Scythe Launches Musashi Full Throttle VGA Cooler

Scythe announces its first original VGA Cooler, “Musashi” to the worldwide market. After several years of intensive and deep market research as well as our product development without compromise, the Musashi VGA Cooler is proudly ready with the various features, which users can take the advantages for silencing and cooling of VGA. Not to mention the importance of having wider compatibility with today’s VGA cards, the independent dual super thin 100mm fans allow users to independently control each fan speed to fulfill the demand for silent to over-clocking purposes.

Furthermore, single fan mode can be arranged by simply detaching 1 fan and place another fan onto the middle of the VGA cooler to intensively cool the GPU. By integrating the Scythe original “Kaze Jyu Slim 100mm Fan”, thickness of the VGA cooler becomes very thin, which can be fitted into the PC case in a compact way. Airflow can be directed to the entire graphic card to ensure the complete cooling of the graphic card. Ideal for gamers or simply replacing the noisy original cooler comes with your VGA, Scythe “Musashi” is here to fulfill your needs.

Looks like I want!:p

Very nice looking cooler, and comes with plenty of heatsinks. Wonder how it performs? Must be pretty good for $50.

I have an old BFG FX 5950 UT, that the fans are making some racket, this might be my fix.

You could just get a cheapo cooler, that would be plenty.

Was looking to upgrade my AC Accelero S1 with PAPST 150mm fan, turns out this isn't it.

Its just the mediocre dual fan that is the problem (27.6CFM LMAO!), slap on 2x fast/medium speed 92mm fans each pushing 45CFM, 90~ CFM total and watch the temps drop fast...

Actually, the link I provided was already with a Noctua NF-P12. Even with the same fan, both the scythe and the xigmatek get beat by the AC Accelero S1. Even AC's own TwinTurbo can't keep up.

It does look nice, real nice, but 100mm fans? Why not build it for 1 of the 3 standard size fans? I thnik for under $20 the CooLink graphics cooler is the way to go, with 80mm fans.

The thing that concerns me is only two heatpipes. This may work better with a HDT design, but when you have a block under the pipes the more pipes the better.

Doesn't look thick enough. I prefer something more robust.

The review was posted above, it sucked according to that German review, the price is way too high as well considering the Arctic Accelero S1 costs around half that price :D

. . . they named a heatsink after Miyamoto Musashi . . . . I dont see how a heatsink deserves this kind of name. . .

Nothing wrong in naming it after a legendary swordsman.

It does when the product doesn't quite make the cut.
