Scythe calls the system used on Kabuto M.A.P.S. (Multiple Pass-Through Airflow Structure). So, the air of the fan is directed to the motherboard, passing through the upper heatsinks and helping to cool the lower heatsink, as well as the components near the CPU, like the voltage regulator, chipset and memory modules.

The base is made of nickel-plated copper with a perfect mirror surface, as you can see in Figure 9.
