Reeven Hans RC-1205 Review


Reeven Hans RC-1205 Testing:

Testing of the Reeven Hans RC-1205 will be accomplished by installing the cooler into the test system case rather than a test bench. Most systems are built and mounted into a (relatively) sealed chassis, so this method will be used to generate the idle and load results to give a real world view as to the cooling performance one can expect, based on the test system listed below. Of course, your results may vary by several degrees due to case design, case fan placement, and ambient air temperature. The CPU load is generated by Prime 95 version 27.9 for a period of two hours, with a cooldown period of one hour after the computer has returned to an idle state. Real Temp 3.70 is used to log the temperatures with the highest and lowest averages across the four cores of the Core i7 4770K test CPU. Ambient temperatures are kept at 24 °C during the testing to minimize the effect of temperature variations. Each cooler is tested with the manufacturer-supplied thermal compound as delivered.


Testing Setup:


Comparison Coolers:







At idle, the Reeven Hans RC-1205 has no problems keeping the 4770K CPU at 27 °C, and with a spread between 26 and 30 there really isn't a bad temp even if you hit the high end. With the CPU loaded and with no overclock, the temp rises to 74 °C, which is well within the expectations for an air cooler this size. Fan noise is minimal.

As for overclocking, we are at 35 °C at idle, which is just fine, and close to 7 degrees warmer than non-overclocked at 81 °C under load, which is not bad. I was expecting it to be a little warmer, but the heat is held to 81 °C. Again the fan noise is minimal and the case fans pretty much drown out the cooler fan. What I will call the new version of the Reeven Hans RC-1205 can still keep you cool whether your system is a daily driver or geared up for a mild overclock.
