be quiet! Announces Silent Loop 2 Liquid CPU Cooler

be quiet!, the market leader for PC power supplies in Germany since 2007, presents the Silent Loop 2 all-in-one water cooling system. At the heart of this powerful cooling solution is a high-quality insulated pump. The three-chamber design and extensive use of insulating material effectively eliminate most of the vibrations and turbulences in the pump housing, thereby reducing operating noise to a minimum. The included Silent Wings 3 high-speed fans ensure low noise levels at high performance. be quiet! has equipped Silent Loop 2 with a large contact area so that even processors with protruding heat spreaders are adequately cooled.

The user can control the pump speed by adjusting the input voltage from 9 to 12 volts. A first for be quiet! is the discreet ARGB lighting on the aluminium top of the pump unit. The lighting can be individually adjusted, either with the included controller or via a 5 V ARGB-header on the motherboard. The be quiet! logo is separately illuminated with white LEDs which can be turned off, if desired. On the inside of the nickel-plated copper cooling surface are more than 120 micro fins. These provide a very high surface area through which the absorbed heat is efficiently transferred to the cooling liquid circulating in the loop. For this purpose, the pump has an equally quiet and powerful 6-pole motor with three phases.

be quiet! Announces Shadow Rock 3 White CPU Cooler

be quiet!, the market leader for PC power supplies in Germany since 2007, announces Shadow Rock 3 White. Instead of the silver/black bi-color scheme of the original version, the new cooler sports a white/black design that will feel right at home in fitting color-themed builds. Shadow Rock 3 White boasts a similar cooling capacity as the original silver version, which was released in March 2020. It is rated at an impressive 190 W TDP thanks to its advanced heat sink design and heat pipe layout, and the included Shadow Wings 2 high-speed fan.
