The Katana 2 is now unveiled in a further developed version. The Japanese specialist cooling Scythe announced the Katana 3 CPU cooler.
Katana is named by the Japanese sword, Katana, which is produced in a complicated manufacturing process which has been improved over the centuries. Characteristic of the Japanese katana compared to European sword types is its slightly curved shape, which also can be found in the Scythe Katana CPU Cooler series.
So called Slant Pipe Structure (S.P.S.) of the Katana 3 CPU cooler enables the supplied 92 mm PWM fan not only to remove the heat from the CPU cooler but to also to keep cool sensitive components on the motherboard.
Enlarged surface of the Base Plate allows dissipating additional heat, which is increasing the overall performance of the cooler.
The Scythe Katana 3 CPU cooler is now available for an MSRP of $32.00 excluding TAX / €16,75 excluding VAT.
