Reeven announced the Steropes RC-1206 low-profile CPU cooler. Measuring 125 mm x 129 mm x 60 mm (WxDxH), it weighs about 470 g. Its design includes a chunky copper+aluminium base that doubles up as a heatsink, from which five nickel-plated copper heat pipes pass through. The heat pipes draw heat away from the base, and to an aluminium fin stack that's arranged along the plane of the motherboard, which is then ventilated by a 12 mm-thick 120 mm fan that spins between 500 and 2,000 RPM, pushing between 12.13 and 45.47 CFM of air, with noise output proportionately ranging between 9.32 and 33.67 dBA. The fan supports draws power from a 4-pin PWM fan header. The cooler supports most modern CPU socket types, including Intel LGA115x, AMD AM3+, and FM2+. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability information.
