High cooling performance with compact dimensions - Scythe presents new Katana 3 CPU Cooler

Katana is named by the Japanese sword, Katana, which is produced in a complicated manufacturing process which has been improved over the centuries. Characteristic of the Japanese katana compared to European sword types is its slightly curved shape, which also can be found in the Scythe Katana CPU Cooler series.

So called Slant Pipe Structure (S.P.S.) of the Katana 3 CPU cooler enables the supplied 92 mm PWM fan not only to transport away heat of the CPU cooler but to also cool sensitive components on the motherboard.


Enlarged surface of the Base Plate allows dissipating additional heat, which is increasing the overall performance of the cooler. This F.P.S. technology (Fast-Phase Structure) means gain of performance of the cooler without changing the compact size of the Scythe Katana 3.
