Reeven may be a newer name when it comes to CPU cooling solutions, and as of not too long ago, we could say that with an honest face, because before looking at the pair of 140mm cooler they had sent to us, they were nothing more than a company we had seen in a few news blasts. However, looking at the Ouranos and the Okeanos CPU coolers, both 140mm fan cooled designs, we saw two things. First was the fact that they build a solid cooler with enough aesthetic appeal to be very relevant to many of the other top selling coolers at this time. The second thing we learned with those coolers is that Reeven loves the color yellow, and that is not lost on this latest submission either.

 

While both of those coolers were in the top end of the charts, the design that brings us here today has a slightly tougher road ahead of it. This is due to the fact that this cooler is not only more compact and will fit on a few more places that the previously mentioned coolers would not, it is also based with a 120mm fan in mind to cool its tower. It all seems pretty fitting that we just happened to have a run of 120mm coolers all lined up like this, but it will make it easy to compare this new Reeven submission against a couple of coolers that did really well for themselves, and also did so with a very light attack on the wallet.

 

Though it may be an uphill climb for the Reeven Justice RC-1204 CPU cooler that we are looking at currently, as the SE 214X does a very nice job for the cost, and the Pure Rock does all that and offers near complete silence, so the bar is set pretty high. For those in the market for a 120mm fan based cooler, and like it to be dressed up and presentable as well, this does give the Pure Rock a hard run for its money in that department, so settle in as we cover the specifications, see what the Reeven Justice costs, and after an in depth look at it, see just how well it stacks up against others still so fresh in our minds.

Reeven is not so forthcoming when it comes to delivering all the specifications many users like to see. They do show us that the Justice also goes by the name RC-1204, and that it is fully capable of installing to all current AMD and Intel sockets. We then see that the cooler is 162mm tall, that it is 131mm in width, and that it is 105mm deep with the fan installed. They then move to the fan dimensions where we see it is a 25mm thick 120mm diameter fan and slip in that there are six 6mm diameter heat pipes. It is said to run at speeds from 300 to 1500 RPM delivering a maximum of 82.1 CFM with only 0.67 mmH2O of pressure to help it along. We also see that this fan will deliver up to 29.8 dB(A) of noise when in use, and combined with the cooler body, it weighs 930 grams in total.

 

Here is what they don't mention. The fins are of course aluminum, but there are 53 fins in this stack, and yet a cap fin that is much thicker and made of aluminum. The top plate is also where the aesthetics are added with holes and the Reeven name on it. The do mention the pipes, but not that they and the base are made of copper, and then once assembled get a Nickel plating treatment. They do mention the fan, but they do not mention that the blades are bright yellow, nor do they address these yellow fan clips that are super simple in design, but are truly near genius in the way they work.

 

Current efforts to locate this cooler inside of the US is fruitless at this point, and while there is talk of them working hard to get into the US markets with a stronger show of force, most e-tailers are already full of many other designs which makes it very tough for Reeven to break out if you will. While we could not locate a live listing showing stock of the Justice RC-1204, in our emails we were told that the MSRP was set at $53 in the market on this side of the pond. While in and of itself, $53 for a CPU air cooler isn't out of the realm of affordable, but with the bar set so high with a pair of $35 submissions, Reeven and the Justice have a lot of work ahead of them.
