Kotetsu Quiet CPU Cooler

Scythe Kotetsu Quiet CPU Cooler

The Kotetsu is a 120mm tower CPU cooler that provides excellent cooling at extremely low noise levels considering its compact size.

Features

  1. Features, M.A.P.S. fin design for excellent performance
  2. Exceptionally quiet, from only 5.3 dBA
  3. Equipped with reliable Glidestream Series fan
  4. Intel and AMD compatible

At first glance, the Kotetsu might seem like a “mini Ashura” - a fact which visually can hardly be denied. When looking at the fundamental concept, however, the two similar looking coolers couldn’t be more different. The Kotetsu is tailored towards users on a little tighter budget: It has four heatpipes, for airflow a 120mm GlideStream PWM is in charge - for the heat dissipation level of the Haswell processors this combination is more than efficient, cooling performance will not disappoint. Despite being a budget-priced cooler, the Kotetsu is fitted with the latest H.P.M.S. (Hyper Precision Mounting System), and makes use of the “Narrow Fin” design.

M.A.P.S

The new Kotetsu also draws on the highly proven M.A.P.S. already having shown excellent results with the Mugen 3. Thanks to the optimised arrangement of the fins, pass-through airflow inside the heatsink is ramped up, leading to even better cooling performance.

Newly Developed Mounting System

Another new feature can be seen is the Kotetsu’s new mounting system. Based on the over-the-years experience of CPU cooler mounting systems and Scythe expertise, the Kotetsu mounting was designed with the keywords “simplicity” and “reliability” in mind.

GlideStream 120 PWM

The supplied new Glide Stream 120 PWM fan with its’ unique blade design is automatically controlled by the motherboard’s PWM function, the temperature adjusts to the CPU.


Review

  • Silentpcreview.com

    “The Kotetsu is a complete package, excelling in every area. The stock fan, typical of Scythe heatsinks, not only performs well but has an excellent sound that rivals any current out-of-the-box cooling solution. The mounting system is easy to put together and very secure.”
