After telling you all about the Light Base 900 & 600 cases, let’s take a look at be quiet! heatsinks. A new range of AIOs, the Light Loop, makes its appearance, while the Dark Rock 5 is exhibited on the brand’s stand. Finally, new fans make their appearance: the Light Wings LX!

If be quiet! was known for its sobriety, things are about to change. The aRGB lighting on the top of the Dark Rock Elite was already a red flag… Now, with the AIO Light Loop, multicolored lighting arrives in style… As you can see, the kit clearly puts the accent on it.

For example, the pump cover features a translucent lid to better diffuse the light. On the fan side, we find the Light Wings LX mentioned in a previous article.

Available in 240 mm and 360 mm versions, these kits will be compatible with current mainstream platforms. The compatibility statement mentions support for LGA-1851/1700/1200/115x boards, as well as AMD’s AM4 and AM5.

For prices, expect to pay €130/135 in 240 mm black/white. The 360 mm models will be more expensive: €160/165 in black/white. Launch is scheduled for September.

The Dark Rock 5 is the single-tower version of the new generation of be quiet! heatsinks. It shares the same aesthetic as the Dark Rock Pro 5 and Elite, with a removable, magnetic aluminum cover. Moreover, the design is rather discreet, with an all-black coating over the entire heatsink.

The heatsink itself features a total of six copper heat pipes, each 6 mm in diameter, meeting at an eccentric nickel-plated copper base. The aim is to avoid encroaching on the RAM.

On the ventilation side, we find a 120 mm Silent Wings 4 mill. The latter also features rubber silentblocks to reduce parasitic vibrations.

Price: €70, with availability scheduled for this month.

Finally, the famous Light Wings LX fans from be quiet! These are clearly focused on bright lighting, with blades illuminated by 16 aRGB diodes. In addition, for better light diffusion, the blades feature a frosted effect.

These fans are available in 120 mm and 140 mm models, with two speed profiles: PWM and PWM high speed. The 120 mm model will operate at 1600 and 2100 rpm respectively, while the 140 mm model will operate at 1200 and 1800 rpm.

Pricing is expected to be around €20 per unit, with availability in September.
