Scythe Kabuto 3 Review

This time we got our hands on the Scythe Kabuto 3, the revised version of Scythes 120mm top blow CPU cooler. The cooling concept stayed mostly the same, but design and the heatpipe construction have been reworked radically. Four of the overall six 6mm heatpipes have been replaced by three 8mm heatpipes, reducing the total number of heatpipes to five. On the next pages we show you how the new Scythe Kabuto 3 performs.
