Shuriken Rev.B Quiet Low Profile CPU Cooler

If you are a fan of old Ninja movies then you might know what a Shuriken actually is. If not, it is a metal star-shaped object more commonly known as a "death star", "ninja star" or even "throwing star". Ninjas use them as a weapon that they can conceal in their clothing and then throw toward their enemies to inflict as much pain as possible! In the movies, the goodies always seem to hit the baddies directly between the eyes: at least it was a quick death!
As to why Scythe have decided to name their latest CPU cooler Shuriken is anyone's guess! It might be because of the cutting-edge (sorry!) performance it provides, or perhaps because Scythe are running out of Japanese names to call their products. Whatever the reasons are, no doubt Scythe will continue to provide us with some of the strangest names for CPU coolers ever conceived!
The Scythe Shuriken is essentially a smaller version of the Zipang. Measuring only 64mm in height, this cooler should have no problems fitting inside a low profile or media centre chassis. It uses three heatpipes which have been bent into an oval shape. The heat generated by the CPU feeds through both sides of the heatpipes and is transferred into the large aluminium fins. The heatpipes are soldered to the underside of the large heatsink which helps to reduce the cooler's overall height.
Mounted on the top of the large aluminium heatsink is an oddly-sized 100mm PWM fan. The PWM function allows the motherboard to control the fan's RPM based on the temperature of the CPU. This means that if things start to heat up then the fan speed will increase to compensate for the additional heat. Another odd feature about the fan is that it is only 12mm thick: another height-saving feature.

- Low profile - ideal for media PCs

Good cooler, Had used it a while on my i5 2500K, really limited the overclocking headroom, running very hot, Would advise for dual core chips or low power quad's without OC'ing as it cannot keep up with the hot i5's

Cool, Quiet....but

Great looking fan, once installed ran very quiet and very cool, Got it in a htpc on a M-ATX Mobo, The only problem was the install, the instructions are parp, reaching under the heatsink to push the pins was a pain! but once done it fitted very snugly. Great for a HTPC.

Nice cooler

I bought this to prop up an ageing core 2 duo whose HSF had packed up. I have a cramped case, so wanted a fan that would fit within the same profiles as the original, but also provide silent cooling. I'm not overclocking the CPU, so can't speak in that context, but at stock speeds it cooled the CPU 20c better than the OEM (remember, the old fan was starting to go) and is almost completely silent. If you aren't bothered about OC then, this is a more than adequate HSF for your needs
