Scythe today introduced an ASUS TUF Gaming Alliance co-branded variant of its Kotetsu Mark II tower-type CPU air cooler. The Kotetsu Mark II debuted late-2017. Co-branded bits include a new aluminium fin-stack top-plate, which features the urban digital camo pattern and TUF Gaming Alliance logo, and a refreshed Kaze Flex RGB 120 mm fan. Honestly I think the yellow color used on this cooler is just ugly. I also wish manufacturers would come up with a better way of attaching the fans than the use of clips.
 


Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 32GB Corsair RGB Vengeance,  ASRock X399 Taichi MB, Corsair, 1000D PC case, RTX 2070

    I mentioned this a while back. Surely there must be a more efficient yet aesthetically pleasing way to design an air cooler. This one in particular has no appeal, and plenty of blandness. And it seems cooler manufacturers of today are resurrecting the boxy automobile styles of the 80's.

    Big metal fin stack coolers are dead. Time to get with the AIO CPU cooler master race.
