Reeven Justice RC-1204 Review


Reeven Justice RC-1204 Testing:

Testing of the Reeven Justice RC-1204 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 Justice RC-1204 has no problems keeping the 4770K CPU with a stock temp of  27 °C using the included 120mm fan. With the CPU under a load, the temp ramps up to 73 °C, which is warm, but definitely not in the danger zone.

As for overclocking, we are at 33 °C at idle, which is just fine, and close to six degrees warmer than stock at 79 °C when we add the load, which is excellent. I was expecting it to be somewhat warmer, but the heat is held to 79 °C. It actually comes in at the low end of the test coolers and, of course, the lower - the better. So the Reeven Justice RC-1204 proves that it can keep your CPU cool, whether your system is a daily driver or geared up for a mild overclock. The fan is reasonably quiet, even at full speed. In fact, the fans in the test case for the most part drown out the cooler fan. The Reeven Justice RC-1204 and the Reeven Hans RC-1205 (previously reviewed) turn out similar performance numbers, and both are able to handle the heat.
