    Wicked looking air cooler. Be Quiet makes some of the best looking products. Fans, CPU coolers and PSUs all look freaking sweet. If you have to go with AIR then this one looks like a great choice. All dark and wont clash with most color themese.

    Great review Vinny!! Thanks buddy!!!

    My test rig winds up that way a lot of the time. The fans and PSU are always in place, and the Dark Rock 3 is currently residing there, as well.

    Sure beats going with a CLC that requires ear protection at similar performance levels......

    As usual, good read Vinny. I like your testing methods, and this cooler is top notch too.
    The fan blade design is very interesting and probably helps make the cooler so quiet.
    Cooling is pretty awesome. $89.00 seems fair for this,.........

    Thanks Guys

    I have used and tested a lot of air coolers over the years and although I thought it was a pain in the butt
    to install.

    I have to say its one of the best I have come across as far as quality, performance, and how quiet it is.

    And let me not forget to mention how stunning it looks with the black nickle plated finish, and capped off with the brushed aluminum roof up top.

    I agree with you on everything and although its worth the price.
    I think that price may be on par or close to some
    of the AIO water cooling units available.

    But it's good to use air too.
    My Enermax ETS-T40-VD and my NZXT Havik-140 air coolers are quite functional and quiet too.

    Great review Vinny. Thanks.
    Anyone who wants to go with AIR, this CPU cooler looks like a very good choice, good performer to. It dark color (black) scheme, will go easily with any color themes of PC builds.
    Be Quiet makes some excellent performing and looking products (fans, CPU coolers, PSUs...). I like it.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Looking at pictures of his RAM and yours, his is shorter than yours by a lot. I would say that the answer is no, your RAM is too tall.
