And elegant looks

Shadow Rock 3 provides impressive cooling of 190W TDP and is designed for those searching for high performance air cooling and a low noise level. The brushed aluminum top cover with a bi-color surface adds a touch of elegance to this premium cooler.


Even at 100% PWM function, noise is a mere 24.4dB(A)

A high fin pitch and low air resistance ensure the best possible performance in combination with the chosen fan. The decoupled Shadow Wings 2 120mm PWM high-speed fan operates at only 24.4 dB(A) even at the maximum speed of 1,600 rpm.


Perfect for silent air-cooled systems

The Shadow Rock 3 can be installed on all popular motherboards and its asymmetrical construction saves a lot of space. The memory slots in front of the cooler will not be blocked.


Maximizes conductance of heat

Thanks to Heat pipe Direct Touch (HDT) technology the heat from the CPU is absorbed directly by the five 6mm high-performance nickel-plated copper heat pipes.


Easy to install

The be quiet! screwdriver included in the scope of delivery helps you install the cooler and the mounting kit on the motherboard easily from above.

“Shadow Rock 3 is the strongest cooler in the Shadow Rock series. The beefy design and brushed aluminum top cover makes Shadow Rock 3 look muscular and elegant at the same time – despite its size, Shadow Rock 3 fits on all popular motherboards.”
