Scythe Kabuto 2 High-end Top Flow Quiet CPU Cooler

- Replaced by the Scythe Kabuto 3 Top Down CPU Cooler

Scythe's latest top down CPU cooler, the Kabuto 2 offers exceptional performance and broad compatibility.

The Kabuto II is a top-flow cooler fitted with a unique "reinforcement bar" to improve structural stability resulting in uniform heatpipe alignment contributing to higher cooling performance. It is fitted with the all-new Scythe GlideStream PWM 120mm fan with rubber inlays that absorb any fan vibrations. The Kabuto II also comes with the "new-generation-clip-system" for easy mounting.


  1. High performance top down CPU cooler
  2. Cool motherboard components as well as CPU
  3. Reinforcement bar to maintain cooling
  4. Extremely quiet, thanks to 120mm GlideStream PWM fan
  5. Compatible with Intel LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2

High Performance with Top-Mount Fan

The Kabuto II is a top-flow cooler. The layout of this structure makes it possible to not only cool the CPU, but at the same time ensures that components such as the motherboard chipsets and MOS-FETs on VR modules are also actively kept cool.

Unique Reinforcement Bar

The Kabuto II is fitted with a reinforcement bar providing improved structural strength to maintain uniform heat pipe alignment which achieves even better cooling performance.


Just like other Scythe products, the Kabuto II, has maximum compatibility. All current sockets are supported. Furthermore, a new generation one-touch clip system (introduced with Katana 4) is excelling in user friendliness and durability.
