Not long ago cooling experts from Japan Scythe introduced Ashura CPU cooler. It is a large, but thin, asymmetrical design cooler with a silent 140 mm GlideStream PWM fan and 6 heat pipes. Asymmetrical design means cooler's body is shifted away from center of base to improve compatibility with tall memory module heatspreaders used in enthusiast systems. Scythe Ashura costs about 45 EUR/55 USD.
