Scythe is widely known in the PC enthusiast crowd for their CPU coolers, specifically their Mugen line of high-performance air coolers. Scythe is back with a brand new CPU cooler in their Mugen MAX. The Mugen MAX has been redesigned with a new heatsink that should increase performance and they have moved the CPU block to increase compatibility with memory modules. Scythe says that the Mugen MAX belongs in the “XL” CPU cooler market and with dimensions of 145 x 86 x 161 mm it is one of the larger CPU coolers we have seen this year. On top of its size the Mugen MAX features six nickel-plated copper heatpipes and Scythe’s own GlideStream 140 mm cooling fan. Can this cooler compete with some of the other larger CPU coolers that we have tested this year? Read on as we find out!
