The uncommon and very yellow Reeven Okeanos RC-1402

The Okeanos RC-1402 is a large hunk of metal, standing 140x135x163mm and weighing in at 1145g when both the 12cm and 14cm fans are attached.  This makes it just a bit smaller than Morry's beloved Noctua NH-D15, which will allow it to fit into slightly tighter builds.  [H]ard|OCP tested it on an i7-4770K and found its performance to be acceptable but not outstanding in any way.  Unfortunately, the price does stand out as it costs more than coolers which offer equivalent performance. Drop by for a look at their whole review.

"The Reeven Okeanos RC-1402 is not exactly a new CPU air cooler, but it is not widely available in the United States so it has not gotten a lot of coverage in North America. The cost for the cooler is not low, and two staggered-sized fans are included in the box, so we have fairly high performance expectations for this twin tower cooler."

Reeven Polariz has well endowed knobs for a fan controller

Indeed the entire build of this three channel fan controller is much more impressive than you might expect from a ~$50 product.  The body is constructed of metal as are the knobs and they have chosen a classic single colour design as opposed to an RGB light show.  It ships with an extra thermal probe, four in total, as well as three lengthy 3-pin to 3-pin/4-pin connectors.  Each channel can handle up to 3A and reports current fan RPM, temperature and voltage load on the LCD inside each of the three knobs on your front panel.  Check out the full review at Modders Inc.

"Balancing stylish elegance and practicality, Reeven's new Polariz 3-channel fan controller is not made of plastic like a typical 5.25" bay fan controller. It is enclosed in steel with three large 42mm metal knobs for controlling three independent channels, each supporting up to 3A. The design, Reeven claims, was inspired by a car dashboard. While it is less colorful than … Read more."

Introduction and Specifications

The JUSTICE from REEVEN is a tower cooler with six heatpipes, and a 120 mm PWM fan with distinctive yellow-and-black styling. But what really matters is performance, and that’s what we’re going to find out about as we pit it against the Intel Broadwell-E test system.

Have you heard of REEVEN? A search on Amazon reveals only a pair of older models, but Newegg carries the full range of coolers and fan controllers the Taiwanese company offers. Prices are low for this segment, with their CPU coolers starting at $24.99, and this JUSTICE cooler priced at $42 on Newegg. What you get for this price sounds impressive on paper, and I wasted no time in finding out how that translated into real-world results.

REEVEN sent along a second 120 mm COLDWING 12 fan for us to test with the JUSTICE, as the cooler includes installation hardware for a dual-fan setup, and I tested the cooler with my Core i7-6800K in both configurations - with both stock and overclocked CPU loads.

The Four-Eyes Touch has a front screen divided into seven distinct sections, all touch capable. The upper four sections are tied to individual fan channels each supporting up to a 2.5A fan with total power provided of up to 30 watts. The lower right section controls the unit warning sound and display temperature with the lower left used to set the display to one of seven colors. The lower middle section is used to set the fan speed, you simply swipe your finger across the section to increase or decrease the active channel's fan speed.

Reeven is a new comer to the computer cooling space, offering a wide range of coolers and fans for all aspects of the industry. The latest members of their cooler lineup, the Okeanos and Brontes coolers, offer high performance in two very different form factors. The Okeanos is a large dual radiator, dual fan cooler while the Brontes is a low profile C-shaped cooler touting compatibility across most form factors. While the Okeanos offers support for all known CPU and board types, the Brontes supports all mainstream systems with the exception of the Intel 2011-based CPUs and boards.

Reeven gets heavy, the Ouranos heatsink

Subject: Cases and Cooling | October 8, 2015 - 02:38 PM |
Tagged: reeven, ouranos

The previous models of Reeven we have seen reviewed were for SFF systems, the Steropes and Brontes.  The Ouranos that Modders-Inc recently reviewed is somewhat larger, though nowhere near the mass of the serious coolers which Morry prefers.  It stands at 143x161x95mm (5.6x6.3x3.7") and weighs just over a kilogram at 1030g.  The design allowed for the heatsink to be installed in any orientation without interfering with RAM or components close to the socket and the adjustable fan speed lets you chose your own balance between noise and cooling performance.  Read on to see the full review.

"There was a time when the prevalent design philosophy for CPU cooler design was "the bigger, the better". That is no longer the case as users now look for smarter implementations that are much more convenient and functional than simply brute-force cooling. Smaller coolers present the advantage of better compatibility with various components so the latest generation of large CPU …"

Need a heatsink but have less than 75mm of clearance? Reveen can do that!

Subject: Cases and Cooling | August 13, 2015 - 02:26 PM |
Tagged: reeven, brontes, SFF

Reveen has not made a name for providing high end coolers for heavy overclockers, instead they focus on impressively short coolers for small systems.   The Reeven Brontes, including the fan, is a mere 105x59x114mm (4.1x2.1x4.5") and a skinny 325g in weight.  The heatsink will mount on any modern motherboard including the new LGA1151 and the PWM fan will allow you control over the speed if noise is a concern.  Modders-Inc rather liked the cooler, sure it will not cool a CPU with a 140W TDP but can certainly handle low powered CPUs in SFF cases.  One caveat, the 100mm may be hard to replace if it starts to have issues as it is not a common size.

"You cannot really judge how capable a CPU cooler is just by looking at it. If it well-made enough, even size can be deceptive which is good news for those who do not want the bulk of a tower style cooling solution and prefer to save some vertical space, although the question still remains."

The Reeven Steropes cooler is flat as a pancake

Subject: Cases and Cooling | January 23, 2015 - 06:54 PM |
Tagged: reeven, steropes, low profile, air cooling

The Reeven heatsink stands a mere 125x60x129 mm and weighs barely over a pound even with the included fan installed.  This will be perfect for an incredibly thin system and with its small foot print it won't interfere with your RAM as it is not big enough to overhang the DIMMs on most boards.  This will by necessity reduce the cooling capabilities as you can see in techPowerUp's testing with an i7-4770K.  For those looking for a tiny system that is not going to be an issue and at full speed the fan doesn't reach more than 47dBA so it is also good for those who desire quiet as well as small size.  This one is worth checking out if you are looking at this type of build.

"Reveen looks to impress with their small-form-factor friendly Steropes low-profile CPU cooler. At just 60 mm tall, this diminutive cooler may lack size, but it certainly doesn't lack style. Offering solid performance and low noise, it might be just what you need for a SFF or HTPC."
