal power.

The CPU cooler will work in all modern CPU sockets, including the new LGA1150 socket as well as the AM3+ and FM2 sockets.

Be Quiet! has priced the Shadow Rock 2 CPU cooler at an MSRP of €42.90 ($57), and it should already have hit shops in select regions.

    Square coolers should have an option to put 4/5 fans, onee each side, just for the lulz.

    feel like swapping in a slighty bigger fan would help this one.
