Scythe Kama Cross CPU Cooler
By Gabriel Torres on May 2, 2007


The Japanese high-end CPU cooler manufacturer Scythe will be launching a new CPU cooler in the next few weeks, called Kama Cross. We had the chance to take a look at this forthcoming CPU cooler before its official release, check it out.

Like all CPU coolers from Scythe, Kama Cross will have a unique design. It will have two heatsinks installed in V relatively to the CPU, each one connected to the cooler aluminum base by three copper heat-pipes, for a total of six heat-pipes. On top of the two heatsinks there is a 100 mm fan running at 1,500 rpm and providing 42.69 cfm of airflow. This fan can be replaced by a 120 mm if you like.

Users that already know Scythe products can clearly note that this product isnt as high-end as other CPU coolers from this Japanese manufacturer, being more like a mid-range product, compared to other products from them, of course. It should arrive the US market costing around USD 50.00.
