Scythe has built a new entry-level CPU cooler.
Scythe has revealed a new CPU cooler: the Tatsumi 1000B. This is a simple entry-level CPU cooler that should be widely compatible.
The cooler is built using an aluminum fin stack to which heat is fed through three 6 mm thick copper heat pipes. Heat gets transferred to the heat pipes through the use of a nickel-plated copper base.
The fan on the unit is a 92 mm fan which can rotate at speeds of up to 2500 RPM, though because it is PWM controlled will be able to rotate at speeds as low as about 300 RPM for when the system is doing some extra-heavy nothing. At full speed the fan will push up to 55.55 CFM of air while making about 31 dBA of noise.
Pricing for the unit is set at 3280 Yen (ex. VAT), which translates to about $32 USD. Shipping starts on May 2 with no word on U.S. availability just yet.
