be quiet! SHADOW ROCK LP Low Profile CPU Cooler 130W TDP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Shadow Rock LP 08/08/2015

This review is from: be quiet! SHADOW ROCK LP Low Profile CPU Cooler 130W TDP

Pros: Quiet- Even with the fan running at max RPM it is still relatively quiet.
Quality- this fan is the highest quality fan I have ever seen. They did not leave anything out except maybe a little engineering time (see cons).

Cons: I really like this fan and would love to give it 5-stars just based on it's quality, but it lacks in ease of installation. I have installed many similar 120mm low profile fans and this one was just slightly harder to install. I am annoyed enough by all of the manufacturers that can't figure out how to make an installation work without having to remove the motherboard. This one however was exceedingly stupid due to how two of the bolts installed for the Intel 1155-1150 platform.

Other Thoughts: I think what I said pretty well sums it up. The cooler is super high quality; I just think they dropped the ball in one area for socket 1155 installations.

RAIJINTEK ZELOS, Low profile CPU cooler, 3 pcs 6mm nickel plating Heat-pipe, 9015 PWM fan, Total height of 44mm including fan, Supports Intel & AMD modern CPU sockets and platforms
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Looks pretty cool, it's low profile and pretty easy install- oh pretty quiet also

Cons: Doesn't work any better that a stock Intel cooler; my temps were the same or higher.

Other Thoughts: I knew I was buying a cheap cooler and not to expect too much, but this is really not worth the time unless you are just trying to replace a bad stock cooler.

EVGA Z97 Stinger (111-HR-E972-KR) Core 3D LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It looks cool and runs good.

Cons: Even for an ITX this board greatly lacks USB headers. I wish I would have done a little more reading on it. If you have USB ports on the front of your case you will find this board is greatly lacking in a way to hook them up. I suppose you can always nix having a video card and buy a PCI-E usb card. :-(
