Scythe came to the U.S. in 2004 after being founded in Japan in 2002. Scythe set out to develop a super powerful yet super quiet CPU cooler. Scythe recently sent us the Katana II CPU cooler, which carries on the ideas of their initial venture. The Katana II features a 100mm fan, three heatpipes, and a vertical design. I'm going to put it to the test.

Years ago, I remember buying many Sunbeam-branded cold cathode fluorescent lights (CCFL). Since that time, they've expanded their product offers several times over. You can find cases, power supplies, keyboards, and more all bearing the Sunbeam name. Tuniq is a new divison of Sunbeam, and they offer many similar products, but with a much more enthusiast-like focus. They sent us some of their new thermal compound, Tuniq TX-2.
