Orochi now LGA1366 compatible!

Scythe unveils Orochi Rev. B - Active / Passive Hybrid Cooler is now
also compatible with LGA1366

Hamburg, 31st March 2009: The already famously known Scythe Orochi
CPU Cooler takes its name from the "snake with 8 heads" (Japanese:
Yamata no Orochi) and is now unveiled in a new revision B.




Overall 10 Heatpipes transport the processor's heat to the massive
aluminum fins of this 1.2 kg Cooling Giant, by this a massive heat
exchange is guaranteed.



Supplemental 140 mm Kaze Maru fan rotates with just 500 rpm at the
Orochi and produces super silent 10.8 dBA. Using the included
fan-clips, also one standard 120 mm fan can be mounted on Orochi. For
performance users, mounting of extra 140 mm Kaze Maru or standard
120mm fans for up to three fans is possible. Kaze Maru 140 mm fan is
optionally available with three different fan speeds: 500, 1200 and
1900 rpm which allows the users to optimally select their preferred
additional fan (not included in delivery)!


Attachment of the Orochi Rev. B is accomplished by F.M.S.B. (Flip
mount super Back Plate) which is already known from Mugen 2. This
improves both compatibility as well as mounting of the cooler on
almost all current motherboards and also supports the new Intel Socket



The Orochi Rev. B is available now for US$ 78.80 excluding TAX /
46.50 Euro excluding VAT.
