Scythe Announces Samurai ZZ CPU Cooler

Scythe extends its product portfolio by adding a new CPU Cooler for the entry level market. Samurai ZZ (Model No. SCSMZ-2000) is a top-flow CPU Cooler weighing 16.6 oz, respectively 495 g (incl. Fan), and it is equipped with 3 u-shaped Copper-Heatpipes as well as a 92 mm Fan. Supplied fan is supports the PWM-Feature which allows the fan speed being controlled in a range from 300 up to 2,500 rpm. The fan can generate airflow of 12 up to 95 m³/h, respectively 6.7 up to 55.55 CFM at a noise level between 7.2 and 31.07 dBA.

Samurai ZZ CPU Cooler is specified for cooling of CPUs with a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of up to 130 W, and it is compatible to Intel socket 478, T / LGA775, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as AMD socket 754, 939, AM2(+), AM3, 940. By using the improved V.T.M.S (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) mounting mechanism, Samurai ZZ can be easily installed within just a few minutes, which doesn't necessarily require the detachment or the removal of the motherboard. New F.P.S. (Fast-Phase Structure) technology uses the generated airflow for cooling of upper and lower heatsink structure as well as surrounding motherboard components and VRs. Samurai ZZ has the overall dimensions of 3.62 x 3.62 x 0.98 inch (W x D x H), respectively 94 x 122 x 94 mm, and it is available for a 16.75 EUR (MSRP, excl. VAT) or US$ 31.80 (MSRP, excl. TAX).

Seems like an inefficient design to me.

Perfect for those with little to no clearance for a tower HSF. It looks like they just bent it :laugh:

Still think they could do better though.... Tempted to fire up ms paint to share my schemes XD

With the cooler sticking out so far past the base, how likely is this thing to obstruct other components (RAM slots, Northbridge heatsink, etc.)?
Posted on Reply
I think it faces away from the ram, so blows over the other thing that isn't the north bridge ha ha

Also, if you have a side mounted fan on the door, this will allow you to have it there. On the old sigma case of mine, the 80mm fan is outside of the panel instead of inside, because of my Xiggy.

socket 478!!!

my p4 is begging for one!!
I think a Mugen 2 or Kabuto would be better.

I'm likin those heatpipe caps; gives it a very finished look. :cool:

Even with 6 heatpipes, I do not see it doing any better than the legendary Thermalright XP-90c from 4 years ago. The base looks rather inefficient without any heatpipes over the center. At least the base should have enclosed the heatpipes more fully, like with TRUE, Megahalems, etc..

I think those heatpipe caps could be half the height... and the heatpipe grouping could be more efficient... The ones on the sides should be higher, at least in my understanding.
