With more and more memory kits being RGB-enabled, large CPU coolers like the be quiet! Dark Rock 4 may not fit or will cover these illuminated sticks. When that is the case, users now have the Dark Rock Slim to provide CPU cooling while allowing for an unobstructed view of the memory modules below.
With cooling capacity up to 180 watts, the slim tower Dark Rock Slim features four heat pipes that make their way up and through black fins featuring small dimples for increased surface area. Pushing air through the tower is a 120mm Silent Wings 3 PWM fan that is outfitted with a fluid dynamic bearing for longevity and reliability.
We think that the Dark Rock Slim really compliments the existing Dark Rock lineup, and can really go a long way to helping PC builders efficiently cool their CPUs, while at the same time allowing their RGB memory modules to go unobstructed. With an expected release sometime in Q2 of 2019, we expect to see the Dark Rock Slim priced around $50.
