Published by Hiwa Pouri on 15.04.14 (51796 reads)
With the IORI Scior 1000, Scythe has made a low-profile down-draft cooler, that is surprisingly well built, especially if we consider its price of 25 Euro. Other than that it should offer decent cooling capacity, so it's not going to be an issue if you want to overclock your CPU by a few hundred MHz. So far we're rather curious to see what this cooler is capable of.
Today we have a chance to check out the Scythe IORI Scior-1000, which is quite an interesting CPU air cooler. The Scythe IORI Scior-1000 is a low-profile CPU cooler design which features a total of three 6mm cooper-heatpipes. It is basically a low-profile cooler, which comes with an all nickel-plated copper base, while the heatsink is cooled by a 100mm PWM fan. We are looking at a low-profile cooler which features decent manufacturing quality but still comes at a reasonable price.
As noted earlier, the base is made from nickel-plated copper and the heatpipes on the Scythe IORI Scior-1000 are all made from copper while the heatsink is made from aluminum. It features three heatpipes with 6 millimeter diameter which are not in direct contact with the CPU but have been routed through the nickel-plated copper base. The IORI Scior-1000 cooler is designed and suited for small-form-factor builds. The heatsink fins are made from aluminum and since this is a low-profile model, the dimensions are kept as small as possible. The manufacturing quality is high, which is a pleasant surprise since we are looking at a budget cooler. The base of the IORI Scior-1000 does not feature a perfect mirror finish. The bundled 100mm PWM fan features a new design, specially developed for the IORI Scior-1000.
The bundle and the box are also quite simple. The box is made out of solid cardboard and although it is only protected by a plastic shroud our sample arrived without a single dent or any damage whatsoever. The bundled fan is not attached to the tower while the rest of the mounting components are placed in a separate plastic bag. The bundle includes an installation manual, mounting components, two fan clips. The IORI Scior-1000 comes with thermal compound in a small bag, a 100x25mm PWM fan and of course the heatsink itself.
