Product Overview

Small Yet Effective

Shadow Rock Slim provides an impressive compact cooling capacity of 160W TDP. You can also opt to install an additional 120mm fan to enhance the cooling performance even further – extra fan clips are included in the package.

High-Performance Heat Pipes

The four high-performance 6mm heat pipes carry heat from the nickel-plated copper base plate to optimum locations on the cooling fins.

Extremely Low-Noise Operation

The silence-optimised 135mm be quiet! fan supports the best balance between cooling performance and quietness. The fan operates especially smoothly thanks to its nine airflow-optimised fan blades and durable rifle-bearing technology.

The Perfect Choice for Compact PC Enclosures

The compact design saves space and allows easy access to RAM banks even within the tight confines afforded by some compact PC enclosures.

Intel Branding Part I
Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.

be quiet! BK01 Shadow Rock Slim, Compact Single Tower CPU Cooler, 4 Heatpipes, 1x135mm PWM Fan, 160W TDP Intel/AMD CPUs is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad. Not great. A real dog fitting to an AMD ITX motherboard using the included AMD clip. Screws fitted way too tightly so unscrewing the pre-installed Intel mount bracket shredded the heads so be careful when taking them off. Fitting the heatsink nearly bent the board and fitting the fan bent the blades in the sink and cut my fingers to shreds. Annoyingly, for AMD CPU's only, the fan can only be situated either blowing up or down and not pointing left and directing out of the rear case fan like on the Intel form factor. Not ideal for ITX cases with no top exhaust fan. On top of this, if you install an M.2 SSD then the slot is situated directly under the CPU (where most are situated for ITX motherboards) then the heat from it (and they get hot) will be exhausted into your CPU fan and back into the heatsink. If you want the fan pushing air down then you have to turn the sink upside down (as the fan only fits on one side of the sink) and have it pushing the warm air down towards your graphics card. So what's it to be? A hot CPU or hot GPU. To quote the film Airplane: The yours... German engineering, little common sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my life, very respectable little cooler. My deadout VPP water pump decided to go AWOL, leaving me with no cooler. My backup AIO also, for a laugh, decided to die on the same day right after installing. Had to emergancy purchace a cooler small enough to fit a case maxed out with behemoth radiators, yet powerfull enough to cool an old Haswell-E 5820K maxing out for long periods. Bare in mind the CPU is back on stock voltage, but it ran at 40x all-core with absolutely no issue. At stock clocks it was completely inaudable in the DB900 (a quiet case) while maxing out. This is very impressive from such a slim cooler, knowing that Haswell chips are silly hot as soon as you break stock clocks. I wouldn't overvolt on this, but there's certainly some overhead if you're wanting to pip up those clock a tad without going too crazy. Pro: +++ Very impressive size-to-performance ratio +++ Lovely visuals, high quality +++ Veeeeery quiet. Has a strange gritty sound but almost inaudable! Con: -- Uses awkward small wrench nuts for mounting, why not use thumbscrews like everyone else? Fits the aesthetic I guess. Honestly a life saver, its a very pretty little thing, well made. I've been watercooling for a while but has genuinly given me more respect for modern air-cooelrs. I'm looking at my broken £500 waterloop and feeling a little blue knowing that this £40 slim air cooler has done more for me in a single day than years of tinkering. Absolutely recommend, most impressive. Kudos to be quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silent, excellent cooling 135mm fan is huge but this slim version fortunately helps it to fit in my mATX case. The slim version is still "enough" cooling efficiency, the fan on mid speed was enough to keep my processor around 35-40C even while utilised 100% on a benchmark. My case does have excellent cool air intake and airflow so less efficient systems might see temps a few degrees higher, but the 135mm fan on this cooler is obviously powerful enough to not require full speeds unless you're doing serious overclocking (I am running a 4690k at stock speeds). At these speeds the fan is inaudible unless I have my head next to it. I expected some noise at maximum processor load but I don't even have that, so this cooler is even better than I was hoping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful object This is a beautiful cooler. When I got it I showed everyone, including people who don't care about computer components (yes they exist) and they all agreed with me. A work of art.
Date published: 2016-01-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice and cool just a quick one, keeps my i5 2500k at 20-30c idle and max 55c on load so happy with that. The promlem was that it was shipped and came out the box bent at the top. Poor shipping from DPD and the packaging from scan was poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet cooler Super quiet cooler, had to open case to confirm fan was working
