The 40mm super-low profile CPU cooler Kozuti was developed for use in home theater PCs (HTPC) and slim chassis systems. The Kozuti is equipped with three 6mm heat pipes, which are arranged in a low profile oval structure by applying the newly developed S.F.M.S (Stealth Fan Mounting Structure). This provides space for the 80 x 80 x 10mm fan mounting in between the oval structure and below the fins, making the cooler merely 40mm in height. The Kozuti is recommended for processors up to 65 Watt TDP (up to 95 Watt TDP only with maximum rpm).

  • newegg Super-Low profile CPU Cooler Only 40 mm in height – ideal for height-constrained chassis.
  • newegg S.F.M.S (Stealth Fan Mounting Structure) By introducing the newly developed S.F.M.S, a super mini cooler - no taller than 40mm - is achieved by mounting a fan directly under the fins, which is compatible with more small form factor PCs, such as Mini-ITX case, slim case, etc.
  • newegg E.I.S (Easy Installation with Screw) Easy and safe installation with screws instead of using a backplate. The Kozuti features universal compatibility with most current platforms including Intel LGA775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD Sockets AM2/AM2+/AM3.
  • newegg PWM Fan speed is automatically regulated by the PWM signal of the mainboard. The fan operates within the range of 800 to 3300 rpm, depending on the load.

4 out of 5 eggsVery low profile. 95W is a stretch though.

Pros: Very low profile.
Would be perfect for a 65W cpu.
Solid build quality, fairly simple install on an FM2+ board.
Reasonable sound levels at max speed.

Cons: The manufacturer's website claim it can handle a 95W CPU with the fan at full speed. It gets a tad hotter than I would like (7 degrees from max temp under stress testing).

I felt like the stock cooler was better, and I believe the fan is the issue. I feel like this 80mm fan could stand to spin a bit faster (the stock cooler's fan puts out a touch more air at a smaller diameter). The stock cooler will not fit my case though.

I had to mount mine 90 degrees off the instructions or the heat pipes would have blocked a RAM slot. Still rides against one RAM stick.

Other Thoughts: Bought this with the intent to build a seriously compact/portable PC that provides decent power. It fits that role nicely, though I do kind of wish I had waited for the A8-7600; I think it would be a better fit.

The case I've got this in is about as small as a mini itx case can get, and I'm sure this isn't adding to the cooling efficiency. I have more modification to do to this case to get it where I want it still.

Newegg's price is almost double their competitors at this time (currently $66, I paid $28). I would suggest shopping around.

5 out of 5 eggsITX w/i7

Pros: Fit in an apevia x-fit 100, and I put a 15x80mm fan on top for push pull. So I have a 2600k z68 running fine slightly 4gigs @54c, in a rig the size of cigar box.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: the top fan I added with zip ties was this one:

3 out of 5 eggsNoisey, just a bit.

Pros: Nice and low profile, good price point, build is great, nice looking unit.

Cons: This can be a noisy unit if it's on high and your system needs the cooling. For my build it seemed to have to be always 75 from full throttle half of the time. Although the heatsink is low profile it may tend to intefere with your CPU and RAM placement on a ITX build.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect...almost

Pros: - Low Profile
- Reasonable Cooling performance
- Fan placed under primary cooling fins and heatpipes
- PWM Fan will work with Mainboard to maintain balance between loud/cool

Cons: - Did not work with fan flipped to blow "up" through the fins, which would have been ideal inside of the Lian-Li Q11-B Case I am using, so CPU heat exhausted straight out of the PSU exhaust fan. Fan continued to 'unexpectedly' rub on some unseen part of the Heatsink under low speeds (fine under high speeds...unbalanced fan blades maybe?)

