Scythe, a renowned developer of cooling solutions, introduces a new CPU cooler, entitled Iori. Due to an offbeat framework, the model is primarily targeting small-sized systems with mini-ITX and micro-ATX motherboards. It is compatible with practically all modern platforms (Intel 775/115x/1366 and AMD FM1/FM2/FM2+/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+), save for Intel LGA2011 and AMD Socket AM1. The cooler is already on free sale at the price tag of 24.50 EUR.
Scythe Iori is all about nickel-plated heatsink with a copper base, three heatpipes that pierce the plates twice, and a single 100 mm axial GlideStream 100 fan, located on the top of the framework. The latter employs a sleeve bearing and supports PWM technology. It enables the variation of rotational speeds within the ranges of 300-1800 RPM. Herein, the fan is able to produce up to 43.74 CFM at the maximal noise level of 26.7 dB.
Taking into account that all the components on the small-sized motherboards’ PCB are tightly soldered, Iori can help in solving the problem of poor airflow. Thanks to the sophisticated design, it directs the airflow not only onto the heatsink but also onto the adjacent to the CPU socket components. This provides for the optimization of thermal conditions.
Furthermore, Scythe has implemented a completely new push-pin mounting system that dramatically facilitates the cooler’s installation into every motherboard. Hence, it is a perfect choice for both, traditional PCs with mini-tower cases and multimedia systems of a pint-size.
