A European powerhouse the silent storm known as be quiet! is finally making its ways to the shores of the United States. Known for quality products with a certain silent flare the be quiet! cooling and power options are nothing to scoff at.

Players like Corsair and Enermax better watch because something quiet might be sneaking up on them.

Multi-rail for extra stability! Blah blah. Which is better? How does this apply to me? Keep reading, and I may just give you an answer.
