Scythe Ashura: Features


  • Asymmetrical Design: The asymmetrical layout of the base plate allows the Ashura to be mounted in various clearances to the memory modules, making the usage of memory modules with tall heatsinks possible. Compatibility to various sockets and motherboards is increased, and user-friendly, simple installation of the Ashura is realized.

  • Twin-Fan Installation: When developing the Ashura, the possibility for mounting a second fan was incorporated. The necessary spare pair of fan clips is therefore part of the accessory list. With a second fan helping, cooling performance can be further enhanced by applying the push & pull principal (The extra fan has to be purchased separately).

  • Newly Developed Mounting System: Another new feature can be seen is the Ashura's new mounting system. Based on the over-the-years experience of CPU cooler mounting systems and Scythe expertise, the Ashura mounting was designed with the keywords "simplicity" and "reliability" in mind.

  • GlideStream 140 PWM: The 140mm GlideStream PWM covers all areas of cooling. Able to work both very quietly as well as with max cooling performance, it forms a perfect team with the new Ashura CPU cooler.
