Scythe SCZP-1000 139mm CPU Cooler

  • 1000 ±10% RPM
  • 51.82 CFM
ICON Loading...

"Zipang" is an archaic name for Japan, but there is nothing archaic about the SCZP-1000 Zipang CPU cooler from Scythe. This fan and heatsink combination incorporates several of the latest developments in thermal solutions. Six copper heatpipes curve up from the nickel-plated copper base to raise the horizontal array of convection fins up over the extruded aluminum base cap. The heatpipes are configured to use the new Uneven Parallel Heatpipe Construction.

At the top of the assembly lies an ultra-quiet 139mm fan which blows nearly 52 CFM of cooling air through the array of fins as well as onto adjacent components on the motherboard. At its full 1000 RPM it generates only 21 dBA of noise. The Zipang is configured to support the full range of Intel Socket LGA 775 and 478 processors as well as AMD CPUs using the Socket 754, 939, 940, AM2 and AM2+ configuration.

  • newegg Superior Heat Dissipation and Cooling Performance Six heatpipes integrated with UPHC (Uneven Parallel Heatpipe Construction) technology and high-density fins maximize heat transfer and dissipation. Plus a huge 139mm cooling fan runs efficiently to deliver unparalleled cooling performance.
  • newegg Universal Socket Compatibility The Scythe SCZP-1000 features broad compatibility with AMD socket 754, 939, 940, AM2 and AM2+ platforms, as well as Intel socket 478 and LGA 775 platforms.

4 out of 5 eggsHUGE but almost silent

Pros: Keeps CPU VERY cool even under heavy load and whisper quiet.

Cons: Did I mention it was HUGE! Ok, slow fan speed but big fan = massive amounts of air moved with little to no whine and/or vibration, but getting it installed required two people and knocking out part of the case back. A previous post listed the size and I measured to make sure it fit.

The real problem is if you have those stupid push/twist lock insertions for the INTEL chips you need space to get your HAND in there too. I solved the problem on the back two by taking out a metal puchout spot for expansion items on my case and reaching through that with a pair of forcepts.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: Excellent build quality. Fan is absolutely quiet running at its' full 1000rpm. Does what top-down coolers are supposed to do which is cool the CPU and the surrounding components. My ram temps dropped over 10c (measured with thermo-probe between the middle two modules) and Northbridge by a few.

Very good cooling of the CPU too. I'm running the 6000+ 3.1 (oc to 3.25) and it never breaks 45C under Prime. The Brisbane cores are weird trying to get accurate temp measurements with software apps and I tried all free ones with no satisfaction. Resorted to a probe from the Scythe fan controller stuck in the bottom-most slot of the heat sink. Reads within 3C of Bios reported temps so I'm confident that I can count on the readout. This Zipang cools this processor just fine at an inaudible noise level. Most excellent!

Cons: I guess we could call trying to work around the girth a Con....but it is what it is and cannot be anything else and it IS a tad difficult to get the clips fastened...when compared to the wimpy stock AMD cooler. I got mine clipped in just fine after taking the video card out to gain better access to the clip. Certainly didn't need to remove the motherboard on my machine which is a Mini-Tower from HEC with MSI Micro-ATX board. The cooler clears the power supply by about a half-inch, as well as the rear fan by about the same amount. Height-wise, it clears the side cover by about a full inch, but precludes the use of the side duct with its' size and placement. Not a problem, as I closed it off and feed the cooler with the lower vents just fine.

Of course, those choosing to run the Intel versions get what they deserve with the less than stellar mounting solution (just kidding!) But, there is no dispute that the AMD's are a LOT easier to install this cooler on.

Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with the Scythe Zipang. Great design and it is amazing that something so large can fit so well in a Mini-tower.

4 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Very quiet, helps cool other components on the motherboard like the northbridge and ram (in my case). Fits in my Silverstone LC20 case (N82E168111630654) on a Abit IP35 Pro mobo (N82E16813127030).

Cons: The screws that mount the bracket to the heatsink are too short! While pushing the pins into the motherboard the screws stripped out of it and fell into the mobo. Luckilly I happened to have screws from a Scythe Ninja Mini that worked better. I think teh small thread screws used for mounting DVDRom drives would have worked as well.

