be quiet! Shadow Rock Slim, Shadow Rock TF2, Silent Loop Coolers Pictured

be quiet! is at it again this Computex, showing off a myriad for new products which look to fill the company's line-up with some extra cooling capabilities. The Shadow Rock Slim stands as a new, slim tower cooler, which should help in cramped environments where maintaining availability of that pesky leftmost RAM slot can be a problem (another solution might be just cutting the leftmost RAM slot entirely!)

In addition, the company also showcased the Shadow Rock TF2, another compact cooling solution - this time on the Z axis. It can dissipate up to 160 W, features five copper heatpipes and has an operating noise of up to 24.4 dbA, which isn't all too shabby. But if you are looking for a new cooling solution for your GPU (maybe your Founder's Edition NVIDIA graphics card, why not) be quiet! has you covered with their new Silent Loop. This is an AIO which looks to be both performant and expensive, since its radiator is being touted as a full copper solution. The Silent Loop features three Silent Wing 2 PWM controlled fans. The pump has some tricks up its sleeve as well, being a decoupled, reverse-flow solution which be quiet! says is quieter, smoother and less prone to vibrations than more conventional pump designs.

White cases look so clean. A WHITE Dark Base 900 just sounds silly though no matter how good it looks :D I definitely love my Dark Base Pro 900 in black. I also have their Big Rock 3 cooler which definitely blocks two ram slots, oh well.

Be quiet needs to drop production of Silent Wings 1 and 2 fans, they are complete trash compared to the SW3. It boggles my mind that they still continue to launch new products with them, despite fully knowing this.

What did you like about the Dark Base 900 for you to love it? It was my worst case of 2016 of all those I have reviewed, scoring low 80's.

The cable routing, build quality, finish/fitment , modularity and being all black. The only thing I saw that could need improving is the manual really.
Link to your review please?

Cable routing is a PITA in this case, how many other cases have you owned and built in? The motherboard tray makes it a PITA because of those extra brackets to keep the tray sturdy. The finish on mine was bent and the brown tint in the glass is ugly. Modularity is great, but for me, I had to take pliers to the PSU bracket to be able to actually put a PSU in it. The magnets holding the front door are too weak, when building the door keeps opening, which causes a high chance to break the door, etc etc., you can read the rest in the review ;)
