Scythe Setsugen GPU cooler tested

Index




The cooling system consists of four heatpipes with a nickel-plated copper GPU base and lots of typical aluminium fins. As you can see Scythe manages to fit the fan inside the cooler. This does save up some space, but we would have not cared if the cooler would have been bigger. Also the space between the GPU mounting and the fan is quite small which may cause problems with some heatsinks. For a cooler rated for about 200W TDP graphics-cards the design is very compact.

Let's take a look of the cooler in it's full glory:

While the fan is 12cm and only 12mm thick, it is not one of the quiet ones.

But the fan can be quieten by the fan-controller, which allows speeds between 800rpm and 2000rpm. At full speed the fan is clearly too loud to count as a silent solution, but at just 800rpm it is inaudible.

Sixteen RAM-coolers, several transistor coolers, thermal compound, a copper plate, mounting kit and instruction manuals in several languages complete the package.
