Scythe Andy Samurai Master

25 June 2007
  • Summary: I was extremely pleased with the Andy Samurai Master Cooler. The quality of the construction is excellent, the base is very smooth and flat, and the whole cooler is light in weight. The installation was so incredibly easy, it only required a few quick steps, and nothing had to be removed from the case to install it. On top of that, the performance was great.
  • Pros: Quiet fan, Excellent performance, Wide compatibility over several socket types, Incredibly simple installation
  • Cons: Fan is not totally silent, No fan grill

  • Summary: The Andy Samurai Master joins the long roster of Scythe heatsinks that reached SPCR's top ranks of quiet, high performance coolers. While it sets no new records, the ASM's cooling ability is good enough for consideration by any performance-oriented computer enthusiast. It doesn't need to set any new records; for the first time since the invention of the PC, current CPUs are actually running cooler today than the ones from a year ago.

  • Summary: With this much copper above the CPU, it's easy to make quick assumptions about the Samurai's thermal capabilities that could be far from accurate.

  • Summary: Like the earlier Kamakaze, the blow up fan orientation of the Scythe Samurai is useful to exhaust the CPU heat from the case through a back panel duct. This can reduce the amount of heat that gets into the PSU and keep the CPU heat from just recirculating inside the case, which is what the common "blow down" fan heatsinks do.

Scythe Andy Samurai Master

15 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The Scythe Andy Samurai Master is a fantastic example of a CPU cooler. It has awesome performance and runs very quietly considering its cooling ability. However, the mounting method for LGA775 boards and the cost may put off potential buyers. If you want a very high end air cooler for your processor and don’t mind wrestling with it for a few minutes during mounting then this cooler could be the one for you but it’s definitely not a budget solution.
  • Pros: Great performance, Very quiet
  • Cons: Pretty expensive, Annoying mounting method

Scythe Andy Samurai Master

3 September 2013
  • Summary: Dies war nun der zweite "Downblower" Kühler von Scythe, den wir im Juli testen konnten. Dieses Modell ist eindeutig das leistungsstärkere, Dank des größeren Lüfters und der Bauform und Größe des Kühlers. Mit dem Andy Samurai Master können auf jeden Fall sowohl Silent Systeme, als auch Overclocker befriedigt werden. Der Lüfter ist ein 120 mm Modell aus dem eigenen Hause und dreht nur mit knapp 1200 U/Min. Von der Lautstärke sind die Scythe Lüfter sehr gut, keine Frage.
