Whilst the minimalist aesthetic and form factor may not be for all, this should please some in the SFF Keyboards forum thread.  Eschewing a numpad, function keys, amongst much more, this is simplicity. As a 104 key enthusiast (I demand a numpad!), this isn’t my thing, but to each their own! …

Scythe Updates a Legend – the Big Shuriken 3 CPU Cooler Launched

Comment: The Scythe Big Shuriken 2B has been a highly recommended CPU cooler for those seeking high performance CPU cooling in a SFF rig for some time. As time went on though, new coolers dominated the market, leaving the Big Shuriken to nostalgia status in many use cases. Scythe has been working on an update behind the scenes, and a long awaited one. Finally, AM4 support, a redesigned fan (hopefully with a better motor design.. no more melty motors). However, the upgrades have come at a cost – the former model measured in at 58 mm tall, and the revision …
