Scythe Orochi Ready to Meet its Competitors

Announced today in Japan and set to become widely available for purchase from 21th February, this is the third new processor cooler coming from Scythe within a month. Expected to become the most expensive Scythe cooler, the Orochi may well deserve the title "overkill" with its 10 massive heatpipes, 1155gm weight and huge dimensions: 120x194x155mm (height). On top of this beast you'll find a 140mm fan spinning at 500 rpm, which may also be mounted vertically. The Scythe Orochi is compatible with all Intel P4 478/775 and AMD Athlon64 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+ Sockets. Please visit the product page for more information.

There is such a thing as too big, and this is it. 1150g? I think not.

It should come with some sort of motherboard "cage" to reinforce it.

Thats a huge beast!! I wonder if it will fit in my Silverstone case??? Propably not with the fan on top, maybe vertically?? Cant wait for real world results... Nice to see also what kind of mounting kit you get with it?? If gets high score´s by reviewers, this might be my new cooler to replace the old Ultra120 Xtreme.

the 3rd photo in that series would show the mobo going FLIP and disappearing due to the weight of the heatsink throwing it off that box.

Probably comes with some sort of zip tie to suspend it from the top of the case like the Titan Amanda did.

i'd like to see some benchmarks on this to see the cooling performance.

this is a beast!
I dont think its meant to go into cases tho, cause everyone knows at 1150Gs your gonna snap your mobo right in half.

Its meant for OCing competitions, and people that half their PCs built caseless.

Its insane tho! It is as big as that mobo that its on!!!!

there comes a point when one must ask, "is that really necessary?" 1150g is ridiculously asinine, that kind of stress on a motherboard is not good; i'd be surprised if this ever actually makes it to shelves.

Someone has been looking too much of photoshopped cpu coolers and though 'hey, let's make one and the joke is on them!' :D

That's like Unicron of the Transformers, mass so big that other cpu coolers orbit around it!

LOL! one would have to make a hole in the side if his/her case so it would fit.
I like the way the have held it down, so it does not fall over :p

I think it should come with two solid iron fans in a push-pull configuration, because in all honesty it's not really heavy enough yet. :rolleyes:

These things are going to open a whole new niche market for case installed "cooler cranes".
Pretty soon it's going to take more than one person to lift the mobo to install it. :roll:
