Default Scythe Samurai Intel-AMD HSF Review

Today we´ll be looking at a Japanese engineered 3-in-1 CPU cooler, it has support for all popular sockets out there (754,940,939,370,478,462), features easy installation and a speed adjustable fan. Let´s find out how it stacks up against other popular heatsinks.

I'm glad to hear that the additional washers may resolve the mounting problem. They should have sent in Beta units; the guru in [M] may be of help.

Did you make the banner? It looks COOL.

great review.

"Socket 754

Piotke installed the Samurai on his A64 setup and compared it to the current reigning champ, the Thermalright SLK-948U. The Thermalright was equipped with a low noise Papst fan, the 8412 n2gm to be exact. It spins at 2700rpm, which places it between the Samurai’s fan High and Low setting."

why didn't you use the same fan for both heatsinks, IMO every heatsink test is worthless if the same fan is not used :/
