    In addition to the Mugen 2, Scythe announced second-generation Grand Kama Cross CPU cooler. Grand Kama Cross 2 (model: SCKC-3000) retains the unique top-flow design of its predecessor, which uses two large aluminum fin stacks arranged along inclines in opposite directions, which are ventilated by a fan from an angle, ensuring high turbulence, and with it, heat dissipation.

    With Grand Kama Cross 2, Scythe redesigned the fins to line up straight under the fan's air flow, so air is guided into the stack, and not repelled. The fins later cut an angle, increasing turbulence, improving heat dissipation. Heat from the CPU is drawn by a nickel-plated copper base, from which four copper heat pipes convey it to the two fin stacks. A 140 mm Scythe Falcon PWM fan handles air-flow. It spins at speeds ranging from 500 to 1,300 RPM, pushing 37.37 to an impressive 97.18 CFM of air. Like the Mugen 4, this cooler comes with HPMS, a new retention system that takes fewer steps to install, and supports the new LGA1150 CPU socket. Slated for April 24, it is priced at 4,980¥ (US $50).

    You can always rely on Scythe to come up with ridiculous cooling designs! :eek:

    While these angled heatpipe HSFs may look interesting they never perform well because the fan pressure is at an angle to the fins and the flow thru the fins is thus very poor as is the actual HSF performance. That won't stop the technically challenged from buying them and Scythe knows this so that is why they sell these poor HSF designs.

    Easy now, that's not entirely true. Scythe is one of the best in "fanless" type H/S.
    They lend their tech more towards silent approach.
    My own skt478 Ninja is still semi fanless, and was even cooling into "H2O" territory with the Q6700, many here watch'd it closely way back in the day and even mussels,lemonadesoda and others told me it's not worht the cost to go water for the delta I'd gain.

    So for a quiet, and cool soloution, HTPC fanless even they are a force to recon with.
