be quiet! puts Shadow Rock cooler on a diet
Quote:
Designed for smaller chassis and tighter confines, the Slim aims to offer top-notch performance in a more compact package. In order to make it happen, the cooler uses tightly-packed curved fins to aid airflow, a new mounting mechanism that promises higher pressure, and four 6mm heatpipes that are sourced from the same manufacturer who supplies Apple.

A slim 135mm SilentWings fan is included as part of the bundle, with the heatsink allowing for a second, optional, fan to be mounted on the opposite side. We're intrigued to see how much performance be quiet! has managed to eke out of this narrow design, but we willl have to wait a while until we see real-world numbers as the Shadow Rock Slim, priced at $39, won't be reaching stores until November 2013. In the meantime, here's be quiet!'s Aaron Licht with a hands-on overview

Shadow Rock Slim $39
slim 135mm SilentWings fan
four 6mm heatpipes (from Dark Rock series - high performance)
