Asymmetrical Design for Outstanding Compatibility
Big Shuriken 3 RGB has been completely re-designed with the goal to significantly improve the compatibility. This has been achieved by shifting the base-plate to the sides 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 RGB is able to deliver unrestricted RAM compatibility and distinguishes itself as the perfect cooling solution for high-end HTPC and ITX systems.
Kaze Flex 120 Slim RGB PWM Fan
In order to keep the Big Shuriken 3 RGB as low as possible, the cooler uses a slim fan from the Kaze Flex 120 series with a height of 17 mm. Despite this low height, the fan is not only equipped with a self-contained fluid dynamic bearing (FDB), but also with RGB LEDs below the fan hub. These LEDs illuminate the translucent fan blades. As usual from the tried and tested Kaze Flex series, this model is also equipped with rubber decouplers. However, they are colored black, to keep the entire frame in tone.
Versatile Fan Mounting
For the cases, where more performance is required and enough headroom for extra height is available, users are able to equip the Big Shuriken 3 RGB with a regular aftermarket 120 mm case fan with 25 mm thickness. The required set of screws is part of the scope of delivery and allows a fast installation process out of the box.
H.P.M.S. III Mounting System
Big Shuriken 3 RGB comes with the secure and user-friendly third generation Hyper Precision Mounting System, which centers around a preassembled mounting bar with spring-loaded screws to guarantee perfect contact pressure. In combination with an updated backplate and rubber / plastic spacers, the system is able to offer a convenient installation process and compatibility to all current sockets including socket AM4 from AMD and the socket LGA 2066 from Intel.
