Scythe launches Musashi VGA cooler

Two heatpipes and a couple of big fans

Scythe has finally announced its first graphics card cooler, the SCVMS-1000 Musashi. We had a chance to see this behemoth back in March during this year's CeBIT show, but back then Scythe showed us the prototype which was doing a great job cooling the HD 3870 and HD 3850 cards. It supports the latest ATI HD 4800 series and Nvidia's 9800 series cards.

Measuring 104x250x35mm (WxDxH) and weighing 375 grams, this cooler is everything but small and light, as it takes up the entire PCB of any high-end card. The large heatsink which is connected to the core by two heatpipes is cooled by a pair of rather large 100mm Kaze Jyu Slim fans. Users can independently control each fan speed depending on the need for silence or performance.

The new Musashi VGA cooler is compatible with ATI's 9***, X***, X1300, X1600, X1650, X1800, X1900, X1950, HD2600, HD2900XT, HD3650, HD3850, HD3870, HD4850, HD4870, except the Radeon 9550/9600 cards, and Nvidia's GeForce FX5900, 6600, 6800, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 8500, 8600, 8800GT, 8800GTS, 9600, 9800GT, 9800GTX, 9800GTX+, except the AGP version of the Geforce 6600.

The new Musashi VGA cooler should be available soon with the suggested price set at US $49.80 and €29.95 without our dear friend, VAT.
