Scythe Mugen 2 Rev.B
Cooling a PC is very important, and arguably the most important part in running a computer, especially if you’re into high performance. The sort of cooling you have can determine how high you can overclock, how cool your CPU will run, noise levels, and it can also determine the other parts for your system such as which case to buy. It’s more often than not a battle between cooler temperatures and low noise. The bigger coolers are generally capable of lower temps with less noise, but they also have some of the more difficult installs, require motherboard removal for backplate installation and can limit the cases you have available to use.
The best coolers have easy installations, great temps, silence and expandability. Of course, no cooler can be perfect, but high marks in these categories generally indicate a very nice cooler indeed. Price, too, is a big part of the picture, though it is more dependent on the other features.
Obviously, we like to see a balance between everything – good temps, decent expandability, and a very good price. It’s hard to recommend even the best heatsink if the price is too high. This is why we see a balancing act between all these qualities.
Today we’ve got the Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B cooler, priced very well and comes with room for up to 4 fans, though only one is included. It’s also quite massive. Let’s see how it does.
