Scythe Unveils Grand Kama Cross 2 CPU Cooler

By - Source: techpowerup | B 9 comments

The recently announced Scythe Grand Kama Cross 2 CPU Cooler features a unique angled fin design.

Based on the design structure of its predecessor, the Grand Kama Cross 2 has slightly improved placement of the fin stacks for better fan flow, and as a result, better thermal dissipation. Scythe claims that with the top-flow “X Structure” design, the heatsink is even capable of cooling areas of the motherboard surrounding the CPU. The Grand Kama Cross 2 features four 6mm heat pipes which intertwine each other and lead down to a nickel-plated copper base.

The new Grand Kama Cross 2 also features the new Hyper-Precision Mounting System (HPMS), which is a new and improved retention system aimed at making installation much easier. If you're worried if the new Intel Haswell chips will support this new technology, don't be, because they do!

The cooler is also equipped with a single, but powerful 140 mm Scythe Falcon fan which is capable of pushing 97.18 CFM.

The Grand Kama Cross 2 is expected to be available late April, and is priced at approximately $50.

    I like my Noctua down-draft cooler, keeps my mobo nice and frosty, this looks like it would offer pretty similar performance, and is pretty cool looking imo.

    I sure hope it is easier to install. I have a Mugen 2 and that thing was a royal pain...it was bad enough that the day I need to take it off is the day it get replaced.

    Hmm, that looks like a lot of weight so far from the base of the cooler... Law of the lever would like to have a word with you, Scythe.

    Blowing the hot air back to the motherboard is never a good idea. Even though the design is unique, it is not piratical.

    Now THAT'S a cooler that should keep power circuitry and RAM nice and cool while chilling the CPU.

    At $50, I'm hoping it will give somewhat large down-draft coolers like the Phanteks PH-DC14CS and Noctua NH-C14 a serious run for the money. (Two coolers which typically sell in the $75-$90 range, depending upon the source.)
