Samurai ZZ Rev.B

Announcing the arrival of the Samurai ZZ Rev.B - following in its' predecessors footsteps as a quiet lightweight at less than 500 g (16.6 oz), including the fan. Thanks to Scythe's original adaptor parts, this all-round CPU Cooler is now compatible with the latest socket from Intel - the LGA 2011. It is equipped with 3 U-shaped copper heatpipes and a 92 mm fan. It is specified for cooling of CPUs with a TDP of up to 130 W.  By using the improved V.T.M.S mounting mechanism, the Samurai ZZ Rev.B can be easily installed within just a few minutes on all common sockets including the latest LGA 2011. The new F.P.S technology uses the airflow for cooling of the upper and lower heatsink structure as well as surrounding motherboard components and VRs.

F.P.S. (Fast-Phase Structure)

Larger heatsink base and direct airflow towards lower heatsink block structure to provide a high cooling efficiency with compact heatsink dimensions.




Top Mount Fan

By pointing the airflow of the fan towards the motherboard, Chipsets and MOS-FETs on VR modules can be cooled simultaneously.




V.T.M.S. (Versatile Tool-free Multiplatform System)

Improved version of Versatile Tool-free Multiplatform System allows multiplatform installation without any tools on the latest Intel and AMD sockets.



Compatible with Intel LGA2011

The Samurai ZZ Rev.B's major improvement towards its' predecessor can be seen in the "fusion" of Scythe's newly developed LGA 2011 Rentention Brackets and the already highly praised VTMS (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) with its' AMD Clips which makes the Samurai ZZ Rev.B compatible with Intel's latest socket, the LGA 2011.
