Product information: Samurai P4/AMD XP/AMD 64 CPU CoolerAfter the success of the Kamakaze, Scythe have taken all their know-how and produced yet another great quality quiet CPU cooler. Just like the Kamakaze, the Samurai is also very versatile. It is compatible with Pentium 4 (socket 478), Athlon XP (socket A / 462) and now for Athlon 64 (socket 745/940)
As you can see from the above picture, the cooler is supplied with a variable fan speed controller which slots into an unused PCI slot at the back of your PC. This allows you to easily change the speed of the fan according to your desired noise/CPU temperature balance. At its slowest setting, the 80mm fan rotates at 1300 rpm which produces just 16 dBA. At its fastest speed of 3400 rpm the noise level increases to 37 dBA.
