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.

The Okeanos CPU cooler is constructed of dual radiator towers connected via copper heat pipes running through a copper cooling plate. The unit comes with two fans, a front 120mm fan and a 140mm fan in its center, but supports up to three fans. Reeven uses the industry standard hybrid approach, combining a nickel-plated copper base and heat pipes with aluminum-finned radiators for superior heat transfer and dissipation. With an MSRP of $75, the Reeven Okeanos comes with at a premium price point to match its flagship design.

Reeven took a different tactic in designing the Brontes CPU cooler, constructing a low profile cooler compatible with even the more restrictive board designs. The unit comes standard with a thin 120mm fan sitting horizontally on top of the radiator. The cooler itself features a C-shaped design with nickel-plated copper base plate and heat pipes feeding into the aluminum-finned radiator. With an MSRP of $39.95, the Reeven Brontes offers a quality design at an affordable price point.

Nice names.

Okeanos = Greek for ocean (written with latin characters - Greeklish)

Brontes = Greek for thunders (the same as above)

The aftermarket cooler market is already saturated as is, and even more so with AMD giving away decent ones now. That being said, it looks like a solid product. But are we really choosing aftermarket coolers on anything other than aesthetics anymore?

Every price, every level of performance, has a satchel full of trinkets to choose from. In that spirit, I think I like the Cryorig C7. But this is sparkly, too.
