    With the Katana Cu Scythe has delivered a very solid all copper cooler that has excellent cooling performance. It uses a 92mm fan with an integrated fan speed controller. When the fan speed is turned all the way down the noise is reduced to an inaudible 30% of full speed, yet temperatures under load are only increased by 3°C.

    seems like a good fan, although can I recommend that in the next review of a heatsink, you also put zalman coolers in the temperature charts (eg: zalman cnps7700-alcu/cu)

    problem is the "pretty shiney" fans are more expensive and often louder then the stock plack ones.
