Scythe Kama Cross CPU Cooler
|Scythe Kama Cross CPU Cooler|
|Testing, Installation and Conclusion|
This is the second CPU cooler that we have taken a look at from Scythe. Back in July of 2006 we took a look at their Ninja Plus. That being said, Scythe is a relatively new name in the cooling market, but has been slowing making a name for themselves thanks to their unique looking coolers that they've released.
This cooler that we are going to take a look at today is aimed at the mainstream market, and packs a pretty fair price compared to some other coolers on the market today. Let's take a look and see how it performs.
First Impressions:The box is pretty normal, but I quickly noticed that it is compatible with 3 different mounting clips (Intel LGA775, Intel 478, AMD 754/939/940/AM2), which is a nice feature to have, since there aren't a whole lot of coolers that fit pretty much everything on the market, it's pretty rare to have a cooler that can fit on the Intel Pentium 4 or Celerons, or the Intel Core 2 Duo, or the Intel Quad Cores, or the older 939 AMD X2's, of the new AM2 AMD X2's, of the older AMD 754 Athlon64's or Semprons, literally everything that has been produced in the last 5 years, which is great.
So that was the box, nothing too exciting, let's move onto the Kama Cross.
As you can see in the above pictures, this is a 6 heatpipe cooler, it has an interesting design as the heatpipes weave up to the fins.
The pictures below have the Intel LGA775 Bracket installed, as you can see its secured with 4 screws, which makes changing brackets very easy if you wish to install it on a different CPU.
