Reeven Unveils a Trio of Low-profile CPU Coolers

Reeven showed off a trio of low-profile top-flow CPU coolers, some meant to simply replace your stock cooling, others to lower noise, and increase OC headroom. The lineup begins with the Steropes (RC-1206). This 60 mm tall cooler (including fan), features a large (120 x 120 mm size) aluminium fin-stack, which is just tall enough to stay above key motherboard components on a mini-ITX board, while still leaving room for standard height memory modules, and the PCI-Express slot. The cooler is ventilated by a 12 mm-thick 120 mm fan.

Next up, is the Brontes (RC-1001). This cooler is even shorter than the Steropes at just 59 mm, but has lower clearance below the fin-stack, and uses a 12 mm-thick 100 mm fan. The cooler itself measures 105 mm x 59 mm x 114 mm. Lastly, there's the Vanxie (RC-0801). This 33 mm tall cooler is just about the size of a reference Intel heatsink; and has almost no clearance below the fin-stack. It's ventilated by a 10.8 mm-thick 80 mm spinner; and measures 80 mm x 33 mm x 93 mm. All three coolers support Intel LGA115x and AMD AM1, AM3+, and FM2+ socket types (under 100W TDP).

+1 . I was thinking the same thing. I wish the heatpipes on the 3rd weren't sticking so much. I've seen this happen with Silverstone Argon AR5. Where although it looks small enough, the heatpipes lead to incompatibility sometimes. I have to see it installed to be fair.

The 2nd one is Brontec. It doesn't overhang the RAM slots in any physical way. Only the first picture the cooler is over the RAM sticks.

It's similar to TITAN NC25TZ, installed.

No, I mean that these specific models have been out since last year at least.
