Be Quiet! Shadow Rock Pro SR1 CPU Cooler Review

Review Score:
1 Flares 1 Flares ×

We have looked at a number of products from Be Quiet! in the past and have been impressed with both their design and performance.  The most impressive one was the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro which featured a high performance twin-tower design and an attractive black finish.  So we were pleased to hear that Be Quiet! decided to expand their range of CPU coolers to cater to a broader spectrum of users.

Today we are going to look at the Be Quiet! Shadow Rock Pro which is part of the new Shadow Rock series.  While the Dark Rock series was designed for the enthusiast segment where performance is the key consideration, the Shadow Rock is designed with quiet operation in mind. Let’s take a closer look.

    The price is really good, most of the higher end performance coolers are £50-£70 now. and this one probably has a better fan than any of them, technically anyway

    I doubt many people buy an £80 cooler, most companies need to stop focusing on beating everyone else and getting something at this price point that allows for overclocking.

    the difference between 70c and 75c really means very little at the end of the day to you, or the processor.

    And just like most air HSF manufacturers they fail to take into account those of us who choose to use Dimms with tall heat spreaders the likes of Corsairs Dominator DHX for instance, so for me and many others like me this is a complete waste of time, Would it kill manufacturers to use a fricken measuring tape and add another 1.5cm to the heatpipes ” NO IT WOULDN’T ” it’s lazy ass designers
