Scythe Ashura CPU Cooler Review

Scythe may not be a manufacturer who has featured often here on Hardware Heaven however that doesn’t mean we don’t have fond memories of their products. The Shuriken for example as the answer to many of our HTPC problems in the past, allowing us to cool reasonably powerful CPUs in small form factor cases. Now Scythe are back with a new range of products and one of the newest is the Ashura tower cooler. Today we test it against a range of coolers on our socket 2011 system to find out how it might enhance our thermal performance.

Packaging and Bundle

For the Ashura Scythe uses a bright, colourful box design with a decent image of the cooler front and centre. We get plenty of information around the box sides and inside we find the cooler protected by foam with the fan in a second compartment and our bundled items in their own box.

Bundle included with the Ashura

Bundled with the cooler we get installation brackets and items for socket 775, 1155, 1156, 1366 and 2011 as well as AM2/3/FM1/2. Also included is the manual for AMD/Intel systems and some thermal paste. Scythe also bundle fan clips and a tool to assist in the install which is a nice touch.
