Already at first sight the Mugen 5 is easily identifiable as a new member of the popular and award-winning cooler-series from Scythe. Numerous improvements are easily discovered at a closer look. The reworked shape of the heatsink provides unrivaled memory compatibility thanks to its asymmetrical design. A fan from the new Kaze Flex series, equipped with a Sealed Precision Fluid Dynamic Bearing and rubberized decouplers ensure an increased smoothness during operation and an extended lifespan. The improved H.P.M.S II mounting system has been equipped with spring-loaded screws that counteracts uneven pressure distribution and provides compatibility with all current motherboard sockets. In addition to the polished and high-quality copper base-plate, the heatpipes are now completely nickel-plated, too. The overall result is an excellent tower cooler, which makes no compromises in terms of optics nor performance.
