    Shows Off Shadow Rock 2 CPU Cooler?? next will be ''The Return of Shows Off Shadow Rock'' or ''The Revenge Shows Off Shadow Rock'' , I prefer more innovation in cpu air cooler, and not another cpu cooler.

    seems a bit large to me. It makes me wonder, how many ram slots it will cover? With a large surface area it should cool nicely though.

    Looks pretty big with really condensed fins. Can't wait for benchmark on this ^^

    I like the external fan. I have an old MassCool brick with the fan enclosed entirely in soldered fins with copper heatpipes, and while it still does it's job, it's now about as quiet as my car.

    So probably not going to fit in my micro-ITX case then.
