Scythe releases the Kabuto 3 CPU cooler
The Japanese cooler designed Scythe has announced the expected Kabuto 3 CPU cooler – a device we reported on two months ago. The cooler features top flow technology and a revamped heatsink design that now incorporates a hybrid heatpipe system. The system consists of two 6 mm and three 8 mm high-quality copper heatpipes and has been designed in such a way so it does not interfere with large memory modules.
The Kabuto 3 features a Scythe Glide Stream 120 mm cooling fan with the model number of SY1225HB12M-CIP. The Glide Stream fan series is equipped with a redesigned small center hub as well as fan blades. This allows the reduction of air resistance and therefore lower operating noise. The PWM-enabled 120 mm fan operates in the fan speed range from 300 to 1400 rpm, offering sufficient airflow from 21.96 to 113.34 m³/h (12.93 – 79.0 CFM) at noise levels from 4 dB to maximum 28.0 dB.
The new Scythe CPU cooler is compatible with the Intel Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as the AMD Sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. As to pricing it sells now for EUR 38 with no VAT included.
