Scythe enhances Cooler Mounting: CPU Cooler Stabilizer 775 replaces Push Pins

The Japanese cooling specialist Scythe Co. Ltd. unveils the new CPU Cooler Stabilizer 775. With this product, mounting of LGA 775 Coolers is possible without using the Push Pins. With the supplied Push Pin Removal-Tool, displacing the original Push Pins is no problem anymore. Secure mounting of the cooler is possible using Back-Plate and screws. The whole product consists of metal and is really solid.

When using the Stabilizer on Socket 478 CPU Coolers, the included mounting bars are used. By using those, the CPU Cooler Stabilizer 775 provides a better contact pressure between CPU and Cooler than using conventional mounting solutions.

The CPU Cooler Stabilizer 775 is a consequent selective further development of the popular Universal Retention Kit. Included in the package, there are many accessories to ensure compatibility and performance: Back-Plate, Metal Mounting Bar for Socket 478, Screws, Copper Spacer, Insulation Washer, Push-Pin Removal Tool and a small package of Thermal Grease.

Contents: Back-Plate, Metal Mounting Bar for Socket 478, Screw for Back-Plate, Copper Spacer, Insulation Washer (Thick), Insulation Washer (Thin), Screw for Back-Plate (775), Fixing Screw for Back-Plate (775), Fixing Screw for CPU Cooler (775), Push-Pin Removal Tool, and Thermal Grease.

Scythe CPU Cooler Stabilizer 775 is available for 6,90 Euro + VAT / US$ 11,50 + TAX. For K8 / AM2 and AM2+, CPU Cooler Stabilizer AM2 will be announced within the next couple of weeks.

Wonder if this is worth getting for my Arctic Cooler 7. I love it, except sometimes I wonder if those pins are really holding it on like it should be.

Surely this should have been the logical option rather than those nasty push pins from day 1? :wtf: Especially with these increasingly huge CPU coolers.

I've yet to have an issue with the push-pins, but the bolt kit for larger coolers would make more sense imo. I don't think on mid-size and smaller coolers that big of a difference would be noticed, I can speak only for myself that the bolt kit for my Xig made no difference in temps, and really it felt no more or less secured than the push-pins (which had been used over a dozen times). But I wanted to see what all the talk was about...really nothing too crazy imo, the push pins are easy to use and in my experience have worked well...if they truly were horrible, intel would've made something different...for access to the CPU they can't be beat imo.

But for larger coolers I can only imagine this would make total sense, push pins on those does sound to be kind of ignorant...so good thing they came out with this for those that need the kit in that purpose.

the AM2 clip for Ninja cooler are crap, its hard to lock it down and release, hope they come up with something better.

Good thing about push pin is you don't need to remove the board to install the cooler, but now you need to.

Hopefully they don't make the AM2 the same way.

got i love thermalright, sure u pay a bit more, but they now come with bolt down AND clip options, once you addup the extra cost, its well worth the price of an ultra 90 or ultra 120 vs other options :) (mine was 28bucks with a ultra high speed panaflow fan :) )

So this replaces the pins on a push-pin cooler ?

Agreed with Kursah.

On any small/med sized coolers, this just isn't necessary. All it does is add hassle in having to remove the motherboard and add a backplate.

On larger coolers, yes it *might* help, but normally all large coolers have their own backplate design mechanism.

Even something like the v14 pro. As big as it is, the push pins have absolutely no problems with it.

The only thing I can see this coming in handy for is for broken push pins.

Heh, finally something to replace those god forsaken push pins. Glad to see this, I may wind up getting it for my AC Freezer. I always feel like I am going to break the motherboard in half when installing it.
