It is not uncommon for companies to have two product lines that essentially do the same thing. Of course there are always differences like the Ethernet controller on a motherboard or the cooler on an overclocked video card. However, under all that you have something that relates to something else that company offers. bequiet!, the German based cooling and power supply manufacturer, is no exception and offers two basic styles to their heatsinks, the Dark Rock and the Shadow Rock.
In this review we will be looking at bequiet! Shadow Rock Slim. This is a medium performance cooling solution based on the Shadow Rock design principles. The focus is to provide the same great cooling performance and just make it less expensive. You get the same bequiet! design but you’ll have to settle for a few sacrifices when it comes to style and cooling capacity.
