Reeven Arcziel 12 CPU Cooler Pictured

Reeven unveiled the Arcziel 12 CPU cooler. Classified in the large category, the Arcziel 12 is a top-flow air-cooler that uses an aluminum fin stack arranged along the plane of the motherboard, to which heat is conveyed by six 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make indirect contact with the CPU over a nickel-plated copper base that's polished to a mirror-finish. The six heat pipes pass through the aluminum fin stack at two points, to even heat distribution. The heatsink is then ventilated by a 120 mm PWM fan that spins at 500 to 1900 RPM, with noise-output of up to 35 dBA. Measuring 140.5 x 131 x 126 mm, the cooler weighs about 557 g. It supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011, LGA115x, AM3+, and FM2. It is slated for November 21.

Those are some weird shaped heatpipes.

Looks solidly built. No complaints.

It has a similar heatpipe setup as Thermalright AXP-140...

Top flow and tower cooler combined? Curious about the cooling efficiency.

I'd stick another 80 or 60mm fan below the cooler (between heatpipes) in a push-pull config.

hard to fit one on unless you use plastic cable ties

+1 I was thinking the same thing.

Would look good in this... well if it can fit in it anyway.



My friend has one... its a decent case. A similar sized tower type cooler of the same size has some clearance issues with the case and its side fan... we just took off the big fan and used some tin snips on the large side grill in a couple spots... just the tips of the heatpipes were in the way so only a little slot was needed. anyways... I think this cooler would fit without having to do that, maybe still having to take off the side fan.

The advantage i can see from this sort of config is the possibility of the fan drawing heat from the components surrounding the cpu as well?
As a previous poster mentioned, pity it doesn't have a fan underneath too.

As it seems it does, like my Triton 75 is doing. It is pushing though, so that means that the exhaust case fan(s) must output a bit more air to avaoid turbulence in the areas you mentioned (like above the CPU power related stuff on the mobo).

Top-flows CPU coolers are very efficient if you have a bottom mount PSU (far from the CPU), and wanna go for a nearly silent setup, because they are gently blowing fresh air to the rest of the motherboard and onto the RAMs as well, and that's a must on hot summer days.
I still have a Big-Typhoon in one of my systems, and I just replaced its fan with a silent 800RPM hydro-dynamic bearing fan, which I run on 0(5)-9V depending on the load. Combined with a silent PSU, a similar almost-passive setup on the GPU, and a Quiet-Drive from Scythe means you simply can't hear a thing from the case, or perhaps only a very little if everything is on full load and you put your ear next to it.

The Cooler needs to be Taller as of the Pipes, Ram slots are blocked
