Scythe Mugen 5 CPU Cooler Review

What’s a Mugen? The term Mugen is completely new to me. There could be infinite possibilities for what it means, but you came for a CPU cooler review. While I had at least heard of Scythe, the company is a new experience for me as well. The company as a whole seems to have a positive vibe on the internet. Will the Mugen 5 live up to expectations? We’ll find out pretty soon.



Scythe announces third version of Grand Kama Cross CPU Cooler

Scythe announces third version of Grand Kama Cross CPU Cooler 16.09.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe announcing the third version of it’s “Grand Kama Cross” Top-Flow CPU cooler. New Scythe Grand Kama Cross 3 is based on the same extraordinary X-Structure concept as the predecessor, allowing especially efficient cooling of both the CPU and the surrounding components such as VGA cards, VRMs or RAM. Scythe engineers redesigned the Grand Kama Cross 3 with the goal to significantly improve the overall performance. Instead of using regular 6-millimeter copper-heatpipes, Scythe has exchanged the two copper-heatpipes in the center against two with 8-millimeter diameter. Fine-tuning the manufacturing process allowed to further increase the efficiency of the heat transfer between the copper baseplate and the copper-heatpipes. Another difference to the predecessor is that both the copper baseplate and the four copper-heatpipes have been completely nickel-plated for the Grand Kama Cross 3. The engineers have re-designed the two aluminum-fins blocks and fitted the fins with a special saw tooth tread design. The new design has lowered both the operating noise at higher fan speed ranges and the air resistance, resulting in improved cooling performance. <iframe width=”854″ height=”480″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/Cr6liq60VjY” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe> Grand Kama Cross 3 c...



Scythe releases Slip Stream 120 DB Fans with Dual Ball Bearing and long life span

  Scythe releases Slip Stream 120 DB Fans with Dual Ball Bearing and long life span 20.05.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe expands the 120 mm case fan portfolio with the announcement of the new Slip Stream 120 DB axial-fans. The new line up includes five regular models with fixed fan speed as well as one PWM-enabled model. Special highlight of the series is the Dual Ball Bearing, which has been developed in Japan. Thanks to the new bearing an intense life span increase to 350.000 hours (MTBF) has been accomplished. The successful “small hub & large fan blades” concept was initially introduced with the first Slip Stream series and is handed down to the Slip Stream 120 DB. Increased flow area and airflow could be achieved at the same fan speed, thanks to this concept. Slip Stream 120 DB lineup includes six different models, including a PWM-enabled version, which offers a wide fan speed range starting at 300 RPM and going up to 1.300 RPM. The regular models with fixed fan speed start with the 500-RPM model. This case fan operates at incredibly silent 7,2 dBA and assures steady airflow with 41,62 m³/h (24,50 CFM). A great combination between noise and performance is offered by the 800 RPM model, as it moves 68,24 m³/h (40,17 CFM) at really silent 10,7 dBA. Users requiring more performance or planning to use the Slip Stream 120 DB fans in combination with a fan controller are able to choose between the 1.200, 1.600 and 1.900 RPM model. S...



Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler

 Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler 11.05.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces the official successor of Ninja 3 Rev. B CPU Cooler. Ninja 4 comes with some major technical innovations, including the increased performance and reduction of overall weight by 180 grams. Wide range compatibility to the common sockets from AMD™ and Intel™ is assured, which is very typical for Scythe products. Ninja 4 stays true to the core concept of the Ninja series, by keeping focus on passive and semi-passive cooling capabilities of the tower-cooler. To further underline this core concept, a new fan with additional features has been introduced. The GlideStream 120 PWM fan has been equipped with a special fan controller, allowing users to switch between three different fan speed ranges. Low mode has been tuned for extremely silent operation, where PWM control range varies from 300 to 800 RPM at virtually inaudible noise levels from 4,0 to 12,5 dBA. Medium mode suits most user purposes, as it covers a wider range from 300 to 1.150 RPM and offers the best performance to silence ratio. The last mode has been implemented for users seeking more performance, since it offers the maximum fan speed range starting at 300 and ending at 1.500 RPM. Supplied GlideStream 120 PWM fan has great influence on the Ninja 4 design in addition, thanks to its grey fan blades and black fan-frame. Scythe has made modifications to the structural design of the Ninja 4, where t...



Scythe Tatsumi available as dedicated version for AMD™ and Intel™ sockets

Scythe Tatsumi available as dedicated version for AMD™ and Intel™ sockets 11.09.2014, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe ads two new versions of Tatsumi CPU cooler to its portfolio. The most significant difference to the original version of the Tatsumi is that the “Type A” version comes only with the mounting clips for AMD based sockets and “Type I” with clips for Intel sockets. Mounting process for the sockets LGA775, 1150, 1155, 1156 and 1366 is now as simple as it gets thanks to the use of Push-Pins mounting clips. Both new versions of the Tatsumi offer great cooling performance for latest AMD™ and Intel™ processors at an affordable price. The black and white package differs from the original version, indicating weather it is an AMD™ or Intel™ version, in order to avoid mix-ups. Users with AMD socket based systems need to choose the “Type A” model and “Type I” for Intel socket based systems, to make sure that all required mounting clips are in the product package. In spite of its low weight of only 416 grams (14,67 oz, Type B, incl. fan) and compact dimensions 102 x 146 x 59 mm (4,01 x 5,78 x 2,32 inch, incl. fan), great performance above the market average is provided. Tatsumi CPU Cooler achieves efficient heat dissipation thanks to the utilization of latest technology developed by Scythe over a time period of more than a decade. The large nickel-plated copper-baseplate matches the CPU heat-spreader perfectly and tr...
