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 147 x 122 x 160 mm (LxWxD, excluding fan), and weighing 1.12 kg, 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 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€.

Passive cooling anyone? :cool:

It looks to have pretty high fin density, I'm not sure whether that is good for passive cooling. I don't think that it is.

Indeed... It looks like you a right. But then curious how it will perform because of all that length that the air must go...

I am pretty sure they test and compare them atleast to their own coolers AND it is rated for 180W. :laugh:

If the fan only pushes 51 CFM it's a real stretch for this unit to handle a 180w TDP unless they did open air testing. Even then a large heatsink as this is, weighing in at 1.12 kg, eventually gets hot if the CPU is being worked hard. That heat has to be removed from the heatsink and discharged out of the PC case.
