Scythe Big Shuriken CPU Cooler Review

This time we tested a low profile CPU cooler, the Scythe Big Shuriken. Only 58 mm tall, it is made to fit even SFF cases. It has a horizontal design, with four heatpipes and a 120 mm low profile fan. But, can it perform as well as its "big brothers"?

The Scythe coolers name comes from japanese words, most of them referring to the samurai. Shuriken, as any ninja movies addicted knows, is a sort of metal star, thin and with sharp blades, so this name alludes to a thin, but powerful product. There is a smaller version called Shuriken, with a 100 mm fan, but we tested Big Shuriken, with 120 mm fan.

The Big Shuriken box is small and simple, as you can see in Figure 1.

Inside the box we found the cooler, a small bag of gray thermal compound, user manual and the installation hardware.
