Scythe had a large booth this year marking their presence at the Cebit trade show;
Those who loved the Scythe Ninja’s passive (low CFM) cooling capabilities, but ran into size problems will be happy to learn that a HTPC friendly version will be released soon:
While not a retail product yet, another Ninja variant had a water tube running through the heatsink design, wonder what the performance of that one will be?
The Infinity was shown at max potential with no less than 4 fans mounted, while Scythe originally shipped the Infinity with only 1 fan clip, they might plan to include several in the future as demand for more clips was quite high:
Two brand new coolers were shown too, both are ready for retail and we already have them tested in our P4 setup; first up is the Katana 2, which features more heat pipes and a larger 100mm fan:
The second look like V8 engine and also features the same 100mm fan, which delivers a very good performance/noise balance; The Kama Cross has a plug and play universal mounting kit like the Infinity, Katana 2 and other recent Scythe heatsinks.
We’ve been waiting for a Scythe PSU in Europe for several years now, but Scythe assured us they are close to completion; low noise and high efficiency will be the main features of their unit:
The HDD silencer/cooler will ge an update too, the Quiet Drive 2 is still in design/prototype phase but looks to offer an even better drive muffling capability:
The Quiet Drive for 2.5” is ready for resale and follows the design of the larger 3.5” model:
Having nothing to do with cooling what so ever, Scythe had a hand crafted speaker set at their booth, with plans to “maybe” make a commercial version:
