Scythe Intros Mugen 4 CPU Cooler

Japanese cooling expert Scythe is introducing the successor of its Mugen 3 CPU cooler. Mugen 4 brings a brand new tower-style fin structure design, an optimized heatsink, as well as a greatly improved and simplified mounting mechanism.

Scythe engineers improved the Mugen 3 design with special focus on more compact heatsink dimensions combined with better performance in order to elevate the Mugen to the next level. The outcome is a high-end CPU cooler with the compact dimensions of 5.11 x 3.46 x 6.16 in. (130 x 88 x 156.45 mm) and the weight of 1.37 lb. (625 g), allowing the Mugen 4 to be installed in virtually every computer. Although the heatsink size and weight have been reduced, the performance could be further boosted compared to the predecessor. This was achieved thanks to the newly developed T-M.A.P.S. (Three-dimensional Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure) fin structure, which increases the airflow inside the cooling heatsink allowing immensely improved performance.

In the process of improving the performance, the Scythe Glide Stream case fan series played an important role. The supplied 120 mm model supports the PWM standard, allowing the fan speed to be adjusted individually according to the CPU temperature by the motherboard. Thanks to this, a very wide fan speed range from 400 to 1,400 rpm with airflow between 20.7 and 79 cfm can be utilized. Low noise level between 5.3 and 28dBA make the Glide Stream case fan even more suited for the new Mugen 4 allowing it to be even more silent than the predecessor. Users seeking even higher performance are able to use the second fan clip set, which is supplied, to attach a second fan and create a “push-pull” configuration.

Mugen 4 is first to come with the newly developed “Hyper Precision Mounting System” (H.P.M.S.). Hence making the mounting procedure much easier and faster than before. Compatibility to the AMD sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, and FM2, as well as the Intel sockets LGA 775, 1155, 1156, 1366, and 2011 is assured. In addition, the new LGA 1150 (Intel “Haswell”) socket is fully supported. All required mounting clips and screws are supplied with the Scythe Mugen 4, including one wrench, a multi-lingual manual, and quality thermal grease.

Scythe Mugen 4 is available on the market as of this week with a suggested retail price of 36.00 euros.
