Page 4 - Conclusion
After several days of having the Reeven Okeanos RC-1402 in my computer, I found myself really enjoy using this product. The dual fans design provides excellent CPU cooling performance. Because the heatsink cooling performance is so good, both fans are operated at very low RPMs in majority of the time, therefore the noise level of is kept low. Previously, when I had a single fan CPU cooler on my motherboard, I knew exactly when my computer was at high CPU workloads. It was because I could always hear the CPU fan started to speed up. However, after I installed the Okeanos RC-1402 in my computer, I found the noise level was kept consistently low. Along with the outstanding CPU cooling performance and the low noise level, the other thing I enjoyed with this product is the appearance. I like the way the Okeanos RC-1402 looks. It has a stylish design, and more importantly, the size is big enough to take up the empty space in my computer case. Well, not everybody wants their computer case to be packed up with stuff, but I really enjoy the view of a big CPU cooler in the case. I cannot wait to put three 140mm fans on the Okeanos RC-1402. The one thing I think that can improve this product is the wire clips. I would prefer to have the wire clips with tabs on them, so the fan installation experience can be improved. At press time, the Okeanos RC-1402 has a $77 USD price tag, which is not cheap, but reasonable for what you get. If you need an air-cooled CPU cooler with excellent performance and do not mind having a chunky combination of fans and a heatsink in your case, the Reeven Okeanos RC-1402 is highly recommended.
