Intel Branding Part I
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.

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! Pure Rock Slim Single Tower CPU Cooler, 3x6mm Copper Heatpipes, 1x92mm Silence-Optimised Fan, PWM, Aluminium is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool & Cheap For a relatively simple design this cooler is rather efficient. For the past 24 hours I've been running 3 cores on an i5 haswell at 100% load. Monitoring with Core Temp 1.7 the cpu hasn't yet got past 65 degrees. Im unaware of the ambient temperature but its easily above "room temperature" the only issue I had with this cooler is the pretty cheap feeling mounting system, it's the same kind as the stock cooler for intel it does the job ok but isn't the easiest to install.
Date published: 2017-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade! I got this to replace the standard cool that comes with Intel CPUs. Having monitored my temps before installing I can easily say this outperformed my expectations. My CPU runs 10 degrees cooler with this installed while under a high load!
Date published: 2017-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely silent, as expected I've come to expect absolute silence from brands such as Be Quiet, Noctua, and Phanteks. This cooler delivers. I was originally a bit skeptical of how quiet this cooler would be, due to the fan being 92mm instead of 120mm or 140mm, but upon trying it, I've not heard it make any noise. As for temperature, it took one of my Sandy Bridge chips, an i5-2500, from 71C max on the stock cooler to 58C max. This gives you significant overclocking headroom should you so desire it. The mounting solution for this cooler is not quite as good as the mounting solution as Noctua and Phanteks coolers. Unfortunately, for Intel boards, it uses the push-pin system, although the push pins are of a much higher quality than those on a stock Intel cooler. For AMD boards, it uses a metal bar which clamps onto the AMD CPU retention bracket. These are both fine, but an inexperienced user make fear breaking the push-pins (or outright break them) as I used to fear. There is some pre-applied thermal paste on the bottom, so make sure to clean off the existing thermal paste on your CPU to avoid making a mess around the socket. This is a fantastic cooler overall, and much more cost effective than the bulkier offerings from Be Quiet, Noctua, and Phanteks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Brought this for a build i was doing for a friend, it was a budget build and i do not like stock coolers but since it was only cooling an I5 4460 it didnt need to be anything fancy. Even after an hour of CPU stress testing full 100% load on all cores i only saw a max temp of low 50's with no noticeable noise from the cooler..... for £20 this is an excellent cooler.

Questions & Answers

AM4 bracket

Does this cooler comes with AM4 bracket? Or do I have to contact Be Quiet about it myself?
Asked by: Mateusz
The manual/install instructions only cover AM2(+) & AM3(+) using the supplied AMD metal mounting clamp, I believe AM4 uses a different mounting system unlike previous sockets which were backwards compatible for coolers

Would this fit in a Corsair spec-01 case?

I’d like to purchase this but unsure whether it’s height will be too large for the Corsair spec-01 case
