In 2002, an Akihabara startup in Tokyo went into heatsink production. 4 years later today, almost every PC enthusiast know of their products. Scythe Co., Ltd. Japan has evolved from being known as the maker of the Kamakaze heatsink to being synonymous with monster overclocking tools like the Ninja (which was reviewed by floppy a while back and rated as the best heatsink at the time of writing).
Scythes are agricultural tools for harvesting produce with stalks. As a PC enthusiast, it symbolises the harvesting of extra overclocks and the weeding out of heat and noise that are detrimental to the computing experience. Of course, Scythe isn’t famous for what it is today by sheer marketing alone. Just look at the number of Ninja users in our Eskimo Party Overclocking Competition, which bears testament to the quality and performance of their products.

“Our 1337 5ki||z make overclocking a piece of cake!”
Whether the Infinity shall continue the legacy of the Ninja shall be explored in this review, thanks to floppy’s beautiful pictures and extensive tests!
