The be quiet! ultimate screwdriver is a must have tool for any PC builder. Designed for hard to reach mounting screws on air coolers. Available for $90 USD. For a limited time, includes the Dark Rock Pro 4 air cooler for free (requires a big ass case).
NOTE: This short video is a parody ad. When you buy the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 air cooler, the screwdriver is included. Considering how useful the screwdriver is after installing the air cooler, it’s more valuable than the air cooler itself.
The Be Quiet Silent Loop 2 All-In-One liquid cooler recently went on sale. I found that out when I saw the announcement on their Instagram account. But all the prices and availability were for the European Union. Where were the prices and availability for the United States? The bad news is that the Silent Loop 2 AIO won’t be coming to America.
When mounting the fans to the radiator of an AIO liquid cooler, they should fit tight against each other to maximize airflow. If a case has fan mounts inside the front panel, the flat metal frame will be between the fans and the radiator. Unless you have the Cougar MX330-G ATX case. The frame inside the front panel has raised vent holes and recessed screw holes. I used 20-year-old motherboard standoffs to mount the radiator to the back and the fans to the front of the frame. That ¼-inch gap between the fans and the radiator allows air to escape and blow back out the mesh front panel. It’s time to weatherstrip that gap!
Last year I posted two videos about the Be Quiet Pure Loop AIO 240mm Liquid Cooler. The first video I had to mount the AIO with the fans on the inside of the Cougar MX330-G ATX case. The long screws that came with the AIO weren’t long enough for the recessed screw holes in the front panel. The second video I used 20-year-old motherboard spacers to mount the AIO and the fans in the front of the case. Mounting the fans in front frees up space inside the case and RGB fans can shine through the front mesh panel. Since Be Quiet doesn’t make RGB fans, I got the Phanteks Halo Lux RGB Fan Frames to go on top of them. I’ll compare the RGB lighting on the white Shadow Wings 2 fan against the black Pure Wings 2 fan that comes with the AIO.
