Scythe Kozuti low profile cooler tested - 2 Overview

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review: Small, but powerful 


Overview:



Kozuti_box_normal

The base is pure copper but Scythe decided to nickel-plate it, to avoid discoloration due to oxidation. Of course, it has a mirror finish and yes, the reflection on it is our camera.
 
Kozuti_cooler_bottom_normal

 The cooler consists of three 6mm heatpipes.

As you can see the heatpipes are tightly "wrapped" around the fan, of course they don't touch.

Kozuti_cooler_side_normal

 

The aluminium fans are quite thin and as usual, build quality of Scythe's coolers is excellent.

Kozuti_cooler_top_normal

The box contains all parts to fit on AM2/AM3 and Intel 775/115x/1366 sockets.

To keep the space usage of the cooler low, you have to remove the backplate of the AMD cooler mounts. To mount the cooler, you'll need to use four screws.

 Finally the Slip Stream 8cm fan, rated at 800 (±30%) to 3300rpm (±10%). Our fan ran from 1000 to 3550rpm.

If your case is taller you may also mount a 10cm slim fan on top of the cooler, which would reduce noise when the 8cm starts spinning like a little chopper. Our fan is not available anymore, but the Scythe Jyu Slim SY1012SL12L with up to 1000rpm or the SY1012SL12M up to 2000rpm will do just fine.

That's quite useless with standard AMD alu-coolers as you should know. There is no need to state the obvious.
