The Japan ses company has used the latest technologies such as the M.A.P.S fin structure and H.P.M.S. mounting system for the new Tatsumi to raise the entry-level bar. Tatsumi CPU Cooler is compatible with the latest AMD and Intel processors and offers a of high built-quality and performance for a reasonable price.
Scythe says that in spite of the cooler's low weight of only 450 grams (15.87 oz, incl. fan) and compact dimensions 102 x 146 x 83 mm (4.02 x 5.75 x 3.27 inch, incl. fan), it performs above the market average.
It uses a large nickel-plated copper-baseplate to transfer the heat to the three U-shaped 6 mm copper heatpipes. Heat is being passed on to the aluminum fin structure on top, where a 92 mm case fan provides airflow. Attached Glide Stream 92 mm fan rotates in a range between 300 and 2.500 RPM thanks to PWM control and moves between 11,4 and 94,3 cubic meter per hour (6,70 to 55,55 CFM) at 7,2 to 31,07 dBA.
"Hyper Precision Mounting System" (H.P.M.S.) was first introduced with the release of the Mugen 4. Scythe passed this convenient mounting mechanism on to the Tatsumi. Thanks to the backplate-based mounting system it is no longer necessary to remove the whole motherboard in order to mount or dismount the CPU cooler. Socket compatibility list benefits from this amazing mounting system as well, as it provides compatibility with the latest Intel motherboard sockets, such as the LGA775, LGA 1150, LGA 1155, LGA 1156, LGA 1366 and LGA 2011 as well as AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1 and FM2.
Scythe Tatsumi (model no. SCMGD-1000) is available today at a suggested MSRP is 21,60 EUR (excl. taxes).
