Scythe is now offering "Iori", a compact Top-Flow CPU Cooler developed for Mini- and Micro-ATX systems.
Thanks to the low-weight of the heatsink, an improved version of the Push-Pin mounting mechanism has been used, allowing fast heatsink mounting on virtually every motherboard.
In spite of its compact dimensions of 107 x 92 x 136 mm and its low heatsink weight of only 400 grams, Scythe Iori is able to cool latest CPUs from both Intel and AMD. Scythe achieved this by utilizing three 6 mm copper-heatpipes, which are crossing the heatsink twice, and the use of a custom-made PWM axial-fan. Fan speed of the supplied 100-millimeter model can be controlled by the motherboard thanks to the PWM-function between 300 and 1.800 RPM. Hence allows the fan to move between 7,3 and 43,74 cubic feet per minute (12,4 ~ 74,3m³/h) at a low noise level between 4,5 and 26,7 dBA. The custom-made axial-fan is equipped with common 92 mm mounting holes.
Being a Top-Flow Cooler, Scythe Iori is also able to use the airflow of the 100-millimeter fan to additionally cool surrounding components such as chipset, memory and voltage regulator modules.
The cooler supports the Intel sockets LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 and LGA775 as well as AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. All required mounting clips, as well as the user manual and thermal grease are supplied in the Iori package.
Scythe Iori CPU Cooler (Model no. SCIOR-1000) is available as of today, whereas the suggested retail price is 24,50 EUR (excl. Taxes).
