Scythe's new cooling called Kotetsu comes to provide a market response that seeks the highest ratio among capacity Cooling To price. We checked
The processor cooling market today is quite crowded and includes dozens of companies and hundreds of products. One of the most popular categories in the curling market is the category of 100 to NISNUMX. This category is primarily intended for those who want ability Cooling
As good as possible while maintaining a sane budget. Quite a few of them use cooling under processor speed, which makes performance extremely important, and the noise does not matter.
In this review, I will present you with a new solution Scythe Which meets this requirement -Kotetsu.
Scythe Kotetsu - the next step
The packaging of theKotetsu Simple and contains the product image along with supported brackets and packaging contents.

A closer look
he is Cooling
It is a single tower built in the traditional way in which copper pipes are arranged in a shape U
With the middle of the pipes touching the bottom of the cooler and each side going to another part of the tower. The pipes are accompanied by many aluminum fans. The height of Cooling
It is 16 inches and is suitable for a large variety of computer enclosures so that in terms of compatibility should not be a problem even with the cheapest ones.
The cooling bottom that comes into contact with the processor is made of copper and has a nickel coating. To the same tube are connected to copper pipes. There are four tubes and each carries a diameter of 6 millimeters.
The aluminum fans attached to the copper pipes come in a configuration that I'm not used to seeing fromScythe. Usually toScythe The captions that are carried by many fans are dense and uniformly shaped. Here the company took freedom and designed a different fan pattern. The spacing between the fans increases significantly and each third fan contains a bridge between the two sides of the tower so that its center allows easy passage of air.
The reason for opening the center of the tower is simple. The cooling pipes are located at the edges of the tower and are relatively far from its center. The opening of the center allows the air to move easily and thus reduce the noise intensity due to lower resistance.
At the top she decided Scythe Make another design change and add a black aluminum fan with the company logo. This is just aesthetics because there are users who do not like to see the silver shining through the window of the case.
A reverse look at the bottom of the refrigerator shows the track used for docking equipment. The bumps in the rails are also used to remove heat from the bottom of the refrigerator.
The fan that comes with theKotetsu Is a brand new model of Scythe Inspired by the new niche companies (like Be Quiet! and-NANOXIA) Aimed at bringing the highest ratio between air and noise. The fan model is Glide Stream 120 PWM.
Fan fans are acoustically designed to gently handle the air, preventing noise. The fan motor uses a roller bearing (Sleeve bearing) And rated for up to 30,000 hours or 3.5 years.
