Question  does it fit? by Carl

Will this fit in a bitfenix comrade midi-tower and fx-8320,r9 280,600w power supply and Corsair Vengeance Jet Black Low Profile ram


Answer by shaund on Saturday, June 27, 2015
Hi Carl,

It doesn't look like it will fit in the case, another option would be the Shadow Rock Topflow. (qc-57186)

About the extra fan! by Reako

Thank you shaund I went to the link and confirmed they have quickly replied to me and explained I can purchase an extra clip for £1.81 but I need to buy a fan (120x120x25mm). Do you have a similar fan to the original one in stock?

Thank you Shaund for your help!

Response by shaund
Hi Reako,

This fan (qc-49495) should be either the same or a very similar version of the fan that is already on the Cooler.

Question  Clips & Fans by Reako

I would like an extra fan on this and I would need the clip, is this available and can you link the product to me if it is?

Answer by shaund on Friday, June 12, 2015
It doesn't look like be quiet! sells the clips separately, the best thing to do would be to get in contact with them directly:

Question  Shadow Rock 2 Silent CPU Cooler by Matt

Hi Would this work in the following setup below:

Intel i5 4690K 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Quad-Core Unlocked Processor

Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX 970 WindForce OC 4GB


Gigabyte Z97P-D3 Intel Z97 ATX Motherboard

550W Corsair VS Series 80+ Power Supply

Corsair SPEC01 Midi Tower Gaming Case


Answer by shaund on Tuesday, June 2, 2015
Hi Matt, for that case I would more likely recommend the be quiet! Shadow Rock TopFlow (57186,) the SPEC01 is quite a narrow case and will not hold this CPU cooler, the TopFlow is a more low profile cooler. Other changes to recommend would be to go up to a 600W PSU and get make sure you have Low Profile RAM as some aftermarket coolers can get in the way of taller RAM.

Question  Corsair Spec 03 by Tyler C

Will this cooler fit into a build using a Corsair Spec-03 case?
