Scythe Rolls Out Lori CPU Cooler

Scythe has initiated the sale of its Lori mid-range CPU cooler.

The cooler is built using a medium sized, downward facing aluminum fin stack, to which heat is fed through three copper heat pipes. On top of the unit users will find a 100 mm fan that can spin up to 1800 RPM, but keep the noise level below 26.7 dBA.

The cooler will be compatible with pretty much any modern-day CPU socket you throw it at, including AMD's AM3+, FM2, as well as Intel's LGA1150 and LGA2011 sockets. It'll weigh only 400 grams.

The cooler has an MSRP of $35 and should either already be in stores or will be arriving soon.

    Unsure why this is news?? Looks like a typical CPU cooler.

    They should test this out by putting it under a lorry, to see if it lives up to its name. :p

    Sounds like a badass cooler to me. Below 26 dba, moving that air at 1800 rpm and it's 35$? You can't beat that.

    Practically all PC hardware could be described as "typical" after the first few new devices that introduce a new design idea.

    Most "typical" folded-over HSFs have all their pipes coming through one single side while this one has two pipes on one side and three on the other going through the same fin stack instead of each having their own smaller stack, which actually is not that common.

    I think it might be news because it does not resemble a pint-sized semi truck.

    Scythe coolers are generally very good for the money. I just wonder why they called it Lori? Amy and Christy didn't want the job? :P

    I don't understand why they chose not to attach the heatsink fins directly to the block that makes contact with the CPU. By putting more distance between the fins and the block with long heatpipes, the heat will have farther to travel than it would if they had simply attached the fins directly to the block. They could still have used heatpipes with this design, too... it just doesn't make sense. Maybe it's supposed to have more visual appeal this way?
