Scythe Kozuti CPU cooler, 40 mm tall incl fan

Post by Mats » Fri Apr 08, 2011 9:05 am

New cooler, only 110 X 103 X 40 mm, it wouldn't surprise if we'll see a review here. :wink:

Nice... but it uses a non-standard 12mm thick PWM 80mm fan, operating at 800 to 3300 rpm. If you don't like the fan, you are still stuck with it.

With the fan underneath, the fins can be positioned closer to a PSU or other form of air blockage while still giving the fan blades room to breath in order to do their job. That is good. With the fan being so small it is less likely to run into problems where it wants to take up space already being used by memory or other motherboard components.

I think it's hard to find a better cooler with that total height, but that's just a guess of course.

Looks very promising (although at first sight it would make more sense to reverse the fan so hot air gets exhausted from the chassis).

This may be a perfect fit for the karma tf5 chassis I hope to buy (58mm tall).

If anyone has this cooler I am very interested in your results!!

I just ordered it but I don't have an immediate use for it. I think I am saving it for Ivy Bridge :)

I got it from platinummicro.com
The are selling it for $29.99 with free shipping

I just went right now and looked and they just increased the price to $31.99 (but it still have free shipping and least right now)

Interesting. FrozenCPU.com and Heatsink Factory are selling them for 40.99 and 40.95 respectively.

The SPCR crowd should do a run on the store. Clean them out at this price. Then Mike should call them up and sell them an SPCR sponsorship. :)

I agree, I'd be interested if someone has tried reversing the fan. That would be great for low-profile Mini-ITX cases
