Scythe Fuma SCFM-1000 Heatsink Scythe Fuma SCFM-1000 Heatsink
The 920gram Scythe Fuma heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a pair of aluminum fin stacks that measure 104x130x37mm (HxWxD) in size. The heatpipes are liberally soldered to a chunky nickel plated copper base plate, this plate helps to more evenly conduct heat away from hot-spot ridden multi-core CPUs.

Scythe Ninja 4 SCNH-4000 Heatsink Review Scythe Ninja 4 SCNH-4000 Heatsink Review
While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as "silent" coolers, the company has typically produced coolers which meet the quiet esthetic.

Scythe Mugen Max SCMGD-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Mugen Max SCMGD-1000 Heatsink Review
Scythe's Mugen Max heatsink weighs 870grams and stands 166mm tall. The heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to a 2mm thick nickel plated copper base plate. The heatpipes are swaged into a 113x145x84mm aluminum fin stack which is roughly broken up into four nearly-separate cooling towers.

Scythe Ashura SCASR-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Ashura SCASR-1000 Heatsink Review
On the review bench today we have Scythe's Ashura heatsink; this is a fairly standard tower cooler equipped with a 140mm fan. The Ashura cooler stands 162mm tall, making it suitable for full tower cases where AIO liquid coolers are often too bulky.

Scythe Ashura Shadow Heatsink Review Scythe Ashura Shadow Heatsink Review
The Scythe Ashura Shadow is a dark nickel plated version of the vanilla Ashura heatsink Scythe also has on the market. Structurally, there's no difference between the two coolers, aside from the cosmetic metal coating. The Ashura Shadow heatsink stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 145x89mm so it should fit most motherboards without memory slot interference.

Scythe Mugen 4 Heatsink Review Scythe Mugen 4 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Mugen 4 heatsink weighs 625grams and stands 157mm tall. The heatsink is built around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and has a footprint of 130x112mm. A 120mm PWM fan ships with the Mugen 4 heatsink, it rotates at 1400-600RPM and produces upwards of 41.9d dBA.

Scythe Kozuti SCKZT-1000 1.5U Low Profile Heatsink Review Scythe Kozuti SCKZT-1000 1.5U Low Profile Heatsink Review
The Scythe Kozuti SCKZT-1000 is a really compact low profile heatsink that conforms to the 1.5U standard and measures just 40mm from tip to toe! That's not a lot of space in which to cram a heatsink capable of handling 150W heat loads... but Scythe manage it.

Scythe SCRT-1000 Rasetsu Heatsink Review Scythe SCRT-1000 Rasetsu Heatsink Review
Broad processor support, however, is not what makes the Scythe Rasetsu heatsink stand out.... instead it's a mixture of acute and obtuse isosceles triangular voids cut into the leading and trailing edges of the heatsinks aluminum fins.

Scythe Grand Kama Cross SCKC-2000 Heatsink Review Scythe Grand Kama Cross SCKC-2000 Heatsink Review
In this review Frostytech is testing Scythe's Grand Kama Cross heatsink, the supped-up successor to the Kama Cross. This time around Scythe have sized it up by selecting a 140mm PWM fan.

Scythe Zipang 2 SCZP-2000 Heatsink Review Scythe Zipang 2 SCZP-2000 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Zipang 2 heatsink actually fulfills most of these criteria, essentially silently, thanks to a clever combination of a slow-speed 140mm diameter fan and large cooling surface area. It's not the coolest heatsink Frostytech has ever tested, but it did keep noise levels under 40dB and temperatures to a little over 25C ambient in our 150W synthetic test scenario.

Scythe Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Big Shuriken is actually a really small heatsink, well not so much tiny as low profile. From the CPU to the top of the fan, the Big Shuriken measures a scant 57mm tall. That's not a whole lot of space to cram in a heatsink, but somehow Scythe have packed in four 6mm diameter heatpipes, 60 or 70 razor thin aluminum fins and a 120mm fan.

Model No.: Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000

Scythe Kama Angle Heatsink Review Scythe Kama Angle Heatsink Review
Traditional parallel fin-to-fan relationships are thrown out the window and what we're left with is a chevron-shaped aluminum fin tower with the fan set at 45 degrees to the leading edge.

Scythe Orochi SCORC-1000 Low Noise Heatsink Review Scythe Orochi SCORC-1000 Low Noise Heatsink Review
Scythe made the Orochi heatsink large for a reason, so that it can be paired with a slowly rotating ultra quiet fan to gently move air through the massive heatsinks' fins.

Scythe Zipang SCZP-1000 Ultra Low Noise Heatsink Review Scythe Zipang SCZP-1000 Ultra Low Noise Heatsink Review
If you need a silent heatsink, and I do mean silent, the Scythe Zipang is the next best thing to a passive block of aluminum (the only truely silent option).

Scythe Shuriken SCSK-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Shuriken SCSK-1000 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Shuriken (SCSK-1000) heatsink features copper heatpipes, high density stacked aluminum fins, a copper base and a low profile 12mm thick 100mm Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) fan. All that in a package that is 65mm tall.

Scythe Andy Samurai Master Heatsink Review Scythe Andy Samurai Master Heatsink Review
Design wise, the Andy Samurai Master heatsink weighs in at 685grams and comes packing no less than six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 120mm 1200RPM fan.

Scythe Infinity SCINF-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Infinity SCINF-1000 Heatsink Review
At least we would assume all that is accurate after testing the Scythe Infinity heatsink... The Infinity is a big heatsink for sure; it stands 155mm tall, 125mm wide and about 114mm deep with its 120mm 1200RPM fan. The scale tips at 960 grams, or just short of a kilogram.

Scythe Mugen SCINF-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Mugen SCINF-1000 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Mugen and Infinity heatsinks are identical, except for a slightly more powerful fan on the former. The Scythe Mugen is no different, it just runs a little cooler still, and louder.

Scythe Ninja Mini SCMNJ-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Ninja Mini SCMNJ-1000 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Ninja Mini SCMNJ-1000 is a compact lower-noise heatsink ideally suited to compact PC chassis. These diminutive PCs have until now not had much in the way to choose from for reduced noise CPU cooling.

Scythe Mine Rev.B SCMN-1100 Heatsink Review Scythe Mine Rev.B SCMN-1100 Heatsink Review
The Scythe Mine Rev.B is a funny looking cooler, with a 100mm fan at the center and two separate columns of aluminum cooling fins on either side.

Scythe Samurai SCSM-1000 Heatsink Review Scythe Samurai SCSM-1000 Heatsink Review
With this much copper above the CPU, it's easy to make quick assumptions about the Samurai's thermal capabilities that could be far from accurate.

Scythe SCKK-1000 Kama Cooler Heatsink Review Scythe SCKK-1000 Kama Cooler Heatsink Review
The word 'Kama' means scythe in Japanese, and with that we can only assume that the Scythe SCKK1000 is supposed to take a "slice out of heat..."

It functions by making use of the air currents that exist within a computer case to keep itself, and the processor cool.
