Scythe Kama Cross Heatsink Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
If you have ever researched a heatsink in the past, chances are you came across FrostyTech. Ever since its creation in 1999, the website has been widely viewed as an authoritative source for heatsink evaluations. FrostyTech has just posted a review of the exotic-looking Scythe Kama Cross, can it compete with the dominant heatpipe-tower coolers?
Heres what they had to say:
Ultimately, the Scythe Kama Cross heatsink is a great low noise cooling option that places at the middle of Frostytech's heatsink reference list when it comes to temperatures. The nice 100mm fan holds steady with whisper quiet operation (40 dBA), but that doesn't allow the Kama Cross from overtaking other Scythe heatsinks like the Mine Rev.B cooler. In the end, that makes the Kama Cross is a good low noise, but average heatsink for Intel and AMD processor platforms.
While this coolers performance is not amazing, it seems like a good solution for HTPCs. Particularly, because it is much shorter than modern high-end coolers, as well as being extremely quiet, which is a requirement for the aforementioned operation.
