Scythe Kotetsu Mark 3 CPU Cooler Review

Affordable air coolers are something we always love covering here at ThinkComputers. We were quite impressed with the Jonsbo Pisa A5 as well as the Deepcool AK400 WH. While you may know Scythe for their massive air cooler, they have much smaller and more affordable offerings as well. Today we are taking a look at their Kotetsu Mark 3, which is a single-tower, single-fan cooler that is not all that large and should be pretty easy to install as well. Will we be adding this cooler to our list of great affordable CPU coolers? Read on as we find out!

Special thanks to Scythe for providing us with the Kotetsu Mark 3 CPU cooler to review!
