Scythe Ashura Universal CPU Cooler
User-friendliness and a compact heatsink design while not sacrificing efficient cooling performance - pursuing this goal, Scythe engineers set out to develop the Ashura. The result is a CPU cooler shining with wide-spread compatibility to most current motherboard sockets while minimizing the risk of memory modules with tall heat sinks colliding with the Ashura.
User-friendliness and a compact heatsink design while not sacrificing efficient cooling performance - pursuing this goal, Scythe engineers set out to develop the Ashura. The result is a CPU cooler shining with wide-spread compatibility to most current motherboard sockets while minimizing the risk of memory modules with tall heat sinks colliding with the Ashura. Its' from the ground-up newly developed mounting system realizes easy but reliable mounting to the majority of today's current, mainstream CPU sockets.Teamed up with the 140mm GlideStream fan sporting a max air flow of 165 m³/h makes the Ashura suitable for quiet as well as performance cooling, and can also be counted on as a reliable partner when overclocking is on the agenda.
The asymmetrical layout of the base plate allows the Ashura to be mounted in various clearances to the memory modules, making the usage of memory modules with tall heatsinks possible. Compatibility to various sockets and motherboards is increased, and user-friendly, simple installation of the Ashura is realized.
When developing the Ashura, the possibility for mounting a second fan was incorporated. The necessary spare pair of fan clips is therefore part of the accessory list. With a second fan helping, cooling performance can be further enhanced by applying the push & pull principal (The extra fan has to be purchased separately).
Newly Developed Mounting System
Another new feature can be seen is the Ashura's new mounting system. Based on the over-the-years experience of CPU cooler mounting systems and Scythe expertise, the Ashura mounting was designed with the keywords "simplicity" and "reliability" in mind.
GlideStream 140 PWM
The 140mm GlideStream PWM covers all areas of cooling. Able to work both very quietly as well as with max cooling performance, it forms a perfect team with the new Ashura CPU cooler.
