Scythe are a name synonymous with aftermarket cooling enhancement products. I would like to wager that there aren't too many PC enthusiasts who hadn't at least seen, owned or heard about this well known Japanese based company's products. But who are Scythe, and what do they do?
|Scythe Co., Ltd. (Registered & incorporated in Tokyo Japan) originally started in Akihabara Electric Town located in Tokyo Japan, where visitors can find the latest electric products from computer parts and accessories to the world’s most advanced cellular phones with video camera capabilities, small displays and the ability to play movies! |
Scythe Co., Ltd., began its operation and business in November, 2002 as a distributor and manufacture of PC parts & gaming devices for “DIY PC Experts!”. Scythe’s first venture was to manufacture a super powerful YET super quiet CPU cooler (Scythe Kamakaze CPU cooler), and with the great success of this Kamakaze CPU cooler, Scythe became recognized as the leading CPU cooler supplier in Japan’s Akihabara Electric Town. Shortly there after, due to popular demand, Scythe began exporting products all over the world.
I was fortunate enough to have been asked by Scythe to review some of their products on Overclock3d.net, and I must say I eagerly jumped at the chance. Due to the number of products I was sent, I have broken this review into 2 parts. The first review subject from Scythe to enter into the OC3D Labs is the new Kama Meter, followed by a selction of Scythe's Minebea cooling fan range. Anyway let's get on with the review.

One thing I really like about Scythe's packaging on their products, is that it's vibrant and stands out from the crowd. A little crowded perhaps, but effective marketing none-the-less.
