If you haven't heard of Reeven, that's because they are a relatively new company. OCC takes a look at the RCCT-0901SP direct-touch heatpipe cooler - http://www.overclock...ws/reeven_rcct/

Yea, I was gonna say it does look like a Xigmatek, in fact I'm pretty sure it is.

They've lent their design out before as well, to OCZ on their Vendetta I believe...

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Good review!

I was thinking about getting a new cooler because I really don't like the way the 939 mounting on the Tuniq Tower works, but I'm not sure about how this "direct touch" idea would work on a naked Opteron 148. The exposed core on those chips is pretty small and I'm curious how well this would work without a unified contact patch on the cooler and with such a small surface on the chip core.

The price is certainly right though. I always like seeing new up-and-coming companies like this because it means they don't have the name recognition to charge big bucks which ends up translating to awesome deals for us and a good name for them if their product works well.

Nice review and I'm glad to see the inclusion of the installed picture just to see how big it looks in a case.

Heatsinks are a tricky thing, reason being, the fan. Some heatsinks are ignored, but if they had a better fan they would work much better. For example the ThermalRight Ultra 120 was tested using 1 and 2 Ultra Kazes, most other heatsinks come with fans that have under half the airflow.