It also completly blocks one of the mounting screws, but it isn't horrible since at that corner there were two screws rather close to eachother on my mobo. Smaller boards might have an issue with that.

Other Thoughts: Because this HFS is so big, you really have to plan your install and weigh your options. I was able to install this while the mobo was mounted in the case, but removing it proved impossible without removing the mobo first.

The heatsink can be placed on the CPU in any of the four directions which allows you a couple options for avoiding other mobo components and plan for better airflow over the fins.

It keeps my idle Q6600 at 44deg while stuffed in a wodden box where there is no air flow.

3 out of 5 eggsQuiet but a pain

Pros: Very quiet, cools very well.

Cons: Absolutely a pain to install. This thing is massive and barely fits in my case. Took an hour just to get this thing installed right and you have to do it while the motherboard is out of the case.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to plug in any cables around it while the motherboard is outside the case otherwise it is impossible because this cooler is so big. I can't even screw in the top 2 motherboard screws because this cooler blocks them.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best top-down fan cpu coolers!

Pros: Very good construction. Excellent top-down fan cpu cooler. Quiet, effective. Decent airflow, no issues whatsoever when used in top-down fan/airflow case configuration. Cools adjacent memory and adjacent heatsinks that are under the large fan to a slight degree.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Get the right configuration for your case/airflow. Dont mount this where a front-rear airflow is required, for instance. This is not the computer from starship enterprise that will do everything for you including thinking, but close. Best mounted with supplied thermal paste and NOT using Arctic Silver 5. Difference of -8C using supplied thermal paste as opposed to that other stuff everyone is always recommending (apparently out of ignorance and following some popular fad).

4 out of 5 eggsmixed feelings

Pros: Scythe brand known for quality products and quiet computing. this is no exception

Cons: lets just say if i have to install it ever again, i would rahter saw off my legs with spoons....maybe some blame lies with me for not installing it when mobo was out of case. its size is beyond massive.

Other Thoughts: bought openbox, came with everything as if it was new. do not think previous owner installed it.

1 out of 5 eggsBig disappointment

Pros: I'm sure this won't meet with a good reception, but the only good thing about this cooler is its mounting mechanism. Fails completely to keep temps any lower than the stock Intel cooler. And yes, the unit is perfectly installed with a reasonable dab of Arctic Silver. I'm yanking this out and replacing it with a Zalman. This is with a Wolfdale E8600 with a mild overclock on an ASUS P5E-VM HDMI. This will fit in some MicroATX enclosures but what's the point, since it's woefully inefficient?

Cons: Waste of money. Seriously. At STOCK speeds and voltages this piece of junk keeps the CPU at 48-50C idle. Absolutely unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Run, don't walk, away from this unit.

2 out of 5 eggsSilent but Deadly

Pros: Very quiet, fantastic cooling ability. Very quiet. Large enough to cool one stick of ram if installed a certain way.

Cons: Nearly impossible to install. Plastic pins VERY hard to reach under heat-sink. Took 1 hour just to install this heat-sink in motherboard. I have a 775 socket cpu.

Other Thoughts: If this product wasn't so quiet and efficient, I would have given it a 1. I find it difficult to believe they couldn't find a better install procedure for it.

3 out of 5 eggshuge!!!

Pros: quiet.

Cons: can't leave field empty, this is my way of doing that

Other Thoughts: running it on my 9450 with a stress test over a 24 hour period, i was getting the same temp reading as with the stock cooler that came with the cpu. i did not put this as a con because if you are going for extreme quiet this item can help you reach that. the cooler that came with the cpu does have a fan, therefore would be louder than this unit, not that it is loud. psu seems to be the major noise culprit of any system IMHO.

1 out of 5 eggsMeh...

Pros: It appears to be solid.

Cons: This is a follow up review.

The cake is a lie!

Seriously, It should be working a lot better then it is.

Reseated several times, Thinking that might be the problem, but no matter what I do I can't seem to get it too cool my CPU too within comfortable levels. in an air conditioned room my e8400 OC temps go as high as 58C.... anything above 52C makes me uncomfortable. I'm not even trying for any crazy OC either only took it up to 3.5GHZ.
