    Yet to be released worldwide, the Kabuto CPU cooler by Scythe made an appearance on the company's Japanese website. It is designed to be a high performance stock-cooler replacement for Intel sockets x478, LGA-775, and LGA-1366. All AMD desktop sockets since s754 are supported.

    Measuring 124 mm (l) x 133 mm (w) x 132 mm (h), the cooler seems like a complex work of metal: A CPU contact block doubles up as a small heatsink. From it, arise six copper heatpipes. The heatpipes, in groups of two, convey heat to three independent aluminum fin stacks. A 120 mm PWM-controlled fan, operating at speeds of around 1300 rpm blows air onto the three fin stacks. At those speeds, its noise levels remain around 26.5dBA. The cooler tips the scales at 730 g (around 1.6 lbs). It remains to be seen when Scythe announces this cooler worldwide.

    Aluminum base leading to some nice copper heat pipes. Why do they always do this? Stop using aluminum bases FFS! If it costs extra then charge extra!

    That's what you get for calling it Kabuto.

    Wait until the Naruto model comes out: then you'll see ...

    The base must be copper .
    Most cooper bases are covered with a layer of chrome , so to become non corrosive .

    I'd venture to say the base is copper with the usual nickel-plating to avoid oxidation. Scythe has been doing this for a while now. Nothing new...
