Cooling expert Scythe today released the Kotetsu, a 120 mm tower model available for just 28,00 EUR.
Kotetsu is equipped with four six-millimeter copper heatpipes, an optimized aluminum fin-structure and an all-copper base-plate, yet puts up a weight of merely 480 grams. Heat dissipation from the fins is managed by a pre-mounted 120 mm Glide Steam axial fan, which rotates in a range between 400 and 1.400 rpm thanks to the PWM-support. Its noise level varies between 5,3 dBa to 28,0 dBA. The supplied Glide Stream axial fan is able to move from 63,49 to 165,10 cubic meter per hour, respectively 20,7 to 79,0 cubic feet per minute. Similar to other Scythe CPU Cooler models, Kotetsu can also be equipped with an addition case fan, to create a Push-Pull constellation.
The cooler measures 130 x 58 x 160 mm (W x H x D), meaning it can be used even for Mini-ATX and Micro-ATX cases.
Scythe also utilized the "H.P.M.S." mounting system to assure a fast mounting procedure.
The Kotetsu CPU Cooler supports the Intel sockets LGA1150, LGA775, LGA1155, LGA1156 and LGA1366 as well as AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1 and FM2. All required mounting clips for the screw-based mounting system, alongside one wrench and thermal grease, are bundled with the main cooler.
Scythe Kotetsu CPU Cooler (Model no. SCKTT-1000) is available today at a suggested retail price is 28,00 EUR (excl. Taxes).
