The dual heatsink and fan design provide extreme performance of the dual tower CPU.
We tested the Reeven Okeanos cooling performance at 3.7GHz and 4.2GHz and we can say that the Okeanos performed great:
Running the CPU at 3.7GHz idle the temperature sat at around 29 degrees. Overclocking the CPU to 4.2GHz idle the Reeven Okeanos kept the temp at a steady 31 degrees
Adding some load to the CPU saw the Okeanos perform at a respectable 53 degrees at 3.7GHz and 67 degrees at 4.2GHz.
In regards to noise the cooler is barely audible when under load, in fact the case fans produced more noise.
How to Use
When it comes to the installation of the Okeanos Dual Tower CPU Cooler, you should first prepare the back-plate before setting it in place. Next would be the white spacers that are set onto the cooler’s back-plate screws before setting the mounting bracket into its proper position, and with the use of the four included nuts, tighten these well to secure these in place.
This time, apply an adequate amount of thermal paste before setting the cooler in place using the crossbar; the bolt of the crossbar is also necessary for setting the cooler in place. This time, attach the fans to the Okeanos cooler using the fan clips before plugging these into CPU fan headers of the motherboard. If you wish to lessen the noise of the cooler, you can make use of the included SSA’s and then you’re all set.
