Scythe Yasya Review
Packaging & Initial Impressions
Of all heatsink manufacturers, it is hard to overlook Scythe's flamboyant packaging. This is most certainly a far cry from the minimalist colour schemes from the likes of Noctua and Thermalright for example, however it still serves its purpose. This is a Scythe Yasya and these are it's key features...
Out of the box, the Scythe Yasya looks mighty sharp. The most distinct feature of the cooler is it's unorthodox fin design. Scythe tout it as a T.M.L.F. (Trident Multi Layer Fin) structure. Aside being a very densely populated fin layout, the jagged surface is there to deflect air in a more efficient manner.
There are no less than six "U Shaped" heatpipes mounted to the base of the cooler. Sporting a nickel plated copper construction, we expect it's conductive ability to be sufficiently competent.
Finally the Scythe Yasya offers two mounting kits; one for Intel LGA775/1156/1366 and one for Socket AM2/AM3. Both of these use conventional push-pin and clip installations respectively. Given the cooler's weight this might raise an eyebrow, however it does make the cooler very simple to install. Enough chit chat, let's get testing.
