Scythe has unveiled a new processor cooler beast for the latest Intel and AMD platforms, the SCMG-2000 Mugen 2. This model features a nickel-plated copper base, five copper heatpipes and lots of aluminum fins. The Scythe Mugen 2 ships with a 120mm fan with a max airflow of 74.25CFM and noise level of 26.50dBA, but you can mount up to four 120mm fans onto the heatsink!
The Scythe Mugen 2 measures 130mm x 100mm x 158mm and weighs 870g. You can check the full specs at Scythe. The Mugen 2 should be available in stores for $39.50 (33.50EUR, excluding VAT).
The successful concept of Mugen CPU cooler was further developed for Scythe Mugen 2 in a very consistent way. For this, the experience of Scythe engineers was a great influence as well as improvement suggestions from users of the former Scythe Mugen. Compared with the old Mugen, the number of cooling fins has been increased and at the same time, the weight was decreased by 50 g.
To ensure optimal fitting of the cooler on the mainboard, Scythe Mugen 2 uses a novel Back Plate/Screws solution with the name Flip Mount Super Back-Plate (F.M.S.B.). This mounting system is compatible with all current sockets including the new Intel LGA1366.
Scythe Mugen 2 CPU coolers is based on a completely new lamellar structure. So-called Multiple Airflow pass-through structure (M.A.P.S.) has been aerodynamically optimized and allows an optimum heat transfer via the supplied Slip Stream 120 mm PWM fan (0 - 26.5 dBA at 74,25 CFM / 126 m³/h max.). For the user, this means: High performance at low speed - and little noise level!
As with the former Scythe Mugen, the fans can be mounted at four different positions. Regarding to their needs, users can customize the air flow inside of their case and arrange the fan with the available space. Maximum of four fans can be assembled at the same time, the fan clips needed for additional fans have to be purchased separately.
