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.

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! Shadow Rock 2 Single Tower CPU Cooler, 4 Heatpipes, 1x120mm Silence-Optimised PWM Fan, 180W TDP, for Intel/AMD is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but insanely large I bought this cooler and my new motherboard at the same time, and putting them together made me very glad that my RAM is low profile! My CPU and mobo combination is an LGA1150 with MicroATX, but I think the situation would be pretty much the same with any full ATX too: do not pair this cooler with any of the spectacular Klingon-looking RAM types with tall headspreaders. You simply will not be able to insert all of the sticks, since the heatsink will cover one and possibly more slots (check reviews for photos of what I mean). This cooler overhangs all of my RAM sticks, with only just enough clearance to allow the sticks to be manoeuvred into position at an angle, since I had to remount the fan pointing into the case (else it would have collided with the card or been too close to the ceiling). That said, the cooler is impressive. The fan is as quiet as they come, and you'll have to look at it to know it's spinning. I suspect the gigantic heatsink does most of the work though. You should also Google for reviews if you intend to overlock. I've paired this with an i5 4440, so it will never be overclocked, but various reviews have expressed disappointment with its cooling in a heavily overclocked computer. For overclocks, Be Quiet!'s Dark Rock Pro 2 is said to be a better performer, but at stock speed this one's fine.

Questions & Answers

Does this come with the required apparatus to mount a second fan?

Asked by: Force
This cooler is sold as a single fan cooler so does not include the clips to mount a second fan.
