be quiet! Dark Rock Slim Review

The be quiet! Dark Rock Slim CPU air cooler is on the test bench at Vortez today. I don't want to spoil the ending but this all-black cooler received high marks.

A little over a year back, be quiet! Introduced both the Dark Rock 4 and Dark Rock Pro 4, both of which were received very well. However, one common complaint was their sheer size, often fouling on tall RAM modules or just that it doesn’t fit into their chassis. Well, may we introduce the be quiet! Dark Rock Slim, a tower cooler which aims to resolve those issues while retaining a 180W TDP and 23.6dB(A) noise rating.
