Scythe Susanoo 12 Heatpipe 4 Fan SCSO-1000 CPU Cooler Review

I wasn't sure coolers could get much larger, but Scythe is pushing the limits with the Susanoo.  One advantage of a huge, wide cooler with four fans, is that you get "all over" cooling.  It will cool your RAM, North Bridge, and even your graphics card, although to a smaller degree.



The Susanoo Scythe CPU cooler consists from the total of twelve 6mm heat pipes and features a two segment heat sink configuration by the name of DBS (Double Block Structure), resulting the Susanoo to this massive top-flow cooler form. Thanks to the large cooling area, the surrounding components such as MOSFETs, Northbridge, RAM and graphics card can be cooled simultaneously.The Scythe with Susanoo CPU Cooler is equipped with FMSB3 (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate 3) to ensure secure mounting on to the motherboard.



D.B.S (Double Block Structure)
By splitting the heatsink fin and heatpipe structure into 2 layers, 6 heatpipes at the bottom part + main heatsink fins to absorb the heat as a primarily stage, then the upper 6 heatpipes and sub heatsink fins to absorb the rest of the heat to create the ultimate cooling solution. Total 12 heatpipes are used in this super ultra-sized dimension heatsink, challenging the limit of the top-flow heatsink performance in the market!


W.A.M.S (Wide Area Multi Fan System)
All components around the CPU socket, including MOSFET, Northbridge, VGA, as well as RAM, this super ultra-sized heatsink can cool the entire devices in your PC! By using the build-in fan controller, this cooler can meet the demand from silent to high-performance users!


F.M.S.B.3 (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate 3)
Improved Scythe original back-plate names F.M.S.B.3 (Flip Mount Super Back-plate 3), the compatibility has been maximized as well as achieving the solid mounting of the cooler onto the motherboard.
