Scythe Katana 3 “Type A” (SCKTN-3000A)

Scythe has unveiled 2 new “basic” CPU coolers based on the Katana 3 released in March 2009. Both coolers, measuring 94 x 108 x 143mm and weighing 495g, are similar in specifications and performance with the exception of their mounting systems. The Katana 3 “Type A” (SCKTN-3000A) is compatible with AMD 754, 939, 940, AM2(+), AM3 sockets while “Type I” (SCKTN-3000I) is compatible with Intel LGA 775, 1156 and 1366 sockets.

Scythe has unveiled 2 new “basic” CPU coolers based on the Katana 3
released in March 2009. Both coolers, measuring 94 x 108 x 143mm and
weighing 495g, are similar in specifications and performance with the
exception of their mounting systems. The Katana 3 “Type A” (SCKTN-3000A) is compatible with AMD 754, 939, 940, AM2(+), AM3 sockets while “Type I” (SCKTN-3000I) is compatible with Intel LGA 775, 1156 and 1366 sockets.

Featuring nickel-plated copper bases, both coolers have 6 slanted
copper heat pipes (Slant Pipe Structure design) and have cooling fins
on the baseplate. Bundled with a 92mm Scythe PWM fan running at speeds
of 300 to 2,500 RPM depending on the actual CPU load, the Katana 3 CPU
coolers are pretty silent during operation.

The Katana 3 “Type A” (SCKTN-3000A) and “Type I” (SCKTN-3000I) is
retailing in Europe now at a MSRP of 14.75 EUR (excludes VAT) or 28.00
USD (excludes TAX) respectively.

Features:

Easy installation without any tools

  • The smart and patent-pending mounting mechanism “VTMS” (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) allows mounting of Katana 3 CPU heatsink without using tools.

S.P.S. (Slant Pipe Structure)

  • Already developed with the first Katana, the slightly curved shape of the Katana 3 allows both the direct heat transfer from the cooling fins of the cooler as well as an additional cooling of the mainboard components.


F.P.S. (Fast-Phase Structure)

  • The various cooling fins on the baseplate allow an additional heat dissipation and optimize the overall performance of the cooler without changing the compact dimensions of the entire system.
