Scythe Orochi Ready to Meet its Competitors

Announced today in Japan and set to become widely available for purchase from 21th February, this is the third new processor cooler coming from Scythe within a month. Expected to become the most expensive Scythe cooler, the Orochi may well deserve the title "overkill" with its 10 massive heatpipes, 1155gm weight and huge dimensions: 120x194x155mm (height). On top of this beast you'll find a 140mm fan spinning at 500 rpm, which may also be mounted vertically. The Scythe Orochi is compatible with all Intel P4 478/775 and AMD Athlon64 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+ Sockets. Please visit the product page for more information.

how long before someone mods their case with this sticking out the side?
at least the case might support it then.

I have the feeling that Scythe is going to release their next cooler which will have heatpipes that run to the CPU, RAM, Northbridge, SouthBridge, MOSFETs, and GC as an all in one cooler.

It will weight just under 90 lbs. and almost fit into a standard 20 foot x 20 foot garage.
It will use 4x 16hp gasoline engine driven fans to cool the 90,000 fin plates.

The plates will be wide enough apart that you can cook a whole turkey in under an hour by placing it in the heatsink and turning off one of the fans.

But how long can your motherboard suffer under the pressure. You see they have their mobo laying flat instead of in a case lol XD.

Does it come with motherboard reinforcement brackets? Overkill if you ask me. I bet it works though.

it actually looks like a 478 retention mount in the pic, with the clips in use. the backplate would have to vary by socket, so we'd have to wait and see reviews to know.

Can it actually be bought yet? I would love to see this thing installed in a slim case, where it can hang out the side and show the world what and ugly monstrosity it is!

The Scythe Mugen like I have is 930gm so it is not much more weight, I believe Titans Amanda is ~the same weight. The GB board I have uses copper on the back plate, I will buy this when it comes out here (if it gets good reviews).

that would look hilarious. Passive cooling would be improved in that situation too, as its got direct external air.

The more I see it, the more I bet that thing would be capable of cooling at least a 172w TEC. lol.
