Interestingly, the UK importer of Scythe products says they have no plans to stock this cooler. They did have Kotetsu's when it was first released, so I'm not sure what to make of that. Poor sales?

If you have a such a communication, and you still want one, you should just write to Scythe EU: I'm pretty sure that if you want it, they will send you a Kotetsu (I think for the MSRP, so about 23Gbp + VAT, you may order even a second fan and mounting brackets for about 5Gbp for a push-pull config).
Shipping charge from them (Germany) to me (Italy) have always been very reasonable, so I think they should be similar even to UK.

I have found at least one UK retailer who has the Kotetsu in stock, although only the one. It is listed at £26.40 which seems good value. The main competitor in this price bracket is probably the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO which from most outlets is a couple of pounds cheaper than the Scythe.

Good find lodestar! I tried Dabs, ebuyer, eBay et al but didn't think to try the smaller retailers.

I need to replace the Scythe cooler in an old E6400 computer as the push-fit clips in the mobo no longer hold and it needs a 2kg weight on top to make it work :o The Kotetsu looks performan t and cheap, so seems ideal.

I have and forwarded the response from their importer and asked for a price. I don't get it: as one of the best performing coolers SPCR has tested, why is the Kotetsu not imported here?

In case, I would have put an even more straight question to them: "As it isn't stocked here, can I order one directly from you?".

Anyway, if you opened a ticket filling the sales team contact form at: http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/company/contact.html I guess either herr Dirk Meier or herr Viktor Dillmann should get back in touch with you.

Impressive how it has come down in pice now, Scythe Cooling Motherboard SCKTT-1000 $37.39 free shipping, its starting to get into the 212 range, and with its performance and good included fan, seems like the best cooler in the market.
