Scythe Grand Kama Cross 3 CPU Cooler
The Grand Kama Cross 3 with its eye-catching design (a common feature to the whole Grand Kama Cross series) stands out among Top-Blow coolers. The unique design conveys additional benefits, such as excellent memory compatibility and simultaneous cooling of chipset and VRMs. New to the third model are two 8mm heatpipes.
The Grand Kama Cross 3 with its eye-catching design (a common feature to the whole Grand Kama Cross series) stands out among Top-Blow coolers. The unique design conveys additional benefits, such as excellent memory compatibility and simultaneous cooling of chipset and VRMs. New to the third model are two 8mm heatpipes. The increased heatpipe diameter results in significantly better heat transfer from the base plate to the cooling fins. Together with further performance-optimizing improvements, Grand Kama Cross 3 has become the most powerful as well as the most silent cooler of the Grand Kama Cross family.
Improved cooling performance
By replacing two 6 mm with 8 mm heatpipes cooling performance increases tremendously. Special emphasis was put on efficient heat transfer between heatpipes and the base plate to further push performance limits and to unleash Grand Kama Cross’ full potential.
The unique design of the Grand Kama Cross 3 supports mounting of large heatsink memory modules or large VRM / chipset-heatsinks without interference. It even provides simultaneous cooling for these CPU surrounding components.
For the cooling fins, a turbulence minimizing saw tooth profile is used. This results in lower operating noise at higher fan rpm ranges. In addition, less air resistance optimizes the cooling capacity.
GlideStream 140 PWM
The supplied fan is a customized version of the Scythe GlideStream model, adapted to the Grand Kama Cross 3. It runs at a lower minimum speed and provides, in combination with the heat fin profile, less flow noise.
