Let’s go back to that “Zero Tolerance” statement from the beginning. If I was to compare the Mugen 5 in relation to that, then I’d have to say Scythe is doing exactly what they set out to do. Of course I also have to judge the cooler by my own standards and this cooler passes all my expectations with flying colors. I can’t find one thing to complain about. My only request at this point is that Scythe brings this level of detail to CLCs and RGB coolers.
As always, we have to look at the pricing and see if Scythe is keeping things reasonable. Amazon has the B Revision and it’s only $48. At one point in time, that might have been a bit pricey, but coolers have been going up in price over the years. Anything under $50 isn’t too bad now. This means that the final step of meeting this reviewer’s demands is met. That’s a very reasonable price for a top tier unit. If you’re debating grabbing the Scythe Mugen 5 CPU cooler, there is no reason you should hesitate.
Needless to say I love computer hardware. With my reviews, I never forget what it's like trying to find parts on a tight budget and how excited I am about any new component I get my hands on. If there was a good effort in the design, then I'll find a reason why each component is great for someone!
