Scythe has just unveiled their new compact top-flow lori CPU cooler. This cooler was specifically developed for Mini- and Micro-ATX systems. This is a universal cooler so it supports both AMD and Intel platforms. Scythe has also improved the push-pin mounting mechanism allowing for fast heatsink mounting on virtually every motherboard.
The official dimensions of the cooler are 107 x 92 x 136 mm and it weighs in at only 400 grams. The heatsink itself is made up of aluminum, but makes use of three 6 mm copper heatpipes, which cross the heatsink twice.
Helping with cooling is the top-mounted 100 mm PWM axial fan, which has speeds from 300 to 1800 RPM. The fan has the typical 92mm mounting holes. Since this cooler has a top-flow design it also helps cool surrounding components such as chipset, memory and voltage regulator modules.
The Iori CPU Cooler supports the Intel sockets LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 and LGA775 as well as AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. All required mounting clips, as well as the user manual and thermal grease are supplied in the Iori package.
Scythe Iori CPU Cooler (Model no. SCIOR-1000) is available as of today, whereas the suggested retail price is 24,50 EUR (excl. Taxes).
