Scythe Mugen-2 CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award


Continuing our CPU cooler review series, this time we tested Mugen-2 from Scythe. It is a huge cooler, with five individual tower heatsinks, each one connected to the base by one U-shape copper heatpipe, with a 120 mm fan blowing air on them.

By the way, Mugen stands for "infinity" in Japanese.

The Mugen-2’s box is big, but the impressive thing is the fact that when we open it, we notice the cooler is pratically the same size of the box, because there are no thick foam paddles that are used by some other coolers.

Inside the box we found the cooler, the fan (not installed), user manual, installation hardware and a small bag of gray thermal compound.
