Scythe intros Zipang 2 CPU Cooler


Hamburg, Germany. 08. July 2009: The market-leading brand for cooling solutions Scythe, announces the successor of the famous top-flow CPU Cooler "Zipang". The new Zipang 2 CPU Cooler comes with various improvements including reduction of the overall weight by 100 g to 715 g and not to neglect, increase in performance.


Improvements in performance were achieved by adopting and further tuning the M.A.P.S.(Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure) which is known from the chart leading Mugen 2 CPU Cooler. Each of the total 6 copper-heatpipes is connected to a separated block of aluminum fins, from which the heat dissipation is resolved. Further optimization was done by utilizing M.A.P.S.(Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure) to use the airflow more efficiently. Constant airflow of 51.43 CFM (87 m³/h) is generated by the Scythe original Kaze Maru 140 mm fan which was used in the former Zipang CPU Cooler. To keep the noise level as low as 22.74 dba, the Kaze Maru fan rotates at a fan speed of 1,000 rpm.

Zipang 2 CPU Cooler can be customized according to the individual wishes of every user by exchanging the supplied fan to any aftermarket 120 mm case fans to reach more airflow and performance or lower fan speed and noise level. 120 mm case fan can be mounted using the supplied mounting clips which are used for the pre-mounted Kaze Maru 140 mm fan. Further improvements were achieved by adopting the V.T.M.S. (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) to the new Zipang 2 CPU Cooler to allow tool-free mounting to all common CPU sockets including AM3 and LGA1366.


Zipang 2 CPU Cooler is available for MSRP 39.00 EUR (excluding VAT) or US$ 58.00 (excluding TAX).
