Really nice cooler, took the fan off the case lid and put it with the gpu fan
Easy install and works like a champ
I committed myself to Be Quiet when I bought CPU cooler and fans for my PC, and I don't regret that a tiny bit. My mITX rig is on the desk, so I definitely wanted to be as quiet as possible (and relatively cheap...). The Shadow Rock is a tad overkill for a i5-4460, considering the 84W vs 130W TDP values. It does it's job very well.
I got a LP cooler because at the time I was looking at small cases that had really low cooler clearances (CORSAIR carbide Air 240, among others). It's not required for the 301 - a tower cooler is probably better due to airflow direction, but it's still a great cooler Easy to attach, good cooling and super quiet. Trade off is that its not quire as efficient as bigger ones, but for what it is it does really well. Only potential issue could be RAM or VRAM for some. I was able to orient mine in a way that I could fit it without covering my RAM and waste the RGB underneath a heatsink, but others may not be able to.
It's quiet and very low profile. I was able to install this inside a SG13 and it keeps the CPU very cool.
