Scythe Kabuto SCKBT-1000
So many of today's aftermarket cooling solutions have adopted the 'U' tower design for their products that it's become a rare occasion to see a CPU cooler break the mold. The Scythe Kabuto cooler uses an included 120mm Slip-Stream 1300RPM fan, which is great for moderate airflow with minimal noise. Because of the large footprint, the Scythe Kabuto is relegated to using the stock Intel push-pin style clip mounting system. While this doesn't provide the best contact pressure, it does allow installation without removing the motherboard.
The Scythe Kabuto SCKBT-1000 is really one heatsink atop another, with a solid aluminum heatsink venting up from the base and connected to the large aluminum finsink by six large-gauge heatpipe rods. As of October 2009, the Scythe Kabuto SCKBT-1000 kit is available at NewEgg for $44.99.

About Scythe USA
So who is Scythe? What do they do? Many of you are asking this question while surfing our website. Scythe Co., Ltd. (Registered & incorporated in Tokyo Japan) originally started in Akihabara Electric Town located in Tokyo Japan, where visitors can find the latest electric products from computer parts and accessories to the world's most advanced cellular phones with video camera capabilities, small displays and the ability to play movies!
Scythe Co., Ltd., began its operation and business in November, 2002 as a distributor and manufacture of PC parts & gaming devices for "DIY PC Experts!". For more information about Scythe Japan HQ, please visit the website at: www.scythe.co.jp (If you read Japanese!). Scythe's first venture was to manufacture a super powerful YET super quiet CPU cooler (Scythe Kamakaze CPU cooler), and with the great success of this Kamakaze CPU cooler, Scythe became recognized as the leading CPU cooler supplier in Japan's Akihabara Electric Town. Shortly there after, due to popular demand, Scythe began exporting products all over the world.
In April of 2004 Scythe USA began local operations by establishing an office in Northern California. In October of 2004 Scythe USA moved operations to LA in order to work more closely with manufactures and streamline logistics to better service our US based partners.
