Japanese cooling manufacturer Scythe made a bold statement in the announcement of the new twin-tower Scythe FUMA CPU cooler. FUMA means “immortality” in Japanese and the new cooler appears to be built to live up to the name. Six copper heatpipes distribute heat from the base to two aluminum fin stacks with clearance-conscious design and the entire heatsink is nickel plated for resilience against wear and tear through the ages.
The Scythe FUMA supports up to three 120mm fans and is in fact bundled with a pair of Scythe Slipstream PWM 120 fans with an RPM range of 300 up to 1,400 depending on the load. Even with both fans installed, the Scythe FUMA only weighs 920 grams and secured with a widely compatible high-precision mounting mechanism that is compatible with AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+ from AMD™ as well as sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA2011 and 2011(-v3) motherboards from Intel.
The Scythe Fuma CPU Cooler (Model No. SCFM-1000) is available with a suggested retail price is set at 39.00 EUR excl. Taxes (~$42 USD).
