The Ashura is a fine addition to Scythe's slowly growing stable of modern CPU coolers. The Glide Stream 140 fan isn't an acoustical marvel like our Noctua NF-P14 reference fan, but it sounds pretty darn good and much better than almost any other...

Auch mit dem Scythe Ashura zeigt Scythe erneut deutlich, dass ein guter Kühler nicht gleich mir riesigen Abmessungen und dicken Kühler einhergehen muss. Zwar ist der Ashura mit dem 140mm Lüfter definitiv kein wirklich kleiner Kühler - auf Grund der...

Om met de Ashura te beginnen. Deze koeler biedt op hoge draaisnelheid uitstekende koelprestaties, maar is daar niet bijster stil. Op lage draaisnelheid is de koeler letterlijk onhoorbaar, maar zij de koelprestaties niet goed. Klik hier voor een...
