We are back looking at another air cooler from be quiet! While their high performance Dark Rock series coolers get most of the attention, let’s face it not everyone needs a super high performance cooler and they could save some money going with a more modest cooler that still does a great job at cooling. That is where be quiet’s Shadow Rock series comes in. Today we are checking out the Shadow Rock Slim 2, which is a single tower cooler that is only 74mm thick that has four 6mm-thick heatpipes and a 135 mm cooling fan all with a cooling capacity of 160W TDP. Let’s get this cooler installed and see what it can do!
Special thanks to be quiet! For providing us with the Shadow Rock Slim 2 CPU Cooler to review.
Like all be quiet! products the Shadow Rock Slim 2 comes in a very nice and informative retail box. If you were at the store you would be able to make a very informed buying decision based on all of the information on the box.
Getting everything out of the box we have the Shadow Rock Slim 2 heatsink, cooling fan, mounting hardware, an extra set of fan clips, and thermal paste.
