Scythe Tatsumi Overview
I have attached the fan to the cooler to give you an idea of how large the CPU cooler is. It is a very small and compact cooler with the official dimensions of 102 x 146 x 84 mm (W x H x D), that is with the fan installed.
The fan itself is Scythe’s own Slip Stream 92mm PWM fan. This fan will have a speed range of 300 rpm (±200) ~ 2500 rpm (±10%), which will provide an airflow of 11,38 ~ 94,37 m³/h / 6.70 ~ 55.55 CFM and noise level of 7,2 ~ 31,07 dBA.
The heatsink itself is not very thick at all. Again with the fan installed the fan is only 84 mm thick. This should give you more than enough room for your RAM modules.
Looking at the backside of the heatsink we can see how it is designed and how the heatpipes go up through it. The Tatsumi used the highly efficient M.A.P.S.-fin structure to optimally make us of the cool airflow and minimize windage. A second optional fan can be mounted on the back of the heatsink.
At the top of the heatsink we can see the protruding heatpipes and the top fin has the Scythe logo on it.
The base of the heatsink is nickel-plated copper and actually has a small heatsink built into it.
There are three large copper heatpipes that come up from the base of the heatsink in a “U” shape. This will help draw heat away from the base.
Taking a look at the bottom of the base there are no obvious machining marks, which means the cooler will make perfect contact with your CPU.
