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.

“ORDERING

Ordered Sentinel fanless PC with monitor and speakers. Original estimate to assemble my order was 10 days, but it was ready in about 5. Was kept well informed of delivery progress by emails and texts. Products very well packaged and arrived in tip-top condition in a single large carton.

Sentinel PC a beautiful piece of kit - thick aluminium case that could withstand a regional nuclear war, top-quality components throughout, elegant and very compact design - resembles a top-end hi-fi amplifier.

So nice to get the Windows OS disk and all driver disks included as well. Shouldn’t ever need them, but great to have them just in case. Good Quiet PC manual supplied that explains what all the components are and how to fit additional ones should you desire to.

SETUP

Two teething problems during initial set-up:

1. BenQ monitor did not default to HDMI so had no picture when I plugged in. One phone call to Quiet PC put this right in seconds - just needed to find monitor button to change input mode.

2. Cable to connect secondary hard-drive had been omitted. Again, one phone call and was straight through to a very apologetic and knowledgeable service engineer who talked me through identifying the problem. Cable arrived by post the next day and I fitted it myself - not that I needed it to set-up and use the PC anyway.

Despite these minor glitches, PC so much more pleasant to set up than any other I have owned because totally free from junkware - no trial versions of antivirus programs or other unwanted craplications nagging you to buy and upgrade, no pre-installed browser toolbars or homepages that default to the manufacturer or try to force you to use some absurd search engine or “app store” just because someone bunged someone a wodge of cash, etc. You get the OS and that’s it - pure and clean.

Also, how fantastic to be able to pick up the phone and call the engineers directly. No queues, no call centres, no impenetrable accents, no read-from-a-set-menu answers; you’re directly through to the people who built your PC.

IN USE

PC is as quiet as a Trappist monk on a sponsored silence walking in soft shoes on deep-pile carpet. Can’t even hear a mains hum. Only the optical drive makes any (brief) noises (when it has a CD/DVD/BlueRay disk inside).

It’s amazing what a difference this lack of noise makes to a room in a house. After this, I’ll never go back to a PC with fans - failure-prone, humming, buzzing dust-suckers. Fan-free is the future.

Fitted with a SSD primary drive, the speed of the PC is astonishing. Goes like slop off a shovel. Reboot? Blink and you’ll miss it.

CONCLUSION

Pricey, but a truly top-quality unit and terrific customer support. Worth every penny.”
