At Phoronix, we have seen our fair share of heatsinks and different contraptions from the Waffer PC AirCon PAC400 to more basic heatsinks such as the ATake Phantom Robot Accipiter. Although the item up for testing in this article is nothing incredibly unique, its size is something to praise. The item we're looking at is the Scythe Kamaboko CPU Cooler. Back in the day, CPU heatsinks would only be compatible with one socket, but nowadays in order to drive manufacturing costs down and keep enthusiasts satisfied when changing sockets; it's no longer uncommon for a heatsink to be nearly universal. Scythe's Kamaboko is compatible with Socket 754/939/940 and Socket 478/LGA 775.

Features:

Fan Dimensions: 92 x 92 x 25mm
Combined Dimensions: 96 x 94 x 92mm
Fan Speed: 1900RPM
Fan Noise Level: 22.9dBA
Air-Flow: 47.3CFM
Weight: 555g
Compatibility: · Athlon64/64+ Socket754/940/939 3800+ (Not for 370/A)
· Socket 478/775 P4 Prescott 3.6G+

Contents:

After opening the heatsink container, we were pleasantly surprised to find a wide array of accessories and parts. The parts list is as follows:

· 1 x CPU Cooler
· 2 x Mounting Bar (for LGA 775)
· 4 x LGA 775 washers
· 1 x Retention bracket for Socket 754/939/940
· 2 x Retention bracket screws
· 1 x Back-plate for Socket 754/939/940/LGA 775
· 2 x Back-plate screws
· 4 x LGA 775 Back-plate screws
· 1 x Wrench
· 1x Thermal Compound
