Scythe Mugen 2: New CPU cooler introduced
The Mugen 2, Scythe's remake of the popular tower cooler, is said to be aimed at silent fans as well as overclockers.
Scythe's Mugen 2 weights 870 grams and is equipped with a 120 mm fan running at 1,400 revolutions per minute. Thus the cooler is 50 grams lighter than the first Mugen which has fewer fins though. Scythe also nickel-plates the copper cooler plate of the Mugen2.
Scythe dismissed the push-pins for the Mugen 2 and uses a system called F.M.S.B. (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate), which contains a fixation via a plate on the backside of the motherboard.
The Scythe Mugen 2 fits onto the sockets 754,939,940, AM2(+), 478, 775 and 1366. The dimensions of the cooler are 130 x 100 x 158 millimeters and the recommended retail price of the Scythe Mugen 2 is 39.90 Euros.
