Japanese cooling expert Scythe has released the third version of its famous TOP-Flow-CPU-Cooler Kabuto, the Kabuto 3.
The new version incorporates a revamped heatsink design as well as heatsink structure with a hybrid heatpipe system. The hybrid system consists of two 6mm and 8mm high-quality copper heatpipes. Kabuto 3 is fitted with a Scythe Glide Stream 120mm fan that features a redesigned small center hub as well as fan blades, allowing for reduction of air resistance and lower operating noise. The fan runs between the speed range of 300 to 1400 rpm, delivering an airflow from 21.96 to 113.34 m³/h (12.93 ~ 79.0 CFM) while maintaining noise levels between 4 to 28.0 dB(A).
The Scythe Kabuto 3 cooler is compatible with Intel Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as AMD Sockets AMD2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, and FM2+. It is now on sale in Europe with a MSRP of 38.00 € (excluding VAT/taxes).
