Japanese cooling expert Scythe presents the fifth version of the Mugen CPU Cooler, which has been fitted with significant improvements. The Mugen has been one of the most popular CPU coolers on the market for a long time. Scythe was able to ramp up the performance even further with Mugen 5 and at the same time equip the heatsink with a unique new fan. Supplied Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan features noise reduction rubber-insulators in the corners, dynamic fan speed range from 300 to 1.200 rpm as well as a brand-new Sealed Precision FDB bearing, allowing smooth and silent operation at all times.

Scythe's engineering team took the user feedback and applied it on the revamped design of Mugen 5! The heatsink of the Mugen 5 is based on 6 high-quality all-copper heatpipes and a solid aluminum fin stack. Great compatibility to tall memory modules is achieved thanks to the new asymmetrical design of Mugen 5. The solid copper base-plate has been placed slightly shifted for this purpose, instead of centered. In addition to that, several layers of the fin stack on the back of Mugen 5 have been shortened, to further increase RAM compatibility. Mugen 5 can easily fit into most PC chassis on the market, thanks to the total height of only 154,5 mm. In order to avoid corrosion and to improve the quality, all copper-heatpipes and the copper-baseplate are nickel-plated.

Another highlight and big improvement is the newly developed Kaze Flex 120 PWM Fan. This fan model incorporates Scythe’s new self-contained liquid Sealed Precision FDB bearing, which reduces friction and wear significantly and offers average lifespan of 120.000 hours! This fan model supports PWM and offers flexible fan control from ultra-silent 300 RPM up to moderate 1.200 RPM. This speed range allows steady airflow from 28,2 to 86,93m³/h, respectively 16,6 to 51,17 CFM. The Kaze Flex 120 PWM Fan is equipped with rubber-insulators at the corners, which prevent the transfer of vibration from the fan to Mugen 5 heatsink, resulting in greater stability and lower noise levels. Mugen 5 comes with a second fan clip set, for users that prefer to use a push-pull setup with two fans.

Mugen 5 is equipped with the second generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S. II). The small yet powerful improvements make the mounting process more user-friendly and simple at the same time. The preassembled metal mounting bar is used in combination with a solid backplate and assures solid and safe fit. Spring-loaded screws prevent uneven distribution of pressure. The Mugen 5 supports all important CPU sockets, including the Intel® Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 and LGA2011(V3) as well as AMD® Sockets AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1 and FM2(+). The package contains all required clips for mounting, two fan clip sets, long screw driver, user-manual as well as a package of thermal grease.

Scythe Mugen 5 with the Model-No. SCMG-5000 is available as of today on the European market with the MSRP of 40,50 € (VAT/Taxes not included).
