Be Quiet! Announces SFX L Power PSU Series

Be Quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for eleven consecutive years, presents the SFX L Power power supply. As powerful and compact PCs for multimedia and gaming are finding their way into living rooms, be quiet!'s SFX L Power was designed to meet the rising demand for high efficiency and silent cooling in small form factor computers. The new power supply series does not make the SFX Power 2 series obsolete, but SFX L Power is the highest performing alternative amongst be quiet!'s compact form factor PSUs.

SFX form factor power supplies commonly use 80-millimeter fans that are required to rotate faster to equally perform like larger fans and produce more noise. Choosing the slightly longer SFX-L form factor enables be quiet! to install a silent, temperature-controlled 120-millimeter fan inside SFX L Power. The power supply still fits in most chassis and is ideal for powerful mini ITX systems, and small ATX systems thanks to the included ATX adapter bracket. With SFX L Power, users can expect silent operation to power their compact gaming or multimedia systems.

Be Quiet! Announces Silent Loop 360 Liquid CPU Cooler

Be Quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for eleven consecutive years, is introducing the newest addition to the Silent Loop family, Silent Loop 360 mm.

Be Quiet! Announces Shadow Rock TF 2 CPU Cooler

Be Quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for eleven consecutive years*, adds a new top flow CPU cooler to its current portfolio of cooling products. Shadow Rock TF 2, the follow-up to be quiet!'s successful Shadow Rock TopFlow, adds several optimizations that significantly improve upon its predecessor's cooling potential. With its low-profile design and supported TDP of 160W, Shadow Rock TF 2 is ideal for powerful compact PC systems requiring extensive cooling.

Five 6 mm high-performance copper heat pipes are designed with aluminum caps at the ends, enhancing Shadow Rock TF 2's clean modern look. Overall cooling performance is improved significantly by a complete redesign of the cooling fins - direct connections between fins and base plate support faster heat dissipation. As a result, Shadow Rock TF 2 cools down the CPU significantly better than its predecessor at a similar TDP rating of 160W. Additional cooling support comes from a 135mm silence-optimized be quiet! fan using a durable rifle bearing, airflow-optimized fan blades and a design producing sound pressure levels up to 24.4dB(A) at the maximum of 1,400 revolutions per minute.

Be Quiet! Unveils the Dark Base 900 Chassis with Reversible MB Tray

Be Quiet! showed off a unique ATX full-tower chassis at Computex, the Dark Base 900, featuring a fully reversible motherboard tray. This lets you change the interiors between a standard layout, in which the motherboard faces the left side of the chassis with its I/O up top; and an inverted (BTX-like) layout, in which it faces the right panel, with its I/O at the bottom. This is possible by pulling out the rear panel that's attached to the tray, and inverting it. This also gives you the flexibility of installing your motherboard, CPU cooler, and add-on cards outside the case. The case features room for a 420 mm x 140 mm radiator along its front panel.

Be Quiet! Unveils Dark Base Pro 900 Chassis

Be Quiet! unveiled its latest full-tower chassis, the Dark Base Pro 900. Positioned a notch above the Dark Base 900, this case stands apart in featuring tempered glass windowed side-panels, a wireless charger for Qi standard smartphones, and freely positioning LED illumination.

The case features a dual-compartment layout, with a bottom compartment holding the PSU and drives; and the top compartment dedicated to the motherboard tray, with gobs of headroom for long graphics cards. The case supports 420 x 140 mm radiators, and includes three SilentWings 3 PWM fans.

Be Quiet! Silent Loop Series AIO Liquid CPU Coolers Revisited

We first spied the Silent Loop series AIO coolers before its official unveiling on the Computex showfloor. We strolled through the Be Quiet! booth again, this time to picture the three up close. So here you have it, the German cooling, casing, and PSU maker's first AIO liquid cooling solutions. Available in three radiator sizes - 120 mm x 120 mm, 240 mm x 120 mm, and 280 mm x 140 mm, the coolers feature a square pump+block with a nickel-plated copper base.

These coolers come in sizes of 280 mm x 140 mm, 240 mm x 120 mm and 120 mm x 120 mm; and are characterized by pump+block fittings that don't move around a pivot, and come out from the top of the block. This approach clears up a lot of space around the CPU socket. This may also hint at the cooler's possible non-Asetek origins. You also get fill-ports along the pump-block and the reservoir attached to the radiator. Be Quiet! is bundling PureWings 2 PWM fans. The coolers will be backed by 3-year warranties.

Be Quiet! Equips its Power Supplies with Black Cables
