Scythe launches new Shuriken cooler
Just 58mm high and perfect for HTPCs
Scythe has launched a scaled up version of its thin Shuriken CPU cooler, for users who need a bit more grunt in their thin desktop systems or HTPCs. The new BIH Shuriken comes with a 120mm fan versus the 100mm unit on the old model, but it's still incredibly compact. It is just 58mm high and weighs 405g.
Its 120mm Slip Stream fan runs from 650 to 1600RPM, and generates 15.7 to 38CFM of airflow. Depending on the RPM, the noise level varies from just 12.91dBA to 28.89dBA. You can also use 120mm fans from other vendors, as long as you find a slim one, to keep the height down.
The cooler supports Intel Socket 478/LGA775/LGA1366 and AMD Socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+/AM3, and it should sell for around $35. We tested the old, 100mm version last year, and you can find the review here.
The new Shuriken is already on sale and available for under €21,-.
