Ashura Shadow

Welcome the Ashura Shadow. Commemorating the 10th anniversary of Scythe on European turf is the special, limited edition of the latest entry to the high-end tower cooler family.

Technical specs and the original concept are identical to the base model, guaranteeing the same user-friendliness and a compact heatsink design while not sacrificing efficient cooling performance.The result is a CPU cooler shining with wide-spread compatibility to most current motherboard sockets while minimizing the risk of memory modules with tall heat sinks coliding with the Ashura Shadow. Its' from the ground-up newly developed mounting system realizes easy but reliable mounting to the majority of today's current, mainstream CPU sockets.Teamed up with the 140mm GlideStream fan sporting a max air flow of 165 m³/h makes the Ashura Shadow suitable for quiet as well as perfomance cooling, and can also be counted on as a reliable partner when overclocking is on the agenda.

Asymmetrical Design
The asymmetrical layout of the base plate allows the Ashura Shadow to be mounted in various clearances to the memory modules, making the usage of memory modules with tall heatsinks possible. Compatibility to various sockets and motherboards is increased, and user-friendly, simple installation of the Ashura Shadow is realized



Twin-Fan Installation
When developing the Ashura base model, the possibility for mounting a second fan was incorporated. The necessary spare pair of fan clips is therefore part of the accessory list also for the limited Shadow version. With a second fan helping, cooling performance can be further enhanced by applying the push & pull principal (The extra fan has to be purchased separately).





Newly Developed Mounting System
Another new feature can be seen is the Ashura Shadow's new mounting system. Based on the over-the-years experience of CPU cooler mounting sytems and Scythe expertise, the mounting was designed with the keywords "simplicity" and "reliability" in mind.



GlideStream 140 PWM
The 140mm GlideStream PWM covers all areas of cooling. Able to work both very quietly as well as with max cooling performance, it forms a perfect team with the new Ashura Shadow CPU cooler.
