Scythe Infinity Conroe HeatPipe CPU Cooler

The Scythe SCINF-1000 is a huge cooler. Scythe themselves have a huge reputation to live up to. Will the Scythe Infinity match that reputation and perform well when used with a Conroe CPU? I take it to the test in the following review and see how it fares.
Scythe have made quite an impression of late in the cooling market. Their line of CPU coolers are really (pardon the pun) "hotting up" the heatsink market. With some great designs and more than a couple of heatpipes, enthusiasts are really digging what Scythe are all about.
The packaging from Scythe was pretty typical from a lot of PC manufacturers. Instead of the understated box, Scythe have put as much on their box as possible. This gives the external a rather crowded feel, though I would imagine this would stand out on the shelves and grab your attention. Luckily for scythe, most PC enthusiasts will be buying this from an online store who will let the gargantuan heatsink speak for itself in it's pictures.
When we open it all up we see what Scythe have included in the bundle:
The fan is an AD1212DS A73GL(6TCL3) 120x120x25mm 23.5dBA @ 46.5CFM@ 1200RPM. Pretty nice specs. I'm glad Scythe have decided to include a decent-specced as well as quiet fan in the bundle. Starting up this whirrs a bit but as it is 3pin it gets throttled down to a nice level.
