Scythe Setsugen High-End VGA Cooler

Scythe is announcing today the second High-End VGA Cooler by the name “Setsugen” (English: Snow field). Setsugen VGA Cooler is equipped with a genuine Slip Stream 120 mm Slim fan which comes with a fan controller that can be mounted in a free PCI Slot.  Fan speed can be individually adjusted between 800 (± 30%) to  2,000 rpm (± 10%) which creates an airflow of 19.40 to 45,47 CFM respectively 32 to 76 m³/h.  This allows the custom adjustment airflow and noise level (19.53 – 33.67 dBA) according to everyone’s requirements and system specific ambient.

In order to use the full potential of the supplied fan, the M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure) fin structure from the famous Mugen 2 CPU Cooler has been adopted. Thereby, Setsugen VGA Cooler is divided into 4 fin blocks whereas each of them is connected to a 6 mm thickness copper heatpipe.  To further simplify the mounting process, new mechanism has been  invented.  Depending on VGA card, four screws need to be shifted to the proper mounting hole locations, and then secure by using the supplied backplate and thumb screws.  Setsugen VGA Cooler is compatible to various VGA cards such as ATI® Radeon HD 4850, HD 4870, HD 4890, HD 5850 and HD 5870 as well as Nvidia® GeForce GTS 250, GTX 260, GTX 275, GTX 280 and GTX 285.  (Complete compatibility list can be found under the Specifications.)  Various of aluminum hetasinks in different size and shape are supplied along with thermal compound to allow the best possible compatibility and cooling for your VGA Card.

Setsugen VGA Cooler (Modell-Nr. SCVSG-1000) is available for 27,95 EUR (MSRP, excl. VAT) or US$ 39.50 (MSRP, excl. TAX).
