Scythe launches Kotetsu CPU cooler
The Japanese maker of high-end cooling solutions Scythe has launched a new universal CPU cooler under the name Kotetsu. The new company product is budget-oriented and does not cost much, which means more people will be able to purchase it.
The Kotetsu is also known as SCKTT-1000 and measures 130 x 58 x 160 mm for total weight of 480 grams. The cooler is made of pure aluminum fins and a copper bottom with six U-shaped 8 mm copper heat pipes.
The entire cooler is cooled by a 120 mm PWM Scythe GlideStream cooling fan that spins between 400 and 1400 rpm and produces noise between 5.3 dBa and 28 dBa; at these parameters the air pushed sits between 20.7 and 79 CFM. You can also attach an additional 140 mm cooling fan to increase efficiency. The Kotetsu is fully compatible with the Intel LGA 775/1150/1155/1156/1366 and 2011 CPU sockets and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ and FM1/FM2 CPU sockets.
As to pricing the new Scythe product will sell for USD 35. For this much money you also get some thermal paste too.
