Scythe introduced a bench of new products this year, which were only available as concept or prototype last year, one of them is their newest CPU heatsink cooler. Named Ninja 2, this "bunch of aluminium"
has anything in house to become the new best performance/price rated CPU heatsink, the 12 heatpipes will sure come in very handy with the upcoming era of Quad Core Processing Units.
The new Orochi heatsink focuses on passive cooling, it comes with tons of heatpipes and a whole lot aluminum cooling surface. No doubt this one is the ultimate passive heatsink, but we do question the clip mounting system because this heatsink weights over 1300 grams.
Here is the original concept of the Orochi CPU cooler, no steroids used here:
CPU coolers for the masses, the Shuriken offers good performance at bottom prices.
This is new... video card cooling. AC, Thermalright, Zalman, tough competition here, but Scythe has showed us all ready that they aren't afraid to of a challenge.
The VGA heatsink comes with high compatibility:
More cooling products check the large chipset coolers which brings Scythe down to Thermalright performance, if not better:
Power supplies, not exactly something you'd suspect from Scythe. This product has been in the pipeline for quite some time, finally it’s ready for production. For now, three models are going to be launched, a 500W unit for mainstream and high-end systems, and 850W/1000W units for the utterly high-end systems and hardware enthusiasts.
Stylish external hard disk case. Branded Scythe but originally designed by the German case mod guru Benjamin Franz
, Scythe also came up with some housings designed by the same guy.
The same guy is also responsible for this first prototype of a Scythe ATX PC case:
New 120mm fans are also in the pipe-line with special fine design:
The Scythe Quiet Drive will get a cheaper brother, which aims to reduce noise and temperatures:
The Kama Connect 2 will feature better compatibility, easier to hook up and comes with pouch for 3.5” and 2.5” drives! Mushkin
First at the Cebit show, Mushkin had their own booth this year with quite a spectacle going on, a Deathmatch PC setup, overclocking sessions, and of course plenty of memory products:
We already knew Mushkin did Power Supplies, but did you know they had video cards? The 8800 GT Mushkin edition will come in reference design:
But a second version has a custom cooler and overclocked specifications: from 600/1500/900 Mushkin enhanced
the 8800GT performance up to 675/1687/950, that would make it nearly as fast as the 8800GTS 512MB.
Even stable in toughest of video applications and games!
The previously quite unknown overclocker “No_Name
” has been making a name for himself, breaking records previously held our Greek and American OC champs. He’s currently 3rd in the World OC Ranking
, but at Cebit he was even ranked 1st for a good 7 days! He gets help at the Mushkin booth from ‘Joe_cool
’, together they try to break the world Futuremark records:
With a few 300 liter tanks of LN2 they cooled down an Intel Quad Core and 2x HD3870X2 video cards several times in search for new heights, ending up 200-300 points shy of the world record.
With this chilly showing we say thank you for reading, watch out for 2nd part coverage by our 2 other reports Piotke and Massman.Update: Part 2 online!!
