Scythe rolls out new low-profile CPU cooler

Kozuti CPU cooler at 40mm
Scythe has rolled out a new cooler that will surely be a star of any future HTPC systems that require at least some amount of more serious cooling power on the CPU.

The new Scythe Kozuti is only 40mm tall and weighs 250 grams. These specs don't mean that Kozuti doesn't pack a punch as it features three 6mm copper heatpipes a pretty large heatsink area and an 80mm slim fan that is actually placed below the heatsink in order to keep the height as low as possible. It supports Intel's LGA 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD's AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ socket CPUs.

The 80mm fan spins between 800 and 3300RPM and makes between 8.2 and 32.5 dBA of noise. Overall the cooler looks quite interesting and it has a suggested price tag of €22.90, which sounds like quite a good deal.

Looks like installing that thing would be a bit of a challenge. I have one of their older model low profile coolers and it was manageable, but just barely. Hopefully they have changed the mounting so that it secures from the backside of the motherboard.

It gets screwed from the the back of the mainboard and doesn't need a backplate.
Not the most elegant...
