Scythe Shogun Low Noise Heatsink
The Scythe Shogun is a large low noise heatsink built around a fairly recent heatpipe technologies. It works quietly enough to be a welcome replacement for computers using the stock Intel Pentium 4 or Athlon64 heatsinks, its large size and large fan efficiently move a large volume of air slowly through the many cooling fins.

As quiet as the Scythe Shogun is, the heatsink is cursed by a set of mounting mechanisms that are complicated and unwieldy to install. The mounting plates rely on a bevy of flanges attached to brackets, with screws and fixtures that are frustrating to access in the cramped confines of a case. It should really take no more than a set of screws or snap clips, so it's an unfortunate predicament because the Scythe Shogun heatsink shows great promise at maintaining low operating temperatures with moderate noise levels.
