Reeven Okeanos RC-1402 CPU Cooler
Starting out with the top of the Okeanos, this time we see that there are in fact two identical fin stacks in this design. Once all of the fins are pressed on, a thicker aluminium plate is applied, one in either orientation, so that the Reeven name is easily read in any orientation.
Putting the Okeanos in its upright position, and looking across the front of the fin stack, we get a good idea of how the heat pipes run through the fins. We also get a good sense of the heat pipe configuration, which poses the thicker pipes in the middle, and two thinner ones on either side to help offset the load.
As we get the profile view of the Okeanos, we can see there isn't any offset in the pipes that would allow us to say one orientation is correct over another. In this design, the cooler is evenly distributed to either side of the base, so the cross bracket can evenly support it against the socket.
While the edges of the fins are cut flat, we can see that there are peaks and valleys cut into the fins to take advantage of the way most fans distribute air flow. It is lowest near the center to allow the fan to build up some pressure first, and near the edges it is higher, as less heat travels that far to the edges.
Looking up at this side of the Okeanos, we also see the center of the sides of these towers have been cut away. While it does very little for efficiency, it does add another angle to view from the top.
To fully see how the heat pipes are configured, we took the time to snap this image. The center pipes take on most of the work, running through the center of the cooler where most of the air flow is concentrated. As for the thinner pipes, they run out wide, and are much closer to the outer edges.
After removing the protective plastic cover for the base, we grabbed a thumbscrew, and set it on the base to show the finish. While it appears to be nearly a mirror in its reflection, looking closer shows the faintest trace of very fine milling marks. The center of the base is slightly convex, and does not deflect until way outside of the contact area.
Grabbing the fans, and following the instructions, we put the 120mm on the front of the Okeanos with the 140mm fan in the middle.
Looking from the side with the fans now in place, it is easier to see how the smaller fan affords more room where it is needed most. As for the center 140mm fan, it does sit very low in the cooler, and will not raise the overall height of the cooler. It will also supply a good amount of air right near the power delivery systems on the motherboard.
