Hi OCN. This is Jim from Pure Overclock. Love ya love your forum.... Although I am a reviewer at PureOC, I do peek in at OCN. I personally reviewed the Scythe Susanno.

One of our members posted a link to this thread and I had fun observing it. To tell you the truth, I had the exact same opinion as most of the objectors. Read the entire review as I will hi light the positives;

The cooler is big no doubt. There s not much pressure on the mobo(same as any cooler). The top down design does not just cool the CPU. It cools the memory, mofset and nortbridge heatsinks. Anybody who has a cooler at half the price has to realize, at voltages of 1.375v and clock speeds on a 950/930 @ 4.2-4.3GHz will simply fail as far as temps whereas coolers like the Susanno, Noctua D-14, Ziggy Darknight and very few others shine.


The price is $95 but one of the hardware retailers has a $15 rebate on the Susanno making it one of the best bang per $. The Susanno cools great and the fans are not high decibels and just about silent inside a case.

Yes the D-14 is great but you get the added feature of extra cooling to the heat generating motherboard components.

Hope this helps the objections and I look foward to more discussion and other helpful threads at OCN.



Thanks again!

PureOC Jim

Welcome and nice review smile.gif

One of the benefits of this cooler to me seems to be on motherboards where you can't fit 2 or 3 fans onto the heatsink (Silver Arrow for example) because of the DIMM slots being too close to the socket and the ram clashing with the fan (or heatsink) - especially high profile ram.

Considering the D14 is like $80 or so this isn't so bad, especially with the rebate you speak of. I think UK pricing is terrible because the D14 is around £60 where as this is around £80 at a good store which may be a bit much.. I think everyone was just expecting better performance due to the size. Looks like a fun cooler to "mod" though.

Ouchy? Motherboards can easily take more than that if they're horizontal...The TRUE Copper was 1.7KG iirc.

Welcome, Jim!

Do you have some pics taken of your test configuration. If yes, would you mind posting a few ones up here. I especially like to see the Susanoo sitting on your Tecnofront HWD Hardware Dock.

A question:- can you install 120x120x25mm fans on the Susanoo with the provided stock clips?

I bet if you look at the VRM and NB temps, you will see it does rock epic temps.

Soon we're going to need a spare case just to house our heatsinks.

The only pic I took was inside a case to show the size after installation. It is in the review. Negative on the 120mm fans.
