Scythe Shuriken Heatsink



Just ordered a Scythe Shuriken Heatsink as needed a new one as swapped my Thermalright SI-120 out of my other pc which wasn't working at the time but is now so after trying two of the old heatsinks i have about which are crap i decided to splash the cash and get a new one for my lovely old P4

So will report back on how good it cools a pentium 4 3.4 prescott aka the waffle maker

Spec Info

it turned up today

It does look a well made bit of kit with a quality feel to it and comes with fittings for most CPU fixings which fit into the side of the heatsink and are well secured

was a little bit of a pain fitting on motherboard which was already in case but not to bad and as for temps with the standard heatsink i was getting temps just under 50c idle which ain't good but the P4 Prescott does run hot so with Scythe Shuriken i'm now getting round about 40c which are better but with a Thermalright SI-120 you can get temps down to about 34c idle

So it does work well but if i had the choice i would hunt down a Thermalright SI-120 but i'm still happy with the Shuriken as it works but don't expect to be blown away by it's performance
