Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm Fans

Packaging and A Closer Look

Packaging and A Closer Look

I have always been a fan of Scythe's packaging for their fans. They stand out very well and always look professional; the fact that you can physically see what you're getting for your money is a nice feature of the packaging too.

The Ultra Kaze packaging is extremely sturdy and I'd have absolutely no concerns about the fans arriving safely on your doorstep, even with the most incompetent courier possible. With the fan firmly sandwiched in a cardboard surround and further protected by a thick plastic shroud on the outside, it could take quite a considerable battering or even a dose of wet weather and still remain protected.

Opening up the packaging you are greeted by the Ultra Kaze fan, which I must admit looks really impressive with its 38mm shroud. Scythe has also included a 3- to 4-pin connector and 4 fan screws.

Let's take a closer look...

A Closer Look

The Ultra Kaze' fans really look the part and border on looking very similar to the high air-flow Delta's thanks to their increased thickness.

You will notice that Scythe has not included any sleeving on the fan cable, but I guess this would simply add to the cost. Alternatively, it means that you can choose to sleeve it with any colour that you prefer.

In the image immediately above you can see the difference between the Scythe Ultra Kaze and an Scythe S-FLEX cooling fan. Big difference...and a lot sexier in my opinion. The Ultra Kaze is the meat and potatoes fan for the cooling enthusiast; short of the Delta anyway.

So will the Scythe Ultra Kaze be able to provide the increased static pressure that Scythe market them by? Well over the next few pages we hope to answer this for you. First up let's head over the page to quickly run over some theory...

Very sweet fans, great review Matt as usual!!! Looks like I know which fans I'll be using for my next build. I bet those Ultra 3000's in push/pull around a triple 120mm rad would be amazing.Quote

Thanks weihk and Fraggles.

@ FragTek: Yeah those Ultra 3000 would work perfectly in a push/pull config. Just make sure you run them at 7v though aight Quote
