Kotetsu Mark II TUF Gaming Alliance

In cooperation with Asus, Scythe presents the TUF Gaming Alliance version of the Kotetsu Mark II CPU cooler. Design elements, such as a topplate decorated with the TUF logo and the well-known pattern, as well as a 120mm RGB LED Kaze Flex fan with matching yellow rubber decouplers optically connect the cooler with the remaining TUF Gaming Alliance components. Four nickel-plated heatpipes complete the overall picture and convey an appealing and valuable look. The heatsink features compact dimensions and is designed for maximum compatibility. A height of only 154 mm fits almost every standard PC-Case while the asymmetrical design of the heatsink ensures full memory and graphics card compatibility. The optimized and user-friendly mounting system allows for installation on all current CPU-sockets including Intels Socket 2066 and AMDs AM4.


TUF Gaming Alliance Design

The Kotetsu Mark II TUF Gaming Alliance CPU Cooler combines the good cooling performance and compact dimensions of the Kotetsu Mark II with the striking design of the Asus TUF Gaming Alliance series. RGB LED illumination, yellow design elements as well as the recurring TUF logo on the striking top plate and the fan, set visual accents that can be found on all TUF Gaming Alliance products. The illumination can be controlled via Asus Aura Sync or a similar control system.

Kaze Flex 120 PWM Fan

The Kotetsu Mark II TUF Gaming Alliance is equipped with a PWM fan from the award-wining Kaze Flex series, operating in a range from 300 to 1200 RPM. The self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB) reduces friction and wear to a minimum, resulting in an average lifespan of 120 000 hours. Rubber pads mounted in the fan frame have a decoupling effect and prevent the transfer of vibrations. The eight RGB LEDs are operated by a standard 4-Pin 12V RGB cable that can be directly controlled by the common RGB system of various motherboard manufacturers.

Asymmetrical and low height design

Aiming for maximum compatibility the heatsink is not centered above the baseplate, but slightly offset to the side and back. This assymetrical design allows for unrestricted use of all memory slots. It also points the heatsink away from the graphics card, leaving enough space for even the bulkiest GPU coolers. With a compact height of only 154 mm the Kotetsu Mark II easily fits all standard PC Cases.

H.P.M.S. III (Hyper Precision Mounting System III)

The secure and user-friendly Hyper Precision Mounting system centers around a preassembled mounting bar, which features spring-loaded screws to guarantee perfect contact pressure. In combination with an updated backplate and rubber / plastic spacers the system offers a convenient installation process and compatibility to all current sockets including AMD®s AM4 and Intel®s LGA 2066 platforms.
