Ryan Martin+ / 8 months ago
Scythe’s Big Shuriken series has been the CPU cooler of choice for a lot of system builders who are opting for small form factor systems or HTPCs and need a low profile yet high performance CPU cooler. Scythe’s original Big Shuriken was incredibly popular and so Scythe responded with the Big Shuriken 2 which adds another heat pipe and support for the X79 LGA 2011 platform. Today we are taking a look at this new Big Shuriken 2 from Scythe and seeing how it stacks up against other low profile CPU coolers. Measuring in at just 58mm high the main selling point of the Big Shuriken 2 is its height but Scythe are also looking to push the performance side of things with five 6mm heatpipes.
For those who are interested we’ve got some detailed specifications for you to see below but without any further ado let us proceed with the rest of the review.
