Gabriel Roşu / 4 years ago
For its 10th Anniversary, Scythe announced a special edition of its Ashura tower cooler which bears the name Scythe Ashura Shadow. The first noticeable feature about the Ashura Shadow is its eye-catching black anodized finish which even extends to the baseplate.
The company claims to have made several design tweaks to the Ashura heatsink, the connecting heatpipes, and the solid copper baseplate, all of which contribute to improved performance. Given the previous Ashura model, the Ashura Shadow features six 6mm copper heatpipes connecting to anodized aluminium fins with overall dimensions of 145mm x 161mm x 65mm and weighing 750g. A single 140mm Glide Stream fan with pulse width modulation control is included in the pack, along with clips to connect another fan to the rear for push-pull cooling. Using just the supplied fan, Scythe states that the heatsink varies from 13dBA at its slowest 500rpm speed to 30.7dBA with an impressive 97.18CFM airflow.
The Ashura Shadow is compatible with all recent Intel and AMD sockets along with mounting clips, a screw-based mounting system, tightening tool and a small portion of thermal grease all being included in the packaging. Scythe has claimed that the Ashura Shadow will be produced in strictly limited quantities.No details of pricing has been officially made available up until now, having the price tag only rumored at $53 / €39.50 / £33 excluding V.A.T.
