Well I’m not too sure about the name ‘lori’ for a CPU cooler, but why not!? As long as it performs well, then what does a name really matter!? Scythe is known for making great products so the product name doesn’t matter much..
The evolving PC market moves towards yet smaller and faster Computers. Scythe reacts to the trend and offers a compact Top-Flow CPU Cooler, which is especially developed for Mini- and Micro-ATX systems. Iori supports the latest platforms of both AMD® and Intel®. But it gets even better: Thanks to the low-weight of the heatsink, an improved version of the Push-Pin mounting mechanism has been used, allowing fast heatsink mounting on virtually every motherboard.
In spite of its compact dimensions of 107 x 92 x 136 mm and its low heatsink weight of only 400 grams, Scythe Iori is able to cool latest CPUs from both Intel® and AMD®. Scythe achieved this by utilizing three 6 mm copper-heatpipes, which are crossing the heatsink twice, and the use of a custom-made PWM axial-fan. Fan speed of the supplied 100-millimeter model can be controlled by the motherboard thanks to the PWM-function between 300 and 1.800 RPM. Hence allows the fan to move between 7,3 and 43,74 cubic feet per minute (12,4 ~ 74,3m³/h) at a low noise level between 4,5 and 26,7 dBA. The custom-made axial-fan is equipped with common 92 mm mounting holes.
The fact, that the Iori CPU Cooler is a compact and low-weight solution with a really convenient mounting system, makes it a perfect CPU Cooler for both Gaming and Home-Theatre-PCs. Being a Top-Flow Cooler, Scythe Iori is able to use the airflow of the 100-millimeter fan to additionally cool surrounding components such as chipset, memory and voltage regulator modules.
Compatibility to a big variety of sockets has always been a strong point of Scythe CPU Coolers. The Iori CPU Cooler supports the Intel® sockets LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 and LGA775 as well as AMD® sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+. All required mounting clips, as well as the user manual and thermal grease are supplied in the Iori package.
Scythe Iori CPU Cooler (Model no. SCIOR-1000) is available as of today, whereas the suggested retail price is 24,50 EUR (excl. Taxes).
