Does anyone really use their Kama line?
The world has pretty much embraced the tower-design, hell Scythe really pushed the tower design into mainstream, with the Ninja.

I just can't believe they would use screws to secure the fan!

The clip/retention bracket design is pretty common place and wouldn't have been THAT hard to implement would it?

I find some of those fan clips to be wicked annoying to remove sometimes though.

I actually like the introduction of screws, not only is it much more secure, but you can add your own 120mm fan (if I read that right)..

Interesting design on the heatsink, I'd really like to see Scythe get good results with this cooler, first heat sink that cared for RAM clearance..

TH did a review on the predecessor of this. It performed quite terribly, and was given a 'fail' rating.
