Be Quiet! Shadow Rock Pro SR1 CPU Cooler Review

Rating: 8.0.

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.
