Scythe Rolls Out Grand Kama Cross 2 CPU Cooler

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 11 comments

Scythe is rolling out its new Grand Kama Cross 2 CPU cooler.

Scythe has announced a new CPU cooler, the Grand Kama Cross 2. This cooler is the successor to the original Scythe Grand Kama Cross. The cooler features a unique 'X-Stucture' design, which supposedly has higher compatibility with various motherboards and PC cases.

The unit is cooled by a large 140 mm fan that is PWM controlled. Its speeds can range from 500 RPM to 1300 RPM. At these speeds it provides noise levels from 13 dBA to 30.7 dBA, and airflow levels from 37.4 CFM to 97.2 CFM, respectively. The fan is also mounted to the heat sink using rubber anti-vibration pads.

The Grand Kama Cross 2 is also compatible with all modern CPU sockets, including AMD's AM3+ and FM2, as well as Intel's new LGA1150 socket and the LGA2011 socket. In its entirety, the cooler weighs 760 grams and measures 175.2 x 140 x 140 mm.

Included with the cooler is the cooler itself, the fan, thermal interface material, a backplate, a multilingual manual, and finally, a mini wrench.

The cooler is already available through select retail channels and carries an MSRP of €30.50 (excluding taxes), which translates to roughly $40.

    Scythe makes amazing coolers for HTPC's. When you are watching a movie, you want no sound, and Scythe coolers are VERY quite, Just don't plan on doing any OC'ing if you want the noise down.

    Its' pretty cheap for the amount of cooling it promises to offer, which is good.

    Not sure it'd be ideal for most purpose designed htpc cases - this cooler is massive. Good looking spec though.

    i love how these look but these prove to be lousy at cooling. there was some big HSF shootout on here a few years back and it pretty well proved that just about ANY tower cooler and a few OEM-style sinks are able to out-perform these V-style coolers.
