Katana 2 Heatpipe Quiet CPU Cooler

Scythe Katana 2 Heatpipe Quiet CPU Cooler

- Replaced by the Scythe Katana 3 Quiet CPU Cooler

Sharper than ever! The Katana is back.

The slope shaped heatsink known as Katana CPU Cooler is now back and boasts improved performance to meet the higher cooling demands for all users. Three heatpipes and the wide range of CPU socket compatibility are built-in to offer value-for-money without any compromise in the performance!

OFCS Oval Fin Contact Structure

Introducing the newly developed OFCS (Oval Fin Contact Structure) that achieves a greater contact area between the cooling fins and heatpipes, which reduces heat transfer loss. Furthermore, by adopting the sloping fins this reduces the overall width of the cooler as well as providing the ability to direct the airflow to various motherboard components simultaneously whilst cooling the CPU.

VFMS - Versatile Fan Mounting System / 100mm Fan

By adapting the VFMS fan mounting system from Scythes popular Mine CPU Cooler, the default fan (100x100x25mm) can be easily exchanged to any other standard 25mm thick fan.

Four-Way Mounting

Four-way (direction) mounting is possible. This allows you to configure and optimise the airflow direction inside your chassis without any restrictions.

Universal Socket Compatibility with AM2

The Katana 2 CPU Cooler is compatible for socket 478/754/939/940/AM2 and LGA775. All in one solution for your PC system.

Fan Control

The Katana uses a 3-pin (not a 4-pin PWM) fan so there is no default speed control. If you prefer to have control over the fan speed then we would recommend that you use a Zalman FANMATE 2 or similar fan controller, which will allow you to set your own balance between cooling and noise. Many processors simply won't need the fan running at full speed in order to keep them cool.
