Scythe Samurai ZZ - Long Live The Downdraft Cooler
 
Scythe has long since filled our imagination with creative and innovative solutions for CPU cooling. Living up to that long tradition we are greeted with their latest solution in a diverse market. The Scythe Samurai ZZ.

Downdraft coolers have never been embraced with the popularity held by the vaunted tower cooler. Yet, they still remain an option... [ Read full article ]

Only 3 heatpipes, not 6!
 
Although it looks like 6 heatpipes, it is in fact 3 U-shaped heatpipes as described on the Scythe website.

Actually...this is 6 heatpipe no? Maybe I can't count from 1 to 6...Nice cooler for HTPC can't wait to see some result!

"SAMURAI-ZZ" 3Heat Pipes CPU Cooler
http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cp...-main2_203.jpg http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif Price:$ 36.50 http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/bot_buy.gif http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif Samurai ZZ is a new top-flow CPU Cooler weighing only 16.6 oz., respectively 495 g (included Fan), and it is equipped with 3 u-shaped Copper-Heat pipes as well as a 92 mm Fan. It is specified for cooling of CPUs with a TDP of up to 130 W. By using the improved V.T.M.S mounting mechanism, Samurai ZZ can be easily installed within just a few minutes in all common sockets including the new socket LGA1156. New F.P.S technology uses the airflow for cooling of upper and lower heatsink structure as well as surrounding motherboard components and VRs. http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/spacer.gif http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cp...0-main_150.jpg http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cp...-side2_150.jpg http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cp...00-pac_150.jpg http://www.scythe-usa.com/images/lea...ifications.jpg Model Name: SAMURAI-ZZ CPU Cooler Model Name: SCSMZ-2000 Manufacturer: Scythe Co., Ltd.

Larger heatsink base and direct airflow towards lower heatsink block structure to provide a high cooling efficiency with compact heatsink dimensions.

Top Mount Fan
By pointing the airflow of the fan towards the motherboard, Chip sets and MOS-FETs on VR modules can be cooled simultaneously.

V.T.M.S. (Versatile Tool-free Multi platform System)
Improved version of Versatile Tool-free Multi platform System allows multi platform installation without any tools on the latest Intel and AMD sockets.

Looking forward to seeing a review by HWC on this latest heatsink

I apologize first, but this name sure reminds me of Gundam ZZ :ph34r:

Hmm, their timing is pretty much going to put them right up against Prolimatech's new David cooler, which uses a 120mm fan. Could be an interesting shootout there.

Oops, my bad. That novel they wrote for their promo brochure threw me off. :whistle: Apparently, there's a competition between Prolim and Scythe for abstract naming of heatsinks.

Still, it'd be nice to see a good review involving the two. I'm probably moving to an LC20 sometimes in the next few months, and I'll need a low-profile air sink until I get the water sorted out.

martin_metal_88 May 25, 2010 06:08 AM

Water cooling in a LC20? wow taht would be nice! I am still not understanding why Scythe claim it's a 3 heat pipe when we clairly see 6. Are the U under the cooler on the contact area? maybe.
