Just recently I had a look at the Scythe Samurai ZZ, which is a much needed adaptation of an older concept, so it should still perform well with today's processors in even the tightest of quarters. This time we are going to the other end of the spectrum and looking at a tower cooler. Scythe has had quite the success with some of their previous tower coolers. Names like Ninja, Ninja Mini and Mugen 2 pop into my mind. I only personally tested the Mugen 2 and I for one was impressed. While that cooler was massive and a bit tricky to install in some cases, the fact that the fans could go on all four sides was innovative and the bulk of the cooler allowed for great temperatures.
While the Mugen 2 was a bulky, rather unattractive and more industrial looking cooler, today we have a tower cooler with aluminum fins and copper heat pipes and Scythe even keeps the pre-cooler on board. But that is where the similarities end. The design, concepts and physics built into the latest sample are in a way something I have seen, such as offset fins, but this Trident Multi Layer Fin Structure is something completely new. Now, I have seen notches and cuts and curves, even closing off the sides to get better temperatures and fan air flow, but never implemented like this.
Scythe has done well with the cooler I previously tested and since it doesn't make too good of business sense to release something worse, I am eager to see just what all this technical talk on the box is all about. Join me as I get my first look at some new designs and hopefully a cooler that can offer good numbers in our testing without breaking the bank. This new CPU cooler is called the Yasya, or it also goes by the number SCYS-1000 and from the MSRP I can say it meets one requirement. Let's have a look at what the Yasya from Scythe brings to the table.
