Big Shuriken 3
The Big Shuriken was redesigned with the aim of increasing the cooling capacity while maximizing the compatibility with modern systems. The new cooler differs significantly from its predecessors, both in terms of appearance and general structure. It is able to deliver outstanding cooling performance for compact high-end ITX and HTPC systems despite its height of only 69 mm. The asymmetrical design of the heat sink, in which the base plate is laterally offset, has achieved optimal compatibility. The new Kaze Flex 120 Slim RGB PWM fan with translucent fan blades and controllable RGB LED lighting is used for effective ventilation with an attractive and colorful appearance.
The re-designed Big Shuriken 3 RGB has significantly improve the compatibility by shifting the base-plate to the side in contrast to regular designs with centered base-plates. In order to avoid collisions with the I/O shields of motherboards, the entire cooling fin stack has been revamped. Thanks to this new asymmetrical heatsink design, Big Shuriken 3 is able to deliver unrestricted RAM compatibility and distinguishes itself as the perfect cooling solution for high-end HTPC and ITX systems.
The cooler is equipped with a 15mm Kaze Flex Slim RGB fan. The 4-pin 12V RGB connector allows the fan to be synchronized and controlled by RGB motherboards for vivid and multiple lighting effects (16.8 million colors). Compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, MSI Mystic, Gigabyte, Asrock.
The new 3rd-generation Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S. III) centers around a preassembled mounting bar with spring-loaded screws that guarantees perfect contact pressure. Together with an updated backplate and rubber / plastic spacers, the system offers a convenient and user-friendly installation process and is compatible to all current sockets including AM4 from AMD™ and LGA 2066 from Intel™.
