Scythe announces the Kodati Rev.B, a new HSF designed as a replacement for the AMD Socket AM1 stock cooler.The Kodati Rev.B promises better performance and lower noise, but can just as well be used on most other AMD or Intel platforms:
Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces a new revision of its Kodati CPU Cooler. Scythe is one of the first manufacturers to announce a special solution to the market for the socket AM1 (FS1b). Users have finally the chance to exchange the stock AM1 CPU cooler against the much more powerful Kodati Rev. B. The new revision furthermore inherits the socket support to the common sockets from AMD™ and Intel™, which is very typical for Scythe products.
Scythe Kodati CPU Cooler aims specifically at the HTPC and Mini-ITX market, where size and weight is crucial. Thanks to its total heights of mere 34 millimeters and weight of 180 grams, Kodati Rev. B CPU cooler is able to fit to basically every compact system. This has been achieved by implementing the Stealth Fan Mounting Structure (S.F.M.S), where the pre-installed fan is located between the aluminum fin-structure and copper-baseplate. Fast heat dissipation is assured thanks to the two copper-heatpipes with 6 mm thickness. Users are able to control the supplied 80 mm fan in the range between 800 and 3.300 RPM thanks to the PWM support. The airflow varies between 10,2 and 42,2 m3/h (6,0~24,82 CFM), depending on the fan speed. The specified noise level during operation starts at inaudible 8,2 dBA and goes up to merely audible 32,5 dBA.
The socket compatibility list features AM1(FS1b), AM2+, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+ from AMD™ as well as sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA 1155 and LGA1156 from Intel™. Scythe utilizes the Easy Installation with Screw (E.I.S) mounting system for Kodati Rev. B, which allows easy and solid screw-based mounting without the need of back-plates. All mounting clips as well as thermal grease and a manual are supplied with the Kodati CPU Cooler.
Scythe Kodati Rev. B (Model No. SCKDT-1100) CPU Cooler is available as of today. Suggested retail price is set at 19,70 EUR (excl. Taxes).
