The Scythe Mine Rev.B is a funny looking cooler, with a 100mm fan
at the center and two separate columns of aluminum cooling fins on either side.
This Scythe heatsink (model no. SCMN-1100) makes use of one large fan to pull
air into the heatsink and then expel it. The aluminum fins
have a shape oddly resembling the geometry of a stealth
fighter, and that seems to work just as well at making the Scythe Mine Rev.B
a very quiet heatsink under power. The fan rotates at a fixed speed of 1500 RPM,
yet there are no thermal throttling or PWM speed controls. In typical Scythe
fashion, this heatsink has been designed with an eye towards
thermal efficiency and user-friendliness, leaving entirely cosmetic
attributes to the wayside.
