Big Shuriken 3 Rev. B
The third generation of the Big Shuriken CPU cooler features a low profile and an unconventional, asymmetrical heatsink design for unrestricted RAM compatibility. Thanks to the five nickel-plated copper heatpipes and the large cooling surface, the Big Shuriken 3, which is only 67 mm high, offers superb cooling performance for its dimensions as well as outstanding compatibility for modern ITX and HTPC systems. New in Revision B is the Kaze Flex 120 II Slim PWM fan, which is installed here for the first time and has a reduced height of just 15 mm. Despite the low height, the fan is equipped with a fully-fledged, closed liquid bearing (Fluid Dynamic Bearing) and rubberized contact surfaces. If required, the fan can also be replaced with another regular 120mm fan with 25mm height using an alternative set of screws included in the package. The revised mounting system also enables the Big Shuriken 3 Rev. B to be fully compatible with sockets LGA1700 and AM5.
