Product Overview

Slim and Compact Design

Thanks to its asymmetrical and compact construction Pure Rock Slim is the perfect choice for PC cases that have limited space. It allows full configuration of RAM memory banks. For this reason the cooler is compatible with a vast array of equipment and allows many possible installation configurations.

High Cooling Efficiency

Pure Rock Slim is aimed at the essential category of PC systems. With 120W TDP it offers an astonishingly high cooling capacity for this category.

High-Performance Heatpipes

Pure Rock Slim is equipped with three heat pipes that have aluminium caps. This is the key to its great cooling performance, because they transport the heat to optimum locations on the cooling fins.

Silence-Optimised Operation

The seven-bladed silence-optimised 92mm be quiet! PWM fan with high-quality sleeve bearing facilitates the best balance between cooling performance and silent operation. The fan blades are airflow-optimised to reduce noise-generating turbulence.

• A high 120W TDP cooling efficiency.
• Full configuration of RAM memory banks in PC cases with limited space.
• Three high-performance 6mm heat pipes with aluminium caps.
• Silence-optimized, seven blade 92mm be quiet! fan (max. 25.4dB(A)).
• PWM variable speed operation to help balance cooling and quietness.
• Brushed aluminium finish.
• 3-year manufacturer’s warranty.

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.

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.

be quiet! Pure Rock Slim Single Tower CPU Cooler, 1x 92mm Silence-Optimised PWM Fan, 3x 6mm Copper Heatpipes, Intel/AMD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good at cooling, hard to fit This is the first CPU cooler I've fitted. It's doing an excellent job at keeping my CPU cool in a Fractal Design Mini C case. Idle temps of 25-28 C! Be aware it is very awkward to clip the fan to the heat sink fins.
Date published: 2019-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cooler, Keeps my 860k nice and cool. Easy to install apart from putting the fan on, afraid i was gonna bend the fins! A couple of the fins were bent slightly on the corners not anything concerning. 9/10
Date published: 2018-11-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeping it cool I used this cooler on my 2016 build with a light overclock i7 6700k 4.5Ghz in gaming sessions it sits between 55-65c never seen it past 65c and for the prices its great and the fan is effective yet quiet... will be using this in my sons i5 8600k build need I say more... :-)
Date published: 2018-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from fab value This is smaller than many of Be Quiet other coolers but it works great. The bottom is flat unlike some of Cooler Master's heat pipe coolers. There are YouTube videos showing how they're installed. On YouTube is a 3-part video “The production of be quiet! CPU coolers” showing how they're made. You won't believe how much work goes into making them. They are like jet engines and much money is involved with their construction. Inside the pipes is copper powder and a tiny amount of water which flows up and down, up and down. The pipes have to do an extremely demanding task as efficiently as possible. You really are getting some high precision engineering. That's why the makers have to test them without any fans running.

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

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
Asked by: Ben7243
Yes it will, there are max heights for coolers in the products specs.

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

AM4 bracket in 2019

Hi, the last time someone asked this question was 2 years ago. Now though, be quiet!'s own website states that the Pure Rock Slim is AM4 compatible out of the box. Are the ones sold by Scan AM4 compatible and has the AM4 bracket included?
Asked by: Jeffrey212312
Good Afternoon, We did receive stock for this item last month, unfortunately, the product page does not list this as AM4 compatible so we would not be able to guarantee that this will come with a bracket! Kind Regards,
Answered by: LukeW
Date published: 2019-11-04

Can you please recommend which mounting bracket to use with this. Thanks.

I've recently bought this and stupidly forgot to buy a mounting bracket for it.
Asked by: girst
