Although VIA and AMD both have exceptional embedded processors which only emit a few Watts of heat, at this time they simply aren't feasible for use in a full blown desktop setup. Until the day when the thermodynamics of computer processors have been worked out, heatsinks will continue to be required in all performance oriented desktop systems. The CPU heatsink we'll be trying out today is the Scythe Shogun CPU radiator with 120mm fan. This heatsink fan combination is compatible with ALL Socket 478, 775, 754, 939, and 940 solutions! The interesting part however, is the use of the patented Heatlane technology, which we last saw when trying out the Scythe Silent Box HDD cooler.

Features:

Fan Dimensions: 120 x 120 x 25 mm
Combined Dimensions: 123 x 98 x 147 mm
Fan Speed: 700 ~ 1600RPM (with rheostat)
Fan Noise Level: 20.0dBA @ 700RPM ~ 32.0dBA @ 1600RPM
Air Flow: 28.2CFM @ 700RPM ~ 62.0CFM @ 1600RPM
Weight: 790g

· 2 x Fixing plates
· 4 x Fixing plate screws
· 2 x Socket 478 & LGA775 mounting clips
· 2 x LGA775 mounting bars
· 4 x Insulation washers for LGA775 mounting bar
