Scythe Katana 5 Quiet CPU Cooler

The Scythe Katana is back (again) with a new, more efficient design thanks to the second generation of the Easy Clip Mounting System (E.C.M.S).

Features

  1. Quiet 92mm PWM fan, from 7.2 dB(A)
  2. Fan speed: 300 - 2300 RPM ±10% from only 7.3 dBA
  3. Improved cooling efficiency
  4. Easy to install, no tools required
  5. Compatible with Intel: LGA1366/115x/775 and AMD: FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2/AM4

The fifth generation of the popular Katana CPU cooler comes with a revamped asymmetric heatsink design with a total height of only 135 mm, offering unrestricted compatibility to mainboards and memory modules. The second generation of the Easy Clip Mounting System (E.C.M.S) assures a fast and easy installation process. The Intel clip is already assembled but can be switched out with only a few steps. Another key innovation of the Katana 5 is the newly developed Kaze Flex 92 PWM fan. It combines the high-quality Sealed Precision Fluid Dynamic Bearing with anti-vibration rubber spacers for quiet operation and long life-span of 120,000 hours MTTF.

Easy Clip Mounting System II

The Katana 5 CPU Cooler features the E.C.M.S II (Easy Clip Mounting System II) mounting system that supports AMD’s latest AM4 socket as well as a variety of other Intel and AMD sockets. The user-friendly Intel push-pin mounting is already pre installed, but can be replaced with the simple one-clip solution for AMD in a few simple steps.

92mm Kaze Flex PWM Fan

The new 92mm Kaze Flex PWM fan utilises a self contained Sealed Fluid Dynamic Bearing (Sealed Precision FDB) for quieter, more reliable operation with a extremely long lifespan of over 120 000 hours. The corners of the fan frame are covered with spacers made of rubber to prevent the transmission of vibration as well as reducing undesired operating noise.

Compatibility

The Katana 5 CPU Cooler is a compact cooling solution that offers the best possible performance in a confined space. The offset design of the heatsink is designed to provide 100% compatibility with motherboard components and memory slots.

High Quality Structure

The Katana 5 CPU Cooler is also equipped with a high quality, nickel-plated copper base plate, as well as three perfectly fitted nickel-plated 6mm heatpipes to ensure maximum heat conduction.

Have bought, did buy, will buy again…

I love Quiet PC: Back-in-the-day (2005-2006) when I built my first serious WinXP 'pooter, Quiet PC was THE place to get those truly UNexciting things like fans / quality interconnects / hard drive silencers / etc....you know, those bits that are vital - but that don't necessarily make the same impact as a new monitor/CPU/mobo etc. Later, as third-party parts e.g. Asus mobo-fan on the Northbridge Chipset failed, and Quiet PC again came-up with the goods (2007). In that instance, a small and discrete passive thermal heatsink together with a nice small but quiet & efficient fan to cool said heatsink more than did the job. Moving on, and laptops became commonplace, but boy...! Didn't we push the technology! Once again Quiet PC to the rescue, with a range of lappy coolers that weren't the cheapest on the net, but were certainly the most efficient - and Quiet!! I still use my Zalman ZM-NC1000 (2010). Latest purchase (2014), another lappy cooler - perhaps unnecessary as the Samsung Win7 lappy is actually capable of cooling itself, even under duress...! But belt-&-braces, and I bought a Zalman ZM-NC2500 Plus. It lifts the lappy to a decent height AND Angle...and is SO UNBELIEVABLY QUIET that I struggled to hear the fans when I first fired it up! And delivered on-time, together with a PERSONAL follow-up email from Quiet PC asking if all was OK... No recommendation is necessary if you've shopped with Quiet PC before, because you'll already be a fan (groan...! :-)). But if you haven't shopped with Quiet PC before, you're in for a treat....do it! And no - I don't work for Quiet PC or get any discount as a result of this post. HTH? Gelert.
