Scythe Shuriken Low Profile CPU Cooler Review

» Discuss this article (3)


To properly test the Scythe Shuriken Low Profile CPU Cooler, I will need to record temperatures during both idle time (little, to no CPU usage), as well as during full load (100% CPU usage). I will be using SpeedFan 4.33 to gather the temperatures of the CPU cores. I will be using OCCT:PK to simulate the full load testing and running it for thirty minutes. I will let the computer sit and cool down for thirty minutes before gathering the idle temperatures. I will be testing the processor at both stock speeds with stock voltage settings, as well as overclocked speeds of 3.6GHz, with the voltage increased to 1.46 volts. All of the temperatures are measured in degrees Celsius.

Comparison Heatsinks:





As you can see, the Scythe Shuriken Low Profile CPU Cooler was beaten by some of the leading coolers out on the market. I do want to add that the coolers that are actually in its class, such as the Thermolab Micro and Nano Silencers, were both beaten by the Scythe Shuriken Low Profile CPU Cooler.
