The Ashura, or the SCASR-1000 as it is known by model number, will fit on anything Intel has released since LGA772, and AMD boards since AM2. The Ashura is made with a stack of 50 unusually designed fins that surround six 6mm diameter heat pipes, while utilizing a nickel plated copper base to start the cooling process. This design leaves you with a cooler that stands 161mm tall, 65mm thick and 145mm wide. All told, with the fan excluded, the cooler weighs in at 750 grams. A few of things I didn't touch on are the thick black anodized top plate over the 50 fins, the offset that the heat pipes offer to allow you to access all of your memory slots, and the fact that the cooler is designed to allow for a push/pull configuration.
Speaking of the fan, as there is only one included in the box, you are shipped a 140mm Glide Stream PWM fan to cool the tower. The SY1425HB12M-P fan included in the kit offers 97 CFM at near 1300 RPM. This 25mm thick fan is also rated to 30.7dBA of noise level and it can produce 1.02mmH2O of static pressure. Along with the cooler and this fan, you also get a completely new hardware kit, similar to what we saw on the Mugen 4, but not exactly the same. The hardware is now black, and some of the hardware that goes along with the brackets to mount them to the board has also changed for the Ashura. The Ashura comes with a two year warranty.
While I was not able to find any information on what the MSRP was set at from Scythe, after digging through Google and coming up empty in my searches, I decided to go another route. As I was running through the list of e-tailers that I have in my favorites, I was starting to think that this cooler wasn't yet for sale. Wouldn't you figure it though, as I was working from the bottom of my list to the top alphabetically, when I got all the way to the top, I finally hit pay dirt.
Amazon is the only place that I was able to locate the Scythe Ashura, and they are currently asking $61.63 prior to shipping charges at the time of writing. While it does break past that $50 mark that people like to stay under, this isn't the average 120mm tower cooler either.
