Tue Sep 21, 2010 | 9:02A| PermaLink
The Mjölner also known as Thors Hammer is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. The Hammer was forged by Sindri (or Eitri) and his brother Brokkr after Loki bet his head that they could not make something as beautiful as what the dwarves named the Sons of Ivaldi had made (Odins Spear [Gungnir] and Freyers Foldable Boat [Skídbladnir]). Well Loki lost this bet when the Hammer was created and because of a technicality having to do with not being able to cut off the head because the neck being cut was not part of the deal, so Brokkr sewed Loki’s mouth shut. So now that we have a history of this fabled hammer let’s see what this beautiful piece of engineering can do for your CPU Cooling needs. Will the Xigmatek Thors Hammer Live up to its Heritage or will we have to sew some mouths shut, let’s find out:

Katana 3 CPU Cooler - FrostyTech.com Katana 3 CPU Cooler
Sat May 23, 2009 | 4:01P| PermaLink
The multi-awarded Katana 2 is now unveiled in a further developed version. The Japanese specialist cooling Scythe Co., Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) publishes the Katana 3 CPU cooler.

Katana is named by the Japanese sword, Katana, which is produced in a complicated manufacturing process which has been improved over the centuries. Characteristic of the Japanese katana compared to European sword types is its slightly curved shape, which also can be found in the Scythe Katana CPU Cooler series. So called Slant Pipe Structure (S.P.S.) of the Katana 3 CPU cooler enables the supplied 92 mm PWM fan not only to transport away heat of the CPU cooler but to also cool sensitive components on the motherboard. Enlarged surface of the Base Plate allows dissipating additional heat, which is increasing the overall performance of the cooler. This F.P.S. technology (Fast-Phase Structure) means gain of performance of the cooler without changing the compact size of the Scythe Katana 3. The Scythe Katana 3 CPU cooler is now available for an MSRP of $32.00 excluding TAX / €16,75 excluding VAT.
