The prime mission for the Scythe Kodati was to be as low-slung as possible, having mini-ITX mainboards, extremely narrow cases such has HTPCs as well as self-configured NAS systems in its' sight for a "new home". With this in mind, an only 34 mm in height, extremely compact heatsink left the "developer's quarters" at Scythe. The 10 mm high fan found space below the cooling fins - its' humble size making this possible. The PWM-regulated fan provides stable and reliable cooling of processors with a TDP of up to 65 watts. Mounting the Kodati is done without a black plate, increasing compatibility as possible interference with electronic components on the rear side of the mainboard can be avoided.
