Performance: 32 out of 40
There are two ways at looking the Reeven Justice’s performance: potential and out of the box. Thanks to a sub-optimal fan the stock performance is nothing to write home about. It is decent, but nothing special. However, if you yank the ColdWing 12 fan and use a better one the end result is indeed a darn good cooling solution. One that can hold its own against all comers. As such the potential performance is there… it just requires some TLC to get it.
Ease of Use: 16 out of 20
Even though it does use an older generation of mounting equipment it is not all that difficult to install. Better still, thanks to some rather ingenious design tweaks it may be a moderately sized cooling solution but it provides almost as few incompatibility issues as the typical ‘slim’ style coolers. That certainly is impressive.
Build Quality: 14 out of 20
The Reeven Justice CPU cooling solution is a good design with a ton of potential performance. Sadly the build quality of the included fan is anything but. As such the overall build quality does suffer.
Value: 12 out 20
The Reeven Justice is a highly capable cooling solution. Just one that requires spending a bit more time and money to get it. As such we would be hesitant at spending its MSRP for it but, when found for the right price it can indeed perform extremely well.
Final Score: 74 out 100
While it may not have optimal out of the box performance, thanks to its stock fan, the Reeven Justice is actually a very good cooling solution. Just one that requires a bit of TLC in order to get it to perform up to its potential. Thankfully, its price is not all that egregious and replacing the stock fan (and fan mounts) is not a massive undertaking. As such it certainly will not be right for everyone but if found at the right price can indeed provide years’ worth of cooling across multiple system upgrades.
