Why doesn't scythe make the best cpu air cooler in the world?
I think everybody know which is the best cpu air cooler in the world.
I'm talking about ifx.
I don't understand why Scythe (or an another industry) doesn't make a better cpu air cooler than ifx.
I've seen the godhand and I think it will be one of the best cpu cooler in the world, but It's enormous and (I think)it will be expensive.

And why does scythe use only 6mm heatpipes?
I think that an 8mm heatpipe is better than a 6mm heatpipe.

ps: I don' know english very well....I hope you understand :thumbs:

Hi Italian man!,

Thanks for your message. I would like to give you some straight answers on this matter. First of all, you can check reviews which show that mUgen 2 is maybe 2°C lower or same with IFX, so this is already not correct. The next thing that you can compare is the price, where Mugen 2 is always a lot cheaper than IFX, which means a way better price-value ratio inf act.

You might be aware that we have engineers and test a lot, but don't show many many samples which we do not accept as a Scythe qualified product. As a matter of fact we did show samples on CeBIT 2009 of Mugen CPU Cooler with 8mm heatpipes and those without a baseplate but plainly direct touching heatpipes. This should already answer your question, but I just explain it.

First of all, 8mm heatpipes are not exactly better in any way nor is the direct contact of heatpipesany better, because it is a matter of how you design and use it. In our case, it was not better in the concept, indeed after the tests we made Mugen 2 which was the outcome of the tests.

The bottom line is that we test a lot and if the design is not benefiting and just is mor expensive, then there is no sense in making it. Other brands can make expensive and non-efficient coolers, we try to give endusers the best thing they can buy for lowest prices. I think this helps everyone =D

In effect, 1 week ago i wanted to buy an IFX, but the price, the compatibility with 1366 socket and the fan not included convinced me to buy a Mugen 2 or a Orochi.
I know some test say that Mugen 2 is better than IFX, but not in fanless I remember. I must say that some IFX have a defect in the base, it is possible that the performance of ifx are bad for that cause.

Ehm.....Do you know if Godhand is better than IFX?

sorry, but we can say nothing about the performance of the godhand cooler, yet.

Because you don't know if Godhand is better?
Or because it is a "commercial secret"? XD

because there are no measurements yet and there exist only one handmade model

Because you don't know yet that is it better or not... :D
