There is quite the lineup of CPU coolers, VGA coolers and even a chassis in Scythe's lineup nowadays. The fast growing company also sells power supplies amongst other products, but just in the three mentioned previously, that's about twenty products in their current inventory, plus all kinds of goods in the others. This is quite the lineup for "DIY PC Experts". Personally I haven't had the opportunity to look at much of that inventory yet, but I was able to look at their only chassis, the Fenris Wolf that Benny Franz had a hand in designing. Another is the highly underrated cooler, Mugen2. That cooler is a bare knuckles bruiser, as long as the mounting system doesn't frustrate you into buying something else.
With a pretty serious lineup of products already out from Scythe, they decided to rethink and redesign to bring life to a name that has been with Scythe for many years. The Samurai cooler was a cantankerous looking cooler developed in the days when there was little thought of overclocking with the jumpers, or modifying the sockets for more volts. As the needs of users changed, Scythe rolled with the punches and developed the Samurai Z. This was a very basic, two heat-pipe cooler and I use that term loosely. By today's standards, those two pipes ran to the outer edges and would have improved cooling then, but it couldn't handle the TDP of today's processors. With the Samurai Z there was even improvement made and a revision "b" cooler was soon out on shelves.
Even with all the working and reworking of the Samurai coolers, Scythe saw ways to improve the idea even further. This time around the Samurai gets more pipes and a very unique mounting setup, which has moved up to include all the newest sockets from both AMD and Intel. Since its inception, the Samurai coolers have never taken up loads of room, as do tower coolers. At that time it was more the normal size for coolers. Today it offers those with a SFF or HTPC chassis; yet another candidate to cool your machines. With all the new goods and redesign, Scythe has also adapted the naming as to differentiate this against the previous versions. Today we will be taking a look at the Samurai ZZ from Scythe. Let's get it mounted to the T.E.C.C. and see just how well it does.
