Material of the CPU-Cooler-Baseplate
 
Dear customers,

since there have been some questions regarding the material of the CPU-cooler baseplates, just some short information. There have been rumors around, that Scythe is using aluminium due to cheaper prices, this is just wrong.

Due to its high susceptibility to oxidation, copper tends to corrode during the long transport from the factory to our distributors. There is no satisfactory way to avoid this corrosion. Because of this, all CPU coolers produced from the beginning of 2008 have a baseplate still consisting of copper, but this is now nickel-plated.


With this method, we want to improve the quality of our coolers giving all customers a product, which always meets our high standards.

Cheers,
Stefan
