The Scythe Kama Angle was quite an odd looking cooler, to say the least, but its "V" shaped design was a success. The performance is where it should be and definitely put a good fight against the large Xigmatek HDT-S1283 cooler. The cooler was also one of the quietest CPU coolers that I have come across. This shouldn't come as a surprise though as Scythe is known for its silent coolers. An impressive feature about this cooler is its flexibility. First of all, the cooler can be mounted in four different directions, providing airflow to certain chosen areas. This also makes the cooler quite versatile and able to be installed on countless motherboards without any problems. The fan can also be installed in three different locations on the cooler. What I didn’t enjoy too much though was the installation. The corners of the heatsink's edge do make it difficult to install using the push-pin since there is not much room for your fingers to push and twist. Other than that, the Scythe Kama Angle is a top performer for either the average Joe or the enthusiast.
Overall, I was pleased with the cooler's design and performance but most of all, I liked how quiet it was even with the fan at full speed. I have no problem recommending this cooler to either the overclocking novice, anyone looking for a quiet system, or for someone just wanting a cooler that will get them through the day at safe temperatures.
