Scythe Katana III CPU Cooler #SCKTN-3000


Scythe KATANA3 3Heat Pipes CPU Cooler #SCKTN-3000

Katana is the name not only for the famous Japanese samurai sword but also for the well-known cooler series by Scythe. With Katana 3, Scythe presents now a cooler which is based on technologies, which have been developed and optimized over the years. Due to the slightly curved structure of the Katana 3, the silent 92 mm PWM fan is not only used for the removal of heat from the CPU but also to cool down sensitive components on the motherboard.

Model Name: KATANA 3
Model #: SCKTN-3000
Manufacturer: Scythe Co., Ltd. Japan

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. (Pipe Slant 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.
