Scythe Releases the Kodati CPU Cooler

The evolving PC market moves towards yet smaller and faster Computer systems. Scythe reacts to the trend and offers its most compact Top-Flow CPU Cooler, which is focusing on small PCs and Mini-ITX based chassis. Kodati supports the latest platforms of both AMD and Intel. Scythe introduces the simplistic E.I.S mounting system with the Kodati, which allows fast mounting without the need for a backplate.

The CPU cooler is amazingly compact with the dimensions of 82,5 x 95 x 34 mm (3.25 x 3.74 x 1.34 inch) and low weight of mere 180 grams (6.35 oz). Thanks to its height of only 34 millimeters and the fan being mounted between the heatsink and the baseplate, it is possible to use the Kodati even in really slim chassis where other heatsinks won't fit.

CPU-Heat is being passed from the copper-baseplate to the aluminum fin-structure using two 6 mm copper-heatpipes. Both the heatpipes and the baseplate have been nickel-plated. Scythe supplies the Kodati CPU cooler with a preinstalled Slip Stream Slim 80 PWM fan. The 80-millimeter fan can be controlled by the motherboard, thanks to the PWM-function, in the range from 800 and 3.300 RPM. Hence allows the fan to move between 6,0 and 24,82 cubic feet per minute (10,2 ~ 42,2m³/h) at a low noise level from 8,2 to 32,5 dBA.

Compatibility to a big variety of sockets has always been a strong point of Scythe CPU Coolers. The new Kodati supports the Intel sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156 and LGA1366 as well as AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. Scythe suggests a maximum TDP of 65 watts for the Kodato CPU Cooler. In case of well-cooled PC case environments, CPUs with a maximum TDP of 88 Watt can be cooled as well. The new "Easy Installation with Screw" mounting system has been developed especially for the Kodati, to allow easy mounting without the need of a backplate. All required mounting clips, as well as the user manual and thermal grease are supplied in the Kodati package.

Scythe Kodati CPU Cooler (Model no. SCKDT-1000) is available as of today, whereas the suggested retail price is 18,00 EUR (excl. Taxes).

80mm? With 2 fans this might even outperform the stock Intel cooler! But then it may be too thick to fit in a mini-ITX chassis, so this looks like a cooler one can safely forget about.

That's was, in fact, the whole idea behind the intel OEM cooler configuration. I wish they'd make a large scale version of this with 6 heatpipes, though access to RAM would be difficult.