- Cooling performance on the Zotac Z68ITX-A-E mainboard is lackluster. The mainboard itself is too claustrophobic to have the fan blow down towards the base, because it creates a static pressure bubble, preventing the fan from efficiently pulling cool air down over the heat pipes and fins. Unfortunately, as stated above, it didn't work 'blowing up' which would have removed the static pressure problem. End result? It runs hotter than it needs to in claustrophobic configurations

Other Thoughts: Currently used as thus:

Lianl-Li Q11-B Mini-ITX Tower Case
Zotac Z68ITX-A-E DDR3 / Socket 1155 Wifi Board
Intel Core i3-2105 3.1GHz HT 65W Dual-Core
Scythe Kozuti 40mm Heatsink Fan (Rated to 65W)
Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 8GB
Gigabyte UD GeForce GTX 560 Ti Graphics Adapter

1 out of 5 eggsMounting hardware is cheap metal and parts did not work together.

Pros: Fan is reasonably quiet, though not the best. It's about as audible as your typical laptop fan on full blast. I'm sure it's fine on speed control inside a case though. (I was only able to test it full-tilt using a test power supply with no voltage control.)

Cons: Mounting hardware is nonfunctional. Didn't even make it to install.

It has adapter brackets to convert to socket 1155, right? Well three of the four mounting holes in the heatsink block weren't bored correctly, and stripped the screws on the way in. As I was testing the last good screw on the last untested hole in the heatsink block, mild pressure trying to turn the screw also bored out the phillips head. The screw was still only half of the way in, and had to be removed with pliers. I can't attach the adapter brackets, so I can't install the heatsink.

Other Thoughts: I've put together plenty of stuff over the years. Positive I had the correct bits in the correct places, and I was careful that the screw was aligned correctly. They all started out fine, and then started stripping their threads 1/3 of the way in. One screw went in fine, and three identical screws in the other holes ripped their threads.

3 out of 5 eggslow profile!

Pros: - low profile
- heatpipes

Cons: - pretty big in the other 2 dimensions

Other Thoughts: My JetWay JNC84E-LF mb is spinning this thing at 3685 rpm and it's LOUD! Probably it would be as silent as others report if I could reduce the rpm but the mb does not provide much control.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: None

Cons: Don't even think about buying this if you're going to use it for an AMD FM1 cpu. The screws they provide for attaching the heat sync to the metal plates do not screw it. They screw in 1/4 of the way and the plates are left completely loose.

4 out of 5 eggsKozuti CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks like it would have done the job....But beware, its too low profile for my Motherboard. It hits both heats sinks on both sides, Memory fins and The heatsink on board.
It would have been perfect for the price. No problems at all returning it. I took one star away due to newegg not giving me a upc printout untill the second email. Newegg was a bit slow getting back to me. I needed a cooler and couldnt wait on new egg. First email was just the address...So Im out $8.00. No big deal...I will still buy from newegg.

Cons: Very low profile...other than it not fitting my board...Thats not the cooler companies fault. I should have measured

4 out of 5 eggsawesome

Pros: the fan is a great pairing for the size of the heat pipe and makes very effiecent use of the air flow. its very quiet even at a moderate speed. keeps my i5 2500 at 43c and 55c under average load.

Cons: The installation was not as easy as it could be, and instructions were lacking. The screw holes to mount the bracket were filled with some dried oil from the manufacturing process making the screws VERY difficult to screw in place. When doing this, make sure you use a GOOD screw driver and take your time, otherwise you'll risk stripping the screws.

Other Thoughts: This was perfect for my ITX build with only about 45mm of clearance for the hseatsink and fan.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat low-pro CPU cooling solution for cramped spaces

Pros: Built an AMD mobile rig with this cooler, and man is it a wonder! VERY tightly fit into a case that's got only 2.6" of clearance between base and cover, but it sealed with ease, even with the MB risers. Fan is ultra-quiet at 50% load.

Rig consists of an A6-3500 APU, SSD, and 8GB of DDR3-1866 RAM (4x2) running typical apps, I don't see there being a need for a case fan unless a discrete graphics card is installed. The fan could be turned into either a push or pull, depending on the case cooling solution (or lack thereof).

Would definitely recommend! Will certainly buy again when ready to build the twin rig for the "other" car :)

Cons: The heat pipes could prove to be a tight fit against MB heatsinks but worked out just fine with the MB I used with NO modification (AsusF1A75-I, another GREAT product). Nothing a thick swathe of thermal paste couldn't fix.
