If you take a look at the processor compatibility list, you realize that pretty much every of today's CPUs is supported - and that at no additional cost for mounting kits or similar things.

Packaging

This is one of the biggest coolers on the market. To give you an idea how big it is we put a Socket775 CPU on top of it.


The cooler's base plate is protected by a transparent blue plastic foil which is easily removed. This ensures that you receive an absolutely perfect shiny contact surface.
You can see that Scythe is paying a lot of attention to the contact area. It is very flat and perfectly smooth.


Five copper heatpipes are used to transport heat away from the CPU to the heatsink fins.
