Shadow Rock 2 from BeQuiet!
 
I absolutely love the look of this. The fins don't seem to be soldered to the heat pipes though (like in the case of the HR-02 from Thermalright or Heligon HE02 from Silverstone). Who's the OEM for these?

I don't know the OEM, but a big part of the r&d of be quiet! coolers is done in Hamburg. I've seen the lab and some of the drawings and prototypes.

What's more interesting is the fan!
That's a completely different one than the actual lineup...
Maybe it's not a Protechnic fan anymore??

The fins are only soldered to the heatpipes in some heatsinks, most others just press-fit them. Does look good tho.

Heat sinks with soldered fins perform better, in fact all current "top performers" have the fins soldered to the heat pipes (all premium offerings from Prolimatech, Thermalright, Noctua and Phanteks, a few from Zalman also).

The design of the tower almost looks like something from Dynatron; but I doubt it's them.

Dynatron was my first guess also, but I doubt it's them.
