Scythe Katana 4

11 February 2014
  • Summary: The Katana 4 from Scythe is a solid choice if you are looking for better-than-stock cooling without breaking the bank. Its performance at stock is acceptable considering its small size, which also makes it a great fit for small, cramped cases and mITX builds.
  • Pros: Decent cooling performance for its size at stock speeds, Great for cramped cases and mITX builds, Fairly quiet, Affordable price, Clear and easy-to-read instructions, Extremely easy to install
  • Cons: Performance offers very little headroom for overclocking, Fails to stand out versus the cheaper competition, Packaging offers very little protection, Has option for second fan but fan clips are not included.

  • Excerpt: Scythe sent us two CPU coolers that we hadn't tested yet, the brand new Ashura that came out at the end of March and the Katana 4 that's been around for about a year. Today we will take a closer look at both coolers.

Scythe Ashura / Katana 4 CPU-koelers review

26 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Scythe stuurde ons twee CPU-koelers die we nog niet getest hebben: de gloednieuwe Ashura, die sinds eind maart verkrijgbaar is, en de Katana 4, die al ongeveer een jaar op de markt is, maar we niet eerder onder handen hebben genomen.

Scythe KATANA 4 SCKTN-4000

11 February 2013
  • Pros: ik heb hem op een 65watt cpu, deze word niet warmer dan 38 graden, terwijl de fan onder de 500rpm blijft en dus zeer stil is, in rust is cpu nog geen 28 graden en doet de fan 230rpm
  • Cons: door het formaat wat lastig op een mATX, in een kleinere behuizing.

Scythe Katana 4

28 July 2012
  • Summary: Der Scythe Katana 4 ist ein kleiner und mit ordentlicher Leistung ausgestatteter CPU-Kühler. Die Verarbeitung liegt durchgehend auf einem hohen Niveau und auch die Optik weiß - trotz fehlender Vernickelung - zu gefallen.
