Scythe Announces the Rasetsu Performance CPU Cooler

Japanese manufacturer Scythe officially announces the new CPU Cooler Rasetsu. This cooler, already shown at the CeBit 2010, combines the outstanding design of the Yasya CPU Cooler with a top-flow layout. The heatsink is divided into two blocks, and each is equipped with the T.M.L.F. (Trident Multi Layer Fin) structure. Because of this irregular lamellar structure and the unparallel arrangement of six copper heatpipes, surface directly cooled by the fan is highly increased and thus maximum heat dissipation is achieved.

New 120 mm "Slip Stream 120 PWM Adjustable" fan is supplied for optimized airflow. Although the fan supports the PWM feature, user can manually adjust the bandwidth between 470 to 1,370 rpm and 740 to 1,900 rpm. Easy mounting is available by the famous V.T.M.S. (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) which requires no motherboard removal for the heatsink mounting. Rasetsu CPU Cooler is compatible to all current sockets, including the new socket LGA 1156, LGA 1366 and AM3.

The Scythe Rasetsu CPU Cooler is now available in stores at a price of US$ 55.00 (excl. Tax) / 33,50 Euro (Excl. VAT).

The Cooler Master V8 has the same thing.

This is like a low-profile Scythe Yasya.

I'm fairly sure it's literally one turned on its side ( with different heat pipe arrangement due to this obviously)

Looks to be true, same fins but in a different arrangement and bent+less heatpipes.

This is by far one of the craziest coolers I've seen in a while. I like it. Good to see some originality. Scythe are generally very good as well so this is something I would buy.

I read it as the you were implying the Japanese area bit odd ball, which they are.

Nowt wrong with that.

I wouldn't be offended if people said people from the Island I'm from tend to be a lil more eccentric XD
