Scythe Introduces Kotetsu CPU Cooler

Scythe has announced a new CPU cooler, the Kotetsu. The Kotetsu is a tower-style CPU cooler aimed at mid-range applications. The CPU cooler features an aluminum fin stack from which four individual heat pipes emerge. The heat pipes are 8 mm thick and are  made of copper. The aluminum fin stack has fins with varying patterns, the idea of which is to increase turbulence within the stack in order to increase heat transfer.

The cooler features a 120 mm PWM controlled fan, which can rotate at speeds between 400 and 1400 RPM. It'll push up to 79 CFM, and keeps the noise level below a maximum of 28 dBA. The cooler fits on most modern CPU sockets, including AMD's FM2+ and AM3+, as well as Intel's LGA 1150 and LGA 2011 sockets.

Scythe has priced the cooler at about $35.

    I hope the added turbulence doesn't mean it will be noisy, although 400rpm is awfully low.

    Looks the same as every single tower cooler on the market. I wonder if there is any real world difference between this and my Cooler Master?

    Is it any better than an old TRUE, that's what I'd like to know.

    The Gaia already beats the CM (especially on bang/buck), so it will be interesting to see what the street price on this one is.
