Scythe launches Katana 5 processor cooler with asymmetrical design




Scythe has released a new version of its Katana processor cooler. The fifth iteration has an asymmetrical design and is slightly lower with 135mm than its predecessor. The cooler is supplied with a new Kaze Flex 92mm pwm fan.

According to Scythe, the new 92mm fan is quieter and the service life is longer, while the air movement has remained the same as the predecessor. The fan runs at a speed between 300 and 2300rpm and that speed is regulated via the pwm connection. Rubber spacers must limit vibrations.

Scythe equips the Katana 5 with the second generation of its Easy Clip Mounting System. The fastening system comes with accessories for all common sockets from AMD and Intel. The cooler is mounted in the box with a pushpin clip for Intel systems. To install the cooler on an AMD processor, users can use another supplied clip.

Due to the asymmetrical design, the cooler must be easier to place in small systems because there is room for memory strips under the cooling block. The cooler is 7mm lower than the Katana 4 version, which has been on sale since 2012. Several webshops have already included the Katana 5 in their assortment, for prices from about 26 euros.
