Hey, our friends at Crazy PC sent me the new Scythe Mine CPU cooler for review. I've reviewed a few Scythe products in the past and found them to be some pretty good stuff. The Scythe Mine cooler is another tall heat pipe style CPU cooler that seems to be very popular lately. Other Scythe CPU coolers I have reviewed have performed well and looked pretty cool, let's find out if the Mine is just as good. One thing to note about the Mine is that it also fits the new AM2 socket, but alas, I'm not that good to get one of those for review apparently...
I would like to thank the gang at Crazy PC for sending the Scythe Mine over for review today!

As usual the gang over at Crazy PC did an excellent job on the packaging. I might go as far as to call it overkill with the peanuts, but it served its purpose it got to me in one piece. I would rather have too much packaging than not enough, besides I save the peanuts and reuse them to ship other things with. Peanuts can be expensive...
Like other Scythe packaging I have seen, the Mines' package is an attention getter, from the snow covered mountains in the background to the Japanese characters found on various places of the box, the packaging will get your attention.
