Scythe announced the SCIOR-1000 CPU cooler in Japan. The mid-range cooler features an aluminium fin stack that's arranged along the plane of the motherboard, fed by three 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that draw heat from a nickel-plated copper base. The fin-stack is ventilated by an unusual 100 mm PWM-controlled fan that spins between 300 and 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 43.74 CFM of air. Measuring 107 mm x 136 mm x 117 mm (WxDxH), the cooler weighs about 400 g. It supports most modern CPU socket types. Slated for 26th December, the SCIOR-1000 is expected to be priced at 3,480¥ (US $33).
