Reeven Kelveros (RC-1202) CPU Cooler Review
Ryan Martin+ / 2 years ago
The Kelveros (RC-1202) is the second CPU cooler we are reviewing from the emerging company Reeven. Reeven have recently moved into the European and UK markets after starting up in Asia. International consumers should be able to buy Reeven products from QuietPC from the end of September 2012 if all things go as planned.
We already had a look at their Arcziel 12 top-down CPU cooler and today we are moving onto the Kelveros CPU cooler. What strikes us about Reeven products so far is that they ooze build quality and style, yet seem to fall a bit short on the performance frontier.
We hope the Kelveros CPU cooler will offer a bit more bang-for-your-buck than the Arcziel 12 when it comes to cooling performance. The Reeven Kelveros is a beautifully designed tower heatsink CPU cooler featuring 4 direct touch copper heat pipes and a single 120mm fan. As tower heat sinks go we haven’t seen something quite this striking for a long time, but will the performance match that?
As always we are going to give this CPU cooler the Ivy Bridge heat beating and compare it against an ever expanding number of CPU coolers that we have been able to review. First lets check out the basic specifications of the Reeven Kelveros (RC-1202) CPU cooler:
