Designed to deliver uncompromised performance with compact dimensions and maximum compatibility, the Kabuto 3 expands the Scythe cooler portfolio with a new top-flow model. Based on the experience with its predecessor and extensive customer feedback, the main focus points during development were an improved cooling performance and user experience as well as noise reduction. Made from nickel-plated copper, the finely polished base plate is carefully manufactured to exactly fit the heatpipes. This improves heat transfer and the overall cooling performance significantly. A 120mm PWM fan from the proven and reliable GlideStream series is included. As known from its predecessor, the top-flow design also supports the cooling of motherboard components such as the chipset, VRMs, and memory modules. The Easy Clip Mounting System allows simple, safe and fast installation.

Main Features

  • Hybrid Heatpipes - Kabuto 3 uses a hybrid system which consists of two 6 mm and three 8 mm heatpipes. The nickel-plated copper base-plate is carefully manufactured to exactly fit the heatpipes, resulting in an improved heat transfer and an overall better performance.
  • Top-Flow-Design - The downward airflow ventilates not only the heatsink fins of Kabuto 3, but also cools VRMs, memory modules, as well as other components surrounding the processor socket. This helps to prevent heat accumulation and increases the mainboards lifetime.
  • Increased compatibility - Special design as well as the improved arrangement and shape of the heatpipes of Kabuto 3 allows mounting even in compact cases. The free space between motherboard and heatsink provides excellent compatibility to large memory modules or VRM coolers.
