Designed to deliver uncompromised performance with compact dimensions and maximum compatibility, the Kabuto 3 expands the Scythe cooler portfolio with a new top-flow model. Based on the experience with its predecessor and extensive customer feedback, the main focus points during development were an improved cooling performance and user experience as well as noise reduction. Made from nickel-plated copper, the finely polished base plate is carefully manufactured to exactly fit the heatpipes. This improves heat transfer and the overall cooling performance significantly. A 120 mm PWM fan from the proven and reliable GlideStream series is included. As known from its predecessor, the top-flow design also supports the cooling of motherboard components such as the chipset, VRMs, and memory modules. The Easy Clip Mounting System allows simple, safe and fast installation.
