Apsalus Is Scythe New Closed-Loop Liquid Cooler




There are several ways to describe the new product from Scythe: closed-loop liquid cooler, all-in-one liquid cooler, self-contained cooling unit, etc.

That means that, despite using a fluid instead of air, it does not need a reservoir and extra pumps to keep the temperature of CPUs low. Speaking of CPUs, the Apsalus liquid cooler (APSALUS3-120) supports not just AMD AM3(+), AM2(+) and FM2/FM1 CPUs and APUs, but LGA 1155/1156/2011/1366 central processing units from Intel as well. Even so, the product is still an entry-level item, meaning that it is actually cheap compared to most others.

Though only available in Japan for now, its tag of 6,980 Yen ($84 / 65 Euro) is enviable. The base of Scythe's liquid cooler measures 72.3 x 72.3 x 27.3 mm (2.84 x 2.84 x 1.07 inches), the radiator 120 x 150 x 27 mm (4.72 x 5.90 x 1.06 inches) and the coolant pipes 326 mm (12.83 inches). A 120mm Scythe fan chills the radiator.
