Scythe Intros Choten Top-Flow CPU Cooler
Scythe introduces the Choten CPU cooler with a top-flow design that pushes air down towards the motherboard offering effective cooling to the CPU and surrounding critical components around the CPU socket. The Scythe Choten cooler has a 120mm height offering compatibility to a wider selection of desktop cases. The Choten cooler also offers unrestricted compatibility with memory modules with its 0% obstruction on the motherboard DIMM slots.
The Scythe Choten CPU cooler comes bundled with a single high-performance Scythe Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan with a fan speed of 300 to 1200 RPM + 10%. The Scythe Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan offers a very silent operation at 4 to 24.9 dBA and a long-lasting lifespan of 120000 hours. The Choten CPU cooler has a solid copper baseplate and four 6mm copper heat pipes. Both the baseplate and heat pipes are nickel plated to prevent corrosion and a shiny finish. The aluminium heat sink and fins are aligned to the baseplate to direct air towards the CPU and motherboard along with the surrounding components.
The Scythe Choten CPU cooler comes with the Easy Clip Mounting System (E.C.M.S. II) for both the Intel and AMD sockets. It is a fast and simple mounting process that doesn’t require any tools. The pre-installed clips for Intel sockets use the same push-pin design as the stock Intel coolers. The AMD mounting clip, on the other hand, utilizes the original AMD retention modules pre-installed on AMD motherboards. The list of compatible CPU Sockets features the Intel sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as the AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+, and AM4. The product package includes the mounting clips, thermal grease, and a multi-lingual installation guide.
