Scythe Mugen 2 CPU Cooler Review

Today we look at the second generation Mugen, or Infinity, cooler from Scythe. In a nearly 1-year development period, the concept of Mugen was completely revised and further developed. Mugen 2 is based on the latest cooling technology and was produced using highest Japanese quality standards. Let’s see how the new and improved Mugen 2 handles our Intel Core i7 test system.


The Mugen 2 features newly developed M.A.P.S. or Multiple Air Pass-Through Structure which allows the cooler to take full advantage of the 120mm Slipstream fan. The Mugen 2 also has the ability to use multiple fans; up to four 120mm fans can be mounted to the Mugen 2. This also helps in mounting the cooler to your favorite CPU socket as you are able to mount the fan on the cooler on any side. To help simplify installation the Mugen 2 comes with a single mounting back plate dubbed F.M.S.B. The Flip Mount Super Back-Plate allows the Mugen 2 to mount to all of today's most popular CPU sockets.

Very very nice cooler. However I still prefer the HDT coolers, such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 PLUS.
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2Ghz @ 1.16V (CPU-Z + LinX)
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H F14 BIOS
ASUS GTX 460 768MB @ 800/1950
Kingston HyperX DDR3 8GB @ DDR-1333
Corsair AX750
Crucial M4 128GB
Western Digital Black 1TB
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ EVO
BenQ E2420HD

I have two of theses mugen 2 coolers and I think your review is spot on, the fan is questionable, it has impressive output as a stand alone fan but does not preform well when used with a radiator/heat sink. I have a few extra fans and most of them preform better than the one that came with the cooler.
