    Scythe is displaying quite a few new cooling solution as well as some prototypes. Let us start with the concepts first. The "Godhand" is an extremely large CPU cooler, which hovers over the top half of the mainboard. Then there is a large, passive block with heatpipes. This unit is intended for midrange GPUs and can handle around 60W of heat. Then there is a large version of the Kama Cross, simply called Kama Grand Cross.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The new retail coolers are quite numerous as well. The Kabuto and Zipang 2 use seperated aluminum fins, so that each heatpipe has their own set of cooling fins to use. They are also offering a new Shuriken unit, which manages to be even lower than the original, but also feature a larger 120 mm fan. The Ninja Wire on the other hand is a simple, metal string, which is intended to hold a large CPU cooler in place and take the strain off the mainboard.

    Scythe is also working on power supplies, and their Kamariki series is ready to go, while the Chouriki is still in the works. The Kamariki uses some modular cables and gives you the option to connect three fans directly to the power supply. These are then regulated by the amount of total power drawn from the PSU.

    I don't see how well it can do, but it shows that it can help the motherboard...

    looking at all those pictures, it seems they either are sloppily built or their shipping containers are crap because i noticed alot of the fins are bent on all the coolers.

    There's just not a lot of room in most cases to be throwing around grappling hooks and whatnot.:laugh:

    That godhand fan looks like it not only cools, but gives your pc the ability to hover as it acts as a helicopter rotorblade...

    I'm liking the look of the kama grandcross as well.

    I agree, but it takes up 4 PCI slots without fans. :eek:

    Something tells me they literally slapped them together within the last few days exclusively for the show.

    I had a Kama Cross (i'm referring to the original old version), i dumped it for the Intel boxed cooler as my q6600 was hotter even with a big and nasty 2000 rpm 120 mm cooler strapped on these "Japanese" . :nutkick:

    first impressions make or break a product line, if they are crap at the beginning there is no confidence they are going to be better, just like the US Economy, and you can't blame the bush admin for all of that stuff, because the ball is in Obama's court now.

    That was a very odd segway into completely unrelated politics. :shadedshu

    I can't believe that Scythe is showing these as samples! They only indicate poor quality. I mean if a company can't produce a good looking sample what is the real product going to look like.

    the fanless vga coller isn't of the best quality, those alu metal plates should move like that, they should have a good contact with the pipes to soak in all the heat!
    but OMG... lobe huge cpu coolers

    Special feature of these new coolers: they crush your CPU and/or graphics card when used. Seriously, with that much copper and aluminium, I shudder to think of the weight of these coolers...

    This Ninja Wire thing is weird man. I see some poor building quality of GPU fins, that can do damage shortening PCB.

    Not clever. If a heatpipe is less effective than the others, or if a CPU has a hotspot (for whatever reason, but an obvious one is when ONE core gets thrashed)... then you essentially have a "mini" fin system to cool the hotspot... rather than the WHOLE fin/cooler. No. Fins should be joined... so that the WHOLE SURFACE AREA is optimally used.

    Designed by a design student and NOT by an engineer. Obviously. :slap:
