The Scythe Andy Samurai Warrior is a very compact CPU cooler compared to other coolers from Scythe.
Its exact dimensions can be found below...
There are aluminium fins and 6 (also alumunium) heatpipes. The
overall build quality is very good. On top there's a 120mm fan
that can easily be replaced with something better.

The base is fully made out of copper. We would like it to have a
better finish, since it has many noticeable lines and no mirror
The installation process is very simple. First you
need to mount the two Socket 775 brackets on the preset area
(left/right side), that takes no more than a couple of secs. This is
completely tool free. The mounting process also uses standard Intel
mounting screws, so no need for a motherboard backplate. This is
probably the easiest to install big sized cooler of this roundup. You
will now need a screwdriver to press the four plastic screws in order
to secure the whole cooler to the motherboard, or you could use your
thumb for this purpose. The overall weight is kept low (!), if you can
call low 685gr for a cpu cooler. The extensive use of aluminium does
bring down the overall weight. Be careful to remove the plastic sticker
on the bottom before installation.
The cooler isn't very big. However due to its design
you will be able to install it in only one way, probably with the
heatpipes on the left side (facing the memory banks) as shown
in the following picture. In general there shouldn't be many problems
with the installation, unless your motherboard has many and big
heatspreaders surrounding the CPU area.
Placing the motherboard inside the case we can notice the low height of this cooler, at least compared to other ones...
