Speeze EE782B3 CopperReef

Speeze EE782B3 CopperReef :
Supplied by: Speeze

When I heard Inverted Spider-Fan, I was expecting something out of the ordinary. After opening the box, my expectations came true. This cooler certainly does not have the everyday fan.

Specifications CopperReef :

  • AMD: Athlon64/64+ Socket754/940/939

    Fan included: 80x80x25mm
    Fan Speed: 2700 RPM +/-10%
    Fan Noise Level: 22.0 dBA
    Air Flow: 34.46 CFM at 2,700 RPM

    For more detailed specifications I would like to direct you to the manufacturers' site.

    Besides the general information, this cooling solution features: "Easy install and remove system: Copper base: Stamped fin technology: Inverted Spider-Fan: Temperature controlled & Auto restart"

    In the Box :

    All you need and nothing more, a manual, thermal paste, the heatsink fan itself and an original A64 retention bracket. (In case you lost or destroyed yours)

    Construction :

    The CopperReef is Speezes' performance model. The copper base with stamping fin is nicely finished, and no sharp edges could be found.

    Installation :

    Put it on the CPU, pull down the clips and push the leaver until it "clicks". That's all.
    A very simple and fast installation, exactly the same as using the retail boxed cooler.
