Rasetsu combines the outstanding design of the Yasya CPU Cooler with a top-flow layout. The newly developed T.M.L.F. (Trident Multi Layer Fin) structure provides a higher intake volume, thus enabling a more efficient use of the unparalleled Six-Heatpipe Construction. Equipped with the new "Slip Stream 120 PWM Adjustable" fan, users can manually adjust the bandwidth between 470 to 1,370 rpms and 740 to 1,900 rpms. Rasetsu uses the VTMS -- Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System -- for quick and safe mounting.

  • newegg V.T.M.S. (Versatile Tool-Free Multiplatform System) Improved Version of VTMS allows multiplatform installation without any tools.
  • newegg Twist Intersected Pipe Structure Twisted intersected 6 heatpipes achieve high heat transfer concentrated onto the topflow heatsink layout.
  • newegg Trident Multi Layer Fin Structure By placing the number of triangle shaped main and supplemental heatsink fins to maximize the air intake volume, heat absorb rate from the built-in heatpipes is ideal for extreme overclocking purposes as well as to cool the high-end multi-core CPU.
  • newegg Slip Stream 120 PWM Adjustable Fan Equipped with a Scythe original Slip Stream 120PWM Adjustable fan, the Rasetsu allows you to choose the fully automatic fan speed control or alternatively adjust the PWM band range to fulfill your demand for silence or high performance.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid it like the plague

Pros: Looks good, um....looks good, did I say it looks good?

Cons: Don't even think of purchasing thinking you'll have a quick change out, if you're building a new comp from scratch buy the fan first and build around it because it won't fit unless you remove your memory (thus losing a bank)

Other Thoughts: Think hard before buying this, if you're going to upgrade CPU's or memory in the future be prepared to have a wallhanger because it's just not worth the hassle, bigger is not always better.

5 out of 5 eggsStellar Cooler for Shorter Needs

Pros: I have an old Thermaltake Xaser III case. While it's full tower, it's got a minor issue - the side fans sit in an inserts that happens to encroach on the area right above the CPU. This wouldn't be a problem, except that you cannot fit today's standard LOL HUEG heatsinks in there. I had to check 4 or 5 times before I bought this to know if it'll be short enough.

It was! Hooray!

I can't get my proc to go more than 15 degrees C over ambient. This is not the best performing cooler on the market, but it does amazing things with the space it takes up.

Cons: This heatsink has 2 things to be aware of, though neither warrant removing from the rating because I merely happened to buy a mobo that exacerbated one of the issues, and the other one was to be expected.

Issue 1 - If you're getting this, make sure your RAM does not have the super-tall heat spreaders. It starts encroaching even on the "A2" slot on my ASUS P8Z68-V, though I do still have space sitting under this thing for a stick to fit in slot A1, it'll be a pain to install.

Issue 2 - the above mentioned Mobo has heatsinks above and to the left of the processor socket. This makes the installation a bit of a pain, because you can't get easy access to the pushpin up there.

Other Thoughts: I wish Scythe would include some sort of "installer tool" that was a flat bar with a little right-angle leg on it, shaped sort of like an Allen wrench, that you could use in place of a flathead screwdriver to push the Intel-style pushpin mounts down and turn them. That would make this cooler just that much, well, cooler. It'd get me to say "They thought of EVERYTHING".

Other than that, this is a fantastic performing cooler, given the size that it takes up.

4 out of 5 eggsIts a beast, a big beast

Pros: This thing is going to cool your cpu better than any heat sink and fan design cooler on the market and is very affordable

Cons: Its huge, had to take two of my ram heats sinks off for it to fit, and its a ***** to get on not gonna take an egg off for it though; probably opporator error.

Other Thoughts: Measure your case, make sure it can fit inside this thing is a big boy

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied with purchase

Pros: It's so large, the fan doesn't need to spin very fast to keep it cool. The adjustment dial is quality, doesn't feel flimsy at all.
My temperatures aren't much lower than what I was at, but they don't fluxuate nearly as much as my old heat sink/fan when I do CPU intensive stuff.

Cons: It's so large, you may need to make sure you have the room in your case. It sits high enough to not clip my memory, which is the only thing around the CPU that has any height.
It also isn't very pretty to look at, but who cares?-

Other Thoughts: I'd almost like the option to spin the fan even faster; at max speed on the dial, I still can barely hear it in my case, so why not move more air at that point.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: This cooler has no problem at all keeping the core temps down and even though there may be some cons regarding the fan that comes with it, replacing a fan isn't that big of a deal. not to mention it comes with a 2yr warranty according to newegg

Cons: one of the fins was slightly damaged due to whoever clipped on the fan, but it was minimal and unnoticeable once installed.

