    The Japanese manufacturer Scythe Co. Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) officially announces the availability of new low profile Top-Flow CPU Cooler Kozuti. Unlike regular coolers, the fan is positioned below the fins, reducing the total height of the cooler significantly.

    The Kozuti CPU Cooler is equipped with a total of three 6mm heat pipes. Applying the newly developed S.F.M.S (Stealth Fan Mounting Structure) the heatpipes are arranged in a low profile oval structure. This enables to provide space for the 80 x 80 x 10mm fanmotor in between the oval structure and below the fins, making it merely 40mm in height. This positions the cooler to be our most compact and slim cooler fit for HTPCs and slim chassis systems. Active cooling is achieved by the 80 x 80 x 10 mm slim fan the speed of 800 rpm (± 30%) - 3.300 rpm (± 10%), generating an air flow of 6.0 CFM ~ 24.82CFM = 10.2 m³ / h ~ 42.2 m³ / h at a noise level of 8.2 ~ 32.5 dBA.

    Due to it’s light weight, E.I.S. (Easy Installation with Screw system) has been applied. This omits the backplate which makes the installation more simple and convenient also achieving higher compatibility with many ITX motherboards with components on the back side of the PCB, making it an ideal solution for small footprint motherboards.

    The Scythe Kozuti CPU Cooler is now available in stores at a price of 22.90 EUR excluding VAT.

    Does it blow or suck?

    It's pulling the air based on how the fan is placed in these pictures. Interesting design though. It's made in a similar way as Scythe Shuriken, just with fan placed underneath the fins and with fins on 2 sides of the heatpipes. Shuriken only had them contacting heatpipes from top.
    Big Shuriken had 1 extra heatpipe but the problem there was that heatpipes were touchding the fins only from one side and because the way how fins were attached to heatpipes and because of the number of heatpipes, the airflow through the fins was very poor.
    The cooler was very low and rather silent but had crappy cooling performance on my Core i7 920. Thermalright AXP-140 is much better in this regard. Slightly higher and more expensive but it's just as silent and performs significantly better. Works easily with Core i7 920 overclocked to 3,3GHz.

    Still, i see Kozuti as excellent option for microATX and ITX builds with Core i3 and lower end i5 class CPU's. It should work great with these. Plus it's very low so it will fit almost anywhere.

    There needs to be more design innovation like this. I like it.

    They should have released this before I got a big shuriken... Looks damn good for a small case like a Sugo SG05...

    actually its just moving the fan from top to down, no new idea
    just i wonder since the gap between the fan and the board is close, it may create dead airflow or maybe turbulence underneath the hsf
    the good news maybe we have another low profile hsf to choose

    is good but incomplete, they need to put another fan on the top to push-pull config. then can work fine.

    I'm not sure if the fan, mounted like that, is a good idea.
    I mean most likely you need such a low profile heatsink in builds where there is something directly above the socket limiting the space for the heatsink. That something often is the power supply. And PSUs tends to have their fan mounted to pull air out of the case. So that would mean that in this particular case you would have the PSU fan pulling air from the top while the heatsink's fan is trying the same thing from below the fins.
    Maybe for people with such a setup it would be a good idea to flip the heatsink fan around, so it would be become a push-pull setup. ;)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought turbulence was a good thing.

    Mine has a larger surface area :p
    The fan is only 2200 RPMs though >_>

    All coolers, except those that blow air to the rear exhaust fan of the pc, either push air through the heatsink or pull air through the heatsink and will move air towards the motherboard in both cases. If the "problem" you described was such a big deal, all stock and entry level coolers would have had a different design (because those coolers are used the most in the world and thus matter a lot to manufacturers).
