Scythe Announces Compact Byakko CPU Cooler
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
Scythe released a new CPU cooler that is both compact enough to fit into pretty much any chassis but also fits pretty much any CPU socket that is available. The Scythe Byakko is a tower-type CPU cooler for both AMD and Intel CPUs that with its 130 mm height will fit into most builds. At the same time, the asymmetric alignment of the base-plate and heatsink will provide enough clearance for both memory slots and motherboard heatsinks alike.
The new Byakko CPU cooler comes with a pre-installed Slip Stream 92 PWM (SY9225SL12M-P) axial fan which offers a flexible speed range starting at ultra-silent 300 RPM and going up to 2.300 RPM for best performance. This speed range allows steady airflow from 11,38 to 79,09 m³/h, respectively 6,70 to 46,55 CFM.
The overall dimensions of the Byakko are just 102 mm by 130 mm by 84 mm (W/H/D). It is built with three high-quality copper heat pipes each with a 6 mm diameter which are connected to a solid copper base-plate and the aluminium fin stack. Both the heat pipes and the base plate have been nickel-plated in the final process which avoids corrosion and quality.
Scythe’s Byakko is equipped with a simple yet versatile mounting system, allowing secure and fast mounting process on various CPU sockets. The list of compatible CPU Sockets is long and covers all major sockets, such as the Intel Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as the AMD Sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. The package includes all required clips for both at the same time and it also comes packed with thermal grease.
The new Scythe Byakko (SCBYK-1000) is available now and it comes with an MSRP of just €20.50 without VAT/Taxes.
