First Look

The packaging is Reeven standard. On the front you have an image of the cooler, its name, and a compatibility listing. Right side you have a detailed size graph and a Caution list warning you what not to do with the cooler. The back is where you’d the specs in 7 different languages.

Reeven Steropes Accessories

As Accessories, Reeven provides one single fan already attached to the radiator, mounting kits for Intel LGA775 / 1150/1155/1156/1366 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+ kits, and lastly a small bag of thermal paste.

Reeven Steropes Radiator

Steropes features a large aluminum heatsink, with 74 fins with a 2mm distance between them (the exception being the last two which are only 1mm apart).

Reeven Steropes Heatpipes

Five heat-pipes transfer the heat to the very top, where a 120mmx12mm PWM fan with 15-blades, rated at 0.39 amps, and capable of moving up to 45.47 CFM or air is waiting. The rated speed is between 500 and 2000 RPM with a noise-level of 9.32 - 33.67dBA. The power cable is sheathed in a thick, plastic cover.

Lastly, the five heat-pipes run into a nickel-plated copper base, which also features a secondary smaller heat-sink on top, increasing the surface area and theoretically improving cooling performance. The base is smooth, flat, and is almost mirror sheen polished.
