Scythe Byakko CPU Cooler ReviewPosted on 2017-04-27 15:04:22 by Thomas De Maesschalck
"Today we have a new air CPU cooler on the test bench today. It comes from Scythe who we know for some pretty impressive CPU coolers in the past. The cooler is the Byakko, which means "White Tiger" in Japanese. The Byakko is designed for ultimate compatibility in all systems as it has a height of only 130 mm. It is your typical tower cooler with three 6 mm heatpipes and a 92 mm fan. The cooler supports all major sockets from Intel and AMD, but does lack support for Intel's LGA2011 socket. This is likely because this cooler is not really designed to cool HEDT processors. Could this be a good replacement for your stock CPU cooler? Read on as we find out!"
