Once it was finally on it worked well with a Noctua NF-A12x15, but I had to remove it to replace some RAM. Attempting to reinstall it was a total failure, so I'm returning it in hopes of finding the now-discontinued Nocua NH-L12 or something similarly shaped but under 66mm. The L9x65 I have now is passable, but very noisy given the small fan and slim gap between it and the side panel vent.
I've installed plenty of CPU coolers in my day, and this is by far the absolute worst. I shouldn't have to flex my motherboard to install cooling!
One thing to mention is that this isn't a simple "unclip the old cooler, clip on the new one" installation. It requires unscrewing the existing cooler mount from the motherboard, and installing the new mount, with some screws coming in from the bottom side of the motherboard. If your case doesn't give you full access to the area under the CPU from the back, you will need to remove the motherboard from the case for the install (as I did). If you built your PC in the first place you'll be fine; if you're intimidated by disassembling a PC this is not the cooler for you.
-Completely silent at low loads, reasonably quiet at max fan speed
-5 to 10 degree Celsius improvement over stock AMD Wraith Stealth cooler (for Ryzen 5 3600)
-Relatively easy installation
-All required tools and mounting hardware included - even a screwdriver
-You can add another fan if you really wanted to
-No clearance issues with I/O shield or tall RAM
-AMD mounting instructions could use refinement and diagrams that don't show the Intel bracket
-Easily bent fins
-Fan doesn't have sleeved cables
-Very tall - check your case clearance before buying
-One color option
-No RGB option
I purchased this cooler to replace the stock Wraith Stealth cooler that came with my Ryzen 5 3600. While the stock cooler offers good enough performance for daily use and gaming, its high-pitched noise and small fan size gave it a very intrusive acoustic profile (translation: loud and annoying).
In looking for a CPU cooler, I wanted a unit with high acoustical efficiency - the quietest possible unit that could still keep my CPU at reasonable temperatures that wouldn't cause throttling under normal loads (so under ~80 degrees Celsius).
I had high hopes for the be quiet! Shadow Rock 3 cooler based on reviews, and I have to say it met and even exceeded all expectations. With the same fan curve from my stock cooler, it is completely silent under everyday use (60% PWM at idle/low-load temperatures) and dropped idle temps by around 5-10 degrees Celsius. When gaming, I can't hear it over my GPU fans (EVGA GeForce 1660 Super), and my CPU maintains the advertised boost clock. Even if I manually turn up the fans to the fastest speed, it's still reasonably quiet and is low pitched enough as to not be intrusive. be quiet! includes mounting hardware for a second fan should you want to do a push-pull setup, but I honestly can't see why you would unless you were seriously pushing a higher-end CPU
For $50, the only real complaints I have are that there aren't other color options (e.g.: all black or all white) or RGB options, and the AMD mounting instructions need refinement. The instructions tell you how to attach the mounting bracket to the motherboard, but then proceeds to show an Intel bracket when telling you how to mount the tower cooler. Additionally, the instructions tell you to mount the cooler on top of the CPU before putting on the screws and screwing them in. If you follow that step, as I did, you'll find that there is no room to squeeze the screws in under the large tower and will end up having to take the cooler off first, which is frustrating.

AMD Ryzen 1700X CPU, ASrock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming-ITX/ac motherboard, Antec Cube Special Edtition chassis.
Fitting this to an AMD system is a truly awful experience. It makes use of the stock HSF fittings on the motherboard with manual retention hooks. This is unlike the intel method which uses screws and a custom backplate, why they didnt do this for AMD I dont know.
In an ITX system you will most likely have to fit the heatsink & subsequently the fan whilst the motherboard is out of the chassis as there will unlikely be enough space for you to work with as its very fiddly.
The mounting bridge requires a huge amount of force to be placed onto the CPU & motherboard in order for the retention module to hook on at the other side. The way the retention hooks are screwed onto the bridge is an utter joke. I honestly would steer well clear on AMD systems with this fan. On an intel board this would easily be 4*
The reason it would still lose a star is the retention mechanism to keep the fan on the heatsink is quite poor and could spring off with a big jolt to the system, it really is held on by a thread. This applies to both AMD & intel here. Noctua's fan retention mechanism is 100% better than this.
However, once fitted the fan is inaudible on idle and light tasks. I've yet to get some proper gaming in and will update on the temps.
One thing is for certain, when I come to add RAM to my system (when the price drops) I will not be refitting this HSF, this is a one time use as I'm definitely avoiding pain of fitting this again.
Installation was fairly easy although a little fiddly. Instructions weren’t amazing but got the job done. You get fixings for both intel and AMD in the box which is nice.
The fan when operating is not overly noisy. I’ve not much to compare it to however but I can’t hear it when I’m gaming albeit I do wear a headset.
I use this I as part of a push/pull setup with the pull being the exhaust fan at the rear of the case. Temps on the 3600x sit in the 60 - 70 degree range and that’s with the stock thermal past and a case which has really bad airflow, not enough fans and which sits in the sun a bit too often (why haven’t I moved it!?). I was initially concerned that this fan wouldn’t be enough for the Ryzen but I couldn’t be happier with it. With a few extra case fans, better thermal paste and some better room positioning it should work even more betterer.
Be aware though that this fan is tall. You’ll want a fatter case to fit it all in as I have had to bend my case around the fan to fit it so measure you’re space up before you buy this.
I’m very happy with the cooler overall. I was back and forth about going to AIO cooling but the risk of leaking, the extra cost and the extra noise didn’t sell it over air cooling.
I highly recommend this or the Dark Rock version if you want that stealthy look. If you want a bit more cooling (and spend a little more) then try the dark rock pro 4. But be aware, that one is HUGE!!
Was found to be slightly lacking in the summer when the processor was being hit hard in a video conversion process and did let the processor temps creep upto 90-95C. Was still about 5C away from the danger point. But it's a software issue mainly as only one program I use hammers the CPU in this way.
Very quiet in operation too.
BUT if you regularly use an app that hammers your cpu then i would recommend the models with 2 fans instead.
Instructions are quite minimal but it's not exactly rocket science. Mounting system is well thought out and simple.
Unfortunately, the performance isn't up to par for 130W TDP. It is rated for 130W but on a Xeon 1650 at idle, on an open bench system (23°C ambient) and less than a minute after booting, the CPU sat at 49°C. That was with the fan running full whack between 1500-1600RPM. I thought that I must have messed up the mounting so unmounted, removed the thermal paste, reapplied (some MX4) new paste and reseated. No difference. I didn't bother with stress testing or even just running day to day tasks. That idle temp at full speed fan is simply too high for my liking.
I would venture that this cooler might be OK for 100W TDP or less. On a positive note, the fan is quiet even at full whack, and the fit and finish quality is excellent. It might be suitable for your system.
Once running, the unit runs very well: extremely quiet, and my CPU is 7 degrees cooler than before.
The downside on this delivery from Amazon E.U. was that parts were missing and the unit had obviously been tried on an AMD motherboard before. There was no thermal paste on the heatsink, where it is supposed to be 'pre-applied' for this model; one of the 2 retaining screws was missing for the AMD fixing bracket; and the cooling fins were bent and buckled around where the AMD bracket attaches to the cooler. I would guess that someone had struggled with it, then sent it back to Amazon, probably complaining that it didn't fit.
Not very good, Amazon: not checking properly before sending it to another customer; and not stating honestly that the product was a previously returned item. I have been building PCs for years, so worked around the problem to save the bother of sending the unit back.
