Scythe Readies Susano and Yasya Cu CPU Coolers

Scythe showed off prototypes of two of its creations for the season, the Scythe Susano and Yasya Cu CPU coolers. The Susano is one of Scythe's biggest CPU coolers. Its vast aluminum fin array covers the entire upper half of the average ATX motherboard. Its design involves a heatsink-turned CPU block, from which six copper heat pipes pass. These heat pipes convey heat to a large, roughly-square aluiminum fin array on which are latched four 120 mm fans. These blow air through the aluminum fin block, and onto several parts of the motherboard, including memory, northbridge and CPU VRM. The Yasya Cu is a slightly more in tune with the times. It is a copper-based variant of the Yasya CPU cooler. It uses the tried and tested tower design, and makes use of copper fins with a turbulent shape. Heat is conveyed to these fins using six copper heat pipes. Scythe did not give out a release date for these coolers.

I want that Susano on my X6800 ! It looks interesting enough to own :)

Guys, we posted our own pictures of both coolers. To be perfectly clear:

BOTH WILL NEVER REACH RETAIL!! THEY ARE JUST THERE FOR THE JOY OF VIEWING. The Yasaya will be available with aluminum fins and copper heat pipes. The all Cu version WILL NOT be available in retail. The Susano would cost around 90-100 USD Dollars and thus will not be made in retail either.

That 4x120mm one would hardly work in any setup anyway. 240mm=~10". Full ATX standard is 12"x9.6" You do the math.

How the feck are ya supposed to get your hands under it to fix it on?:confused:
You'd install it upside down like the GeminII.

The same people make this monstrosity.

Erm.....


Not at all :laugh:


The gas in heatpipes moves at the speed of sound!

Long heatpipes get the heat further away from the CPU quicker.

The best coolers I've owned have HUGE long heatpipes.

The thing about the Gemini is some people got epic performance out of it, forum member r9 (I think its r9) has one of the highest air overclocked e5200s out of anyone.

Guess they're more susceptible to the crazy world of thermal dynamics then other coolers or something.
Yes it's a great cooler. It's even good with no fans on it too.

I would of thought longer pipes would mean more gas = more heat transfer.

Is there any kind of supporting system for the large one? It looks like it'd severely bend or snap any motherboard its attached to D:

I would say it's actually lighter than the Megahalems. Aside from the heatpipes there actually isn't THAT much metal.

Heatpipes are usally filled with some amount of alcohol iirc.
Alcohol has a low boiling point. As the cpu heats up, all that heat energy gets spent boiling the alcohol (or whatever liquid).
Since it's gas form weighs less, the gas flows away from the liquid, to the other end of heatpipe, where it "dumps heat" into the fins and becomes liquid. Getting it back to the beginning is usually done with what everyone calls a "wick"
It's actually a very porous inner surface inside the heatpipe.
That porous surface perturbs air, thus slowing it down. This is why long heatpipes aren't necessarily better.
For very long heatpipes, the further the pipe is away from heat source (read: cpu) the less heat it gets from the gas inside, the less effective it is at the end.

So, in essence, long heatpipes aren't bad, as long as the fins start right where they leave the cpu's surface.

Also, cheaper heatpipes = less alcohol, or leaks, or possibly no liquid.
If it even is alcohol, don't take my word for it though.

This information brought to you by Necrofire, who did the few hours of internet research and cut a heatpipe open from curiosity.


Sweet coolers none the less, I'd take the all copper one though, that other one CAN'T be quiet.

Hey necro you get different types of heatpipe, some have some kinda presurised gas, some even just have distilled water, some are lined with wicking some not etc etc.


Also how with even with your explanation did you work out that that longer pipes absorb less heat, the base is still on the CPU, the gas still travels to the ends of the pipes dissipating heat, it then falls all the way back to the start ( the cpu, i.e the heat source)


It's why heatpipes are so super effective!

Hi
Regarding lenght of heatpipes. Here some info from the makaers of them.

For short: Evaporation and condensation inside the heatpipe will take place
between to locations as near as the temp differs for it to condensate or boil.

Not dependant of lenght only temp.And fast as f.......

Check the part and Click "CRS Heat Pipes" for info in header.

http://www.heat-pipes.co.uk/index.php?sectionid=4

Power more dependant of "diameter of pipe" AND "position to gravity"
