Scythe Mugen 2


Scythe Mugen 2


With the last CPU Cooler review here at XSReviews way back in October of last year, it was time for another. It comes in the form of the Scythe Mugen 2 which is a revision of the previous Mugen cooler and features Scythe’s new MAPS (Multiple Airflow Pass-through Structure) technology along with a Multi Fan Mount Structure. Read on to find out more…


  • F.M.S.B. (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate)
    The newly developed F.M.S.B. (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate) both improves the compatibility and mounting of the cooler with the motherboard. With this system, a solution was developed which is not using push pins but is instead based on a Back Plate/screws mounting set. Of course, Mugen 2 is compatible with all the current sockets, including the new Intel Socket LGA1366.
  • Multi Fan Mount Structure
    As with the former Mugen it is possible to mount the supplied fan in four different directions. By this, the user can arrange the air flow to the circumstances of his deployment area. Furthermore, a maximum of 4 fans be installed, the needed fan clips have to be bought separately.
  • M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure)
    The newly developed M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow pass-through structure) is a completely new lamellar structure, where the airflow generated by the Scythe Slip Stream 120 mm PWM fan can be used perfectly
