Scythe SCKK1000 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..." or something figuratively along those lines. In practice, the 'Kama' is designed to cool both socket 478 Pentium 4 and socket 754/939 Athlon 64 processors. The 25mm thick 70mm fan spins at a leisurely 2850RPM, so the Scythe SCKK1000 doesn't produce all that much noise - making it a possible contender for lower noise mainstream cooling of either processor platform.

Of course, before we can make such recommendations, we'll have to take a closer look at the Scythe SCKK1000, how it is built, and most importantly how it handles the heat on FrostyTech's Synthetic Temperature Test platform.

The construction of the Scythe SCKK1000 is pretty straightforward. A thick copper base is soldered to an array of stacked copper fins. To the outside of this is an aluminum fan shroud which works to hold the fan in position, and direct airflow.

The fan shroud doubles up as a frame from which the SCKK1000 can be mounted to a socket 758/939 Athlon64 retention frame. Two spring tensioned screws are included for this very purpose, and thread through the fan shroud at either end. When used on a Pentium 4 processor, the clips rest over-top of the shroud to hold the nearly 600 gram firmly in place.
