As far as hardware is concerned, this is all you get, which solidifies Scythe's "make it easy to use" campaign. The AMD latch system will slide on the top of the base, while two keys on both sides lock it into place. In case you do not have any TIM around, Scythe supplies enough for a few tries at mounting the Byakko.





We wanted to verify what fan was used, so we took it off the tower to have it here now. We indeed do have the SY9225SL 12H-CSP fan advertised in the specifications. We also find that at the end of the bright wire, there is a 4-pin PWM fan connection.




The instructions are multi-lingual, and it does take some concentration to find the appropriate text that applies to you. However, with the ease of use, the Byakko is built for, we honestly could have gotten by without any instructions at all. It is self-explanatory.
