From the be quiet! website:
#1 for power supplies in Germany
be quiet! products are convincing, which is proven by the company reaching the leadership position of Germany's PSU market in 2006 and defending it since. Their position has also been validated by numerous awards for both power supplies and cooling solutions.
Repeated winner of Manufacturer of the Year
Readers of the well-know German hardware magazine PC Games Hardware have awarded be quiet! the Manufacturer of the Year award six times in a row. Another first and second rank in the categories "fans" and "coolers" for two consecutive years underline the high acceptance of our products.
be quiet! has established itself as a top-tier manufacturer when it comes to a large range of PC products, including power supplies, heatsinks, and fans. They have won numerous awards from reviewers and readers alike. Following their mantra of "no compromise silence and performance", it is no wonder their popularity continues to grow. It probably also helps that most of their stuff is ultra quiet to the point of even showing up Noctua from time to time when it comes to CPU coolers. With a legacy of quality and excellence, be quiet! has earned its reputation in Germany and abroad, and with high-end fans, coolers, power supplies, and even cases, they continue to expand with great success.
In today's review, I will take a look at the be quiet! Pure Rock, an entry level heatsink. It is a single tower cooler with a 120 mm fan. The tower is comprised of 48 aluminum fins and four Ø6 mm heatpipes. With be quiet!'s reputation of offering silent cooling, it will be interesting to see how the Pure Rock performs, so let's see what the be quiet! Pure Rock has to offer!
