Scythe Grand Kama Cross 3 CPU Cooler Review

Scythe is really known for their air CPU Coolers, and we’ve tested a good handful over the past couple of years. Today we are checking out their Grand Kama Cross 3, which has a very unique design. While the design is a little unconventional, it might actually turn out to be a very effective cooler. The unique design is what Scythe calls their X-Struktur design that makes use of two large heatsinks, 4 large 8mm-thick copper heatpipes, and a 140 mm GlideStream 140 PWM fan. Let’s see what the Grand Kama Cross 3 can do!

Special thanks to Scythe for providing us with the Grand Kama Cross 3 CPU Cooler to review.
