Sycthe heatsink bases are usually very well finisihed. The Zipang's base is no exception.

The base is smooth and flat with no noticeable defects.

LGA775 mounting frame installed.

Scythe employs three simple mounting frames that attach via screws — one of their trademarks. Unfortunately, Scythe continues to use push-pins for LGA775 mounting. We get nervous everytime we see them on a cooler of the Zipang's weight.


The heatsink installed without any complications. The overhang of the fins is high enough over the base to leave room to reach in and access the pins without too much trouble. Unless you have big hands, it's not too hard. The end results was a snug, tight fit.
