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.

be quiet! Pure Rock Compact Single Tower CPU Cooler, 4 Heatpipes, 1x120mm Silence-Optimised PWM Fan, 130W TDP, Intel/AMD is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant purchased this to cool my i7 6700k was previously using a seidon 120 water cooling kit wich is terrible by the way.but im very pleased with this its quite and looks great in case if you have a windowed case and more importantly keeps my cpu nice and cool.after running prime 95 stress test for 20 minutes highest temp reached was 75c and thats with an overclock to 4.4ghz and prime being very heavy test bench so would never normaly putt my computer through that much strain anyway so very impressed.Only little niggle i have is theres no antivibration mounts for the fan to mount to heat sink but not a major deal would highly recomend this product. And great service from Scan as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty darn good and silent Max Temp under load : 60 degrees Idle Temp : 25-30 degrees Temps with a core i7 6700k at stock speed with 4 case fans. I don't even notice the fan speed ramp up its just 100% silent. Looks stylish and suits the PC well. Happy bunny :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic cheap cooler!! Ok I'm not gonna lie this cooler is being used on a i3 haswell a bit overkill I originally had a closed loop fitted and well this tower is beating the closed loops for example gaming pure rock cpu max temp was 32c closed loop max temp was 46c running virtual box Pure rock max temp was 34c closed loop hit 51c Now yes im running a i3 but this cpu cooler would be fantastic for an i5 or even an i7 specially on skylake

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job very nicely Bought two of these to cool a pair of Xeon E5-2640 V3s and they seem to be doing the job very nicely keeping them at around 35 degrees at idle, which is fairly impressive considering they are 8 core CPUs with not more than an inch or so between the two coolers. Comes with a plethora of mounting solutions which despite looking quite confusing aren't too bad at all to install once you've got it figured out, just bear in mind you might not need half the screws etc that it comes with, so don't feel too nervous if its all mounted up nicely and you still have half a box of screws left! When it arrives the fan isn't assembled onto the cooler so you'll need to do this yourself once you've attached the cooler to your motherboard, but it only takes two seconds if you follow the instruction booklet. Only slight problem I had was when the coolers arrived the boxes had obviously taken quite a knock in the post, and the protective plastic caps which cover the pre applied thermal paste had come off and bits of cardboard box had got stuck all in it which isn't ideal for making good thermal contact with your CPU, however was easily resolved by wiping all the paste off the coolers and reapplying some other thermal grease I had laying around to the processor, annoying but not a major problem. Overall very impressed, good quality cheap cooler which does the job nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value Under heavy load the fan is pretty much silent and with a single fan keeps my cpu idle at about 33 degrees under heavy load about 44. can't go wrong with buying this.
Date published: 2015-08-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from a lot quieter and cooler than the intel stock cooler so far so good. 10 degree drop at idle and havent seen anything over 55 yet (i5 [email protected]). im glad i went with this over evo 212 as this only just fits in my case. my only gripe atm is some of the fins where warped. might have returned if it was a flagship product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be Quiet is a bit mssleading Just built myself a brand new PC mostly new components from who as always delivered on time etc.etc. After building it with the stock Intel Fan, in a coolermaster silent case I was very happy except the slight buzz of the fan, bit of temperature monitoring and playing about I deduced the only one I could hear was the CPU fan, so decided to treat myself to a new cooler. Read the reviews and checked the prices, settled on the be quiet! Pure Rock. It is quite well made, and popping out the motherboard again to fit it was no hardship, was quite pleased with the way it went together. Until I fitted the fan and turned it on. Temperature of my CPU was down about 2 - 4 degrees at idle and the fan speed was about half of the stock cooler so can't fault the efficiency of the heat pipes. BUT even at half the speed the 120mm fan makes more noise than the stock Intel fan, in fact it is so loud you can hear it from the next room. hence the low star and quality rating, it is purely the fan that lets it down, fittings and radiator were nicely made and it's a stock 120mm fan so when budget allows I can improve on that too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! My processor went from frying eggs to chilling beer! Would recommend! Was fairly simple to install however the instructions could have been more informative, all in all a great product though

Questions & Answers

Does this CPU cooler come with thermal compound?

Asked by: Josephlyons
Yes pre installed compound included
Answered by: BeginnersTech
Date published: 2016-07-23

Can you fit a second fan on the other side?

Asked by: Yokie
It looks like you can in my case, but it only gives you a single bracket so unless you wanna jerry rig one i'd say no. (you could just bend out a large paperclip)