The manufacturer's name is deceiving, darn Japanies, I thought this was a USA made product as hinted by the name, but I now know that you should just look up the company as well to be sure. (USA made products are selling point for me because I'd rather only support our economy if I can help it)

Other Thoughts: Be aware of size! Especially those that have tall sticks of RAM.

I knew this would be alright in my case and around my other parts and everything fit just fine for me.

3 out of 5 eggsThe fan ruins the experience

Pros: Massive cooling capacity.
Shorter than tower-style 120mm heatsinks.
Good RAM clearance.
6 heatpipes.
Very smooth, flat base.
Fan controller is a wonderful feature.
Mounting clips are brilliant, frankly. Easy on, easy off, very secure mounting.
Mounting is easy, even with mobo already installed.

Cons: The fan on the unit I received is just abysmal, terrible, atrocious, awful - it is ridiculously noisy even at the lowest speed setting. It's kinda heart breaking to have my hopes set so high due to the fan speed controller and then to have those hopes shattered because of the obnoxious noise of this fan even at the slowest speed.

Other Thoughts: Installed on Phenom II x4-955, Gigabyte MA785G-UD3H, Antec Sonata III.

Replaced a Scythe Ninja Rev B that had a Scythe S-Flex SFF21E fan mounted on it. I'm not sure which heatsink is actually better but I can certainly say that the S-Flex SFF21E fan is way, way better than the "Slipstream 120". The good news is that I can mount the S-Flex to the Rasetsu.

5 out of 5 eggsFunctional Craftsmanship

Coming Soon!

Pros: Beautiful refined and highly functional design.
Very easy to install with its clever design.
Cools extremely well both at idle and under heavy load.
Super easy to swap out fans.
Good clearance for RAM with tall coolers.
Construction is so much more refined than say an HDT (they look like the Ford Pintos of coolers while the Scythe looks like a Lexus!).
Design cools extremely well!

Cons: Not a con, but the fins are so thin they are easy to bend, but they are thin for maximum heat dissipation.

Other Thoughts: I have used this and other Scythe coolers in a 1/2 dozen builds they function and look terrific. I always swap out the fans with programable LED fans so I can Trademark/advertize my custom PC business.

5 out of 5 eggsExpect Reality - 6 mo. Update

Pros: PWM fan can be fine tuned to user needs/desires in CFM vs dBA. Don't listen to other reviews that say you can't. They are wrong. With decent ventilation this cooler WILL drop below system-ambient and perform BETTER than most higher-end coolers that cost 2~3x as much, doing so with WAY less noise.

Cons: Front to back or top top bottom exhaust air flow; depending on CPU mount, you may not have an option (I didn't with AMD/ABIT CPU/MOBO).

Other Thoughts: At 72F/23C room temp, my CPU idles at 28C, SYS @ 30C. That's 5C over ambient! I recently improved airflow in my case with a top fan (DIY mod) because it sits in a cabinet under my desk that tends to trap heat but I also upgraded my GPU. Maxes out at 63C under full prime95 load, cool-n-quiet off. Drops to <40C within SECONDS of stopping Prime95 workers. I can only imagine how well this cooler would perform in a quality case and allowed to breath.

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps processor cold

Pros: Keeps an Amd Phenom 970 Zosma chip OC'd to 4.1ghz at 34 degrees on idle and 42 degrees under full load.
Fan is also fairly quiet.

Cons: It is a very large heatsink, it barely has any clearance over ram slots.
Can be difficult to install due to large size.

Other Thoughts: I used Arctic cooling Mx-4 thermal paste

5 out of 5 eggsSub Zero

Keeps my AMD Phenom Hex core idling at around 29 degrees Celsius (nothing TOO impressive as i have seen idle temps of 20)
However, at full load, with some Arctic MX-4, my max temps on my Proc are between 40-44 degrees. Beings my room is always hot, dry, and my case fans are all wasted as the case has no breathing room at all, this is impressive. I am very pleased

Cons: I am a little scared to open my computer these days. I have heard stories of this thing attacking and eating people.
Also it is QUITE LARGE. i am almost afreaid to transport my PC around now. I set it on top of lots of pillows and lay it down on its side to get it to my house from my old ladie's

Other Thoughts: These thing is built to two do things- please people and eat people. Just dont get on its bad side.
Probably gonna replace the fan it comes with with a little higher end just because i can. Not needed though
