Scythe Choten TUF Gaming Alliance CPU Cooler

If you are looking for a top down CPU cooler that is virtually silent and offers great performance you would be hard-pressed to find anything better than Scythe’s Choten TUF.

Features

  1. Asus approved TUF Gaming Alliance CPU cooler
  2. Features H.P.M.S. mounting system
  3. Exceptionally quiet, from only 4.0 dBA
  4. Equipped with a RGB Kaze Flex PWM fan
  5. Intel and AMD compatible

In cooperation with Asus, Scythe presents the TUF Gaming Alliance version of the Choten CPU cooler. Design elements such as a side plate decorated with the TUF logo as well as a 120mm RGB LED Kaze Flex fan with matching yellow rubber decouplers connect the cooler with the remaining TUF Gaming Alliance components. During the development of the Choten, Scythe’s focus was not only on excellent performance, but also on unrestricted compatibility with RAM. The asymmetric design coupled with a large gap between the motherboard and heatsink ensures excellent compatibility with large memory modules. The cooler features a preinstalled Kaze Flex RGB 120 PWM fan, giving the Choten CPU cooler a total height of only 122 mm, allowing it to easily fit into the majority of PC cases. This mix of good performance, high compatibility and high-quality axial fan makes the Choten an attractive CPU cooler for compact but demanding systems.

H.P.M.S. III (Hyper Precision Mounting System III)

The secure and user-friendly Hyper Precision Mounting system centers around a preassembled mounting bar, which features spring-loaded screws to guarantee a perfect contact pressure. In combination with an updated backplate and rubber / plastic spacers the system offers a convenient installation process and compatibility to all current platforms.

Kaze Flex 120 PWM Fan

The Choten is equipped with a PWM fan from the award-wining Kaze Flex series, operating in a range from 300 to 1200 RPM. The self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB) reduces friction and wear to a minimum, resulting in an average lifespan of 120,000 hours. Rubber pads mounted in the fan frame have a decoupling effect that dampen the transfer of vibrations.

Asymmetrical and low height design

Aiming for maximum compatibility the heatsink is not centered above the baseplate, but slightly offset to the side and back. This asymmetrical design allows for unrestricted use of all memory slots. It also points the heatsink away from the graphics card, leaving enough space for even the bulkiest GPU coolers. With a compact height of only 154 mm the Choten easily fits all standard PC Cases.

“Excellent product and service”

“I purchased this Thermolab Trinity cpu cooler to replace the Intel cpu cooler supplied with an Intel Pentium D processor 830 3 GHz LGA775.

The problem with the Intel cooler was that it was just so noisy - it was a real pain having to listen to it all day.

Installing the Trinity was a fairly major undertakiing, because you have to take out the motherboard. That is because the Trinity has a backplate which is mounted on the underside of the motherboard and which bolts through to secure the main cooler on the cpu side of the board.

I think it would be extremely unlikely that you could install this without removing the motherboard and, in my system, an Intel D945GNT system board mounted in an Acousticase AC 6607 case, this also involved taking out the hard drives and the psu.

In all it took me over three hours to install this cooler - although how long it takes will depend a lot on your particular system and how used you are to taking it all apart.

Howeever, having made the effort, it was definitely worthwhile.

The new cooler is virtually silent and it is wonderful not to have to spend all day listening to the Intel cooler fan whining away.

Monitoring showed that the Intel cooler fan was doing about 4800 rpm against the Trinity at typically 600 rpm or so - which accounts for why it is quieter; the bigger fan rotates more slowly to move the same volume of air. And, of course, it has a much bigger radiator, which I am sure helps.

The comfort levels around the machine have now inproved dramatically.

Also, the temperature levels seem good - I wasn’t monitoring them closely before I changed coolers, but the monitororing I’m doing now suggests that they are down on what they were before.

Also, excellent technical support and service from Quiet PC.

All in all, an excellent product and well worth the effort of installing it.”
