Scythe Minebea Cooling Fans

Packaging and Contents

The Scythe Minebea and Mini-Kaze Cooling fan packaging is fairly standard as far as Scythe are concerned. The packaging is eye catching and provides specifications and content, albeit on crowded real-estate. All the fans come packaged in a fairly thick plastic envelope, with the fans and included accessories kept nice and firmly held within an cardboard insert. The cardboard insert and plastic exterior should prove extremely hardy and prevent any real damage to the fan caused by knocks and bumps in transit.

Due to the information being identical on the rear of the fan packaging, I have taken the liberty of just providing front shots.

All of the fans, including the Mini-Kaze come supplied with 4 fan screws and a 3 to 4-pin molex connector. You'll notice from the image below that the fan cable itself isn't sleeved, which is a pity, as it makes the fans look finished. Perhaps this is something that Scythe could look at in the future, as it's nice to be able to install fans into a case straight away, instead of having to sleeve them. Especially, considering that other case fan manufacturers are doing it, and enthusiasts who will utilise these cooling fans will more than likely have a case window installed.

Now that we've checked out the packaging, let's look at the fans in a little more detail.

Very sweet fans, great review Matt as usual!!! Looks like I know which fans I'll be using for my next build. I bet those Ultra 3000's in push/pull around a triple 120mm rad would be amazing.Quote

Thanks weihk and Fraggles.

@ FragTek: Yeah those Ultra 3000 would work perfectly in a push/pull config. Just make sure you run them at 7v though aight Quote
