Reeven Justice RC-1204 Introduction:
It has been five years since OCC has reviewed a product from Reeven. The Reeven RCCT-0901SP was reviewed here on OCC in February of 2009, and a lot has changed since then. And I admit I had not heard of Reeven until the Justice RC-1204 and the Hans RC-1205 showed up at my door. Reeven has a line of CPU coolers, fans, and a nice fan controller. There is even an Extreme Cooling Cup for "Professional Extreme Overclockers" and a warning that "This is not for everybody". Well, that is ok because being mere mortals, we are only focusing on the Justice RC-1204 CPU cooler.
From the Reeven website: "REEVEN is a newly established international manufacturer of PC related products. REEVEN's product lines includes the best quality of advanced CPU coolers, Cooling Fans, Power Supply Units, PC Cases and many other items. the target of our products will be a wide range of audience under our philosopohy 'Professional Quality Gears', for products that will withstand the highest demand." So, I have the Justice RC-1204 and the Hans RC-1205 ready to be reviewed. The Justice RC-1204 is somewhat larger and will be the one I'm reviewing today.
Reeven Justice RC-1204 Closer Look:
The packaging for the Reeven Justice RC-1204 has a lot going on for such a small box. All sides of the box are full of information and graphics. The top of the box shows a nice view of the top of the cooler, showcasing the Reeven logo on the top logo plate, and lists the socket compatibility. The front of the box shows the cooler fan up front and has some useful dimensional information.
The bottom and back side of the package have technical information and specifications in six languages.
The sides show the universal socket clips, socket compatibility, and a very detailed feature description: "Reeven Original Unique Fan Clips design for easy fan mounting." This, I've got to see...
Opening the box, right away you are greeted by a bright yellow fan and a maze of shiny copper tubes. No fancy packaging or foam padding, but everything seems to be in good order. The base rests against the hardware box. Out of the box we have the cooler and fan, the instruction manual, and all the hardware separated in Ziploc bags.
The hardware consists of mounting components for AMD and Intel installations. The yellow fan clips look interesting - a definite departure from the standard metal wire clips. The thermal paste is in a clear plastic pouch rather than a syringe-style dispensing tube.
The instruction sheet is well illustrated with a full parts list, and is laid out with easy-to-follow assembly and installation steps.
