Scythe Announces the SCY-920S Entry-level Cooler

Scythe may still be a relatively underground brand in the West, but having reviewed a number of their products in the past (which you can check out here) we have never failed to be impressed with their designs, performance and price points. Put simply, if you’re looking for a decent air cooler, but don’t want to spend the money necessary for the high-end brands, then Scythe is an excellent alternative.

So, based on this, when they announce that a new cooler product is due to hit the market, they definitely have our attention.

Scythe SCY-920S

So, what do we know about the Scythe SCY-920S? Well, it will essentially represent an air cooler designed to work within tower cases that will provide a budget-friendly alternative to stock cooling solutions.

In a report via TechPowerUp, some of the main features include:

  • Up to 95w compatibility
  • Support for AM4 and LGA115X sockets
  • 2 x 6mm thick copper heat pipes
  • 92mm fan running at 500 – 2000RPM
  • CFM of 7.1 – 48.2 with noise levels of 8.3 – 28.3 dBA
  • Dimensions – 87mm x 62mm x 127mm – Weight 280g

What Do We Think?

Set for release in mid-December, at the time of writing Scythe hasn’t confirmed the price for the SCY-920S. Albeit, it does appear that this may be a Japanese exclusive release. As such, those of us in the West are probably going to miss out on this one.

In regards to that name (SCY-920S), you can probably expect that while this will remain as the formal model identification it will likely get a more fancy-sounding product name on launch. I mean, with prior models called the Mugen, Katana, and Fuma we can’t see Scythe not giving this one something a bit flashy.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Scythe coolers? – Let us know in the comments!
