"Reeven has made the most underwhelming entrance to the competitive world of aftermarket CPU coolers we've ever seen. "

As sad as their performance turned out, thanks for the review. If I haven't mentioned it earlier, I really like the VRM temperature comparison table.

Oh well epic fail but they can't always be winners!
Think I'll stick to the cooler master ones and swap out the fans..they're decent performance and well priced.

Seems that the prices on the 1st page have been swapped.

I am not great with languages but I guess that "Reeven" translates as "Budget", "crap", "overpriced" or something similar.

I have read the reviews of 3 "Reeven" CPU coolers on SPCR, and they have all been rubbish, I appreciate that they are a new company and are trying to make an impact, but from what I have seen they are trying to sell their products on design and looks rather than performance and noise - at which they do poorly.

This review just confirms to everyone to stay away from reeven until further notice.

They need to read these reviews, walk away and improve on them. From their products so far, i'm not sure if they are serious enough to make worthwhile products.

Typo on last page. "thjat". Surely you have a spellchecker?
