The evolving PC market moves towards yet smaller and faster Computers. Scythe reacts to the trend and offers a compact Top-Flow CPU Cooler, which is especially developed for Mini- and Micro-ATX systems. Iori supports the latest platforms of both AMD® and Intel®. But it gets even better: Thanks to the low-weight of the heatsink, an improved version of the Push-Pin mounting mechanism has been used, allowing fast heatsink mounting on virtually every motherboard.
In spite of its compact dimensions of 107 x 92 x 136 mm and its low heatsink weight of only 400 grams, Scythe Iori is able to cool latest CPUs from both Intel® and AMD®. Scythe achieved this by utilizing three 6 mm copper-heatpipes, which are crossing the heatsink twice, and the use of a custom-made PWM axial-fan. Fan speed of the supplied 100-millimeter model can be controlled by the motherboard thanks to the PWM-function between 300 and 1.800 RPM. Hence allows the fan to move between 7,3 and 43,74 cubic feet per minute (12,4 ~ 74,3m³/h) at a low noise level between 4,5 and 26,7 dBA. The custom-made axial-fan is equipped with common 92 mm mounting holes.
The fact, that the Iori CPU Cooler is a compact and low-weight solution with a really convenient mounting system, makes it a perfect CPU Cooler for both Gaming and Home-Theatre-PCs. Being a Top-Flow Cooler, Scythe Iori is able to use the airflow of the 100-millimeter fan to additionally cool surrounding components such as chipset, memory and voltage regulator modules.
Compatibility to a big variety of sockets has always been a strong point of Scythe CPU Coolers. The Iori CPU Cooler supports the Intel® sockets LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 and LGA775 as well as AMD® sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. All required mounting clips, as well as the user manual and thermal grease are supplied in the Iori package.
Scythe Iori CPU Cooler (Model no. SCIOR-1000) is available as of today, whereas the suggested retail price is 24,50 EUR (excl. Taxes).
