TUF Gaming Alliance Design
The Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance CPU Cooler combines the outstanding cooling performance of the Mugen 5 with the striking design of the Asus TUF Gaming Alliance series. RGB LED illumination, yellow design elements as well as the recurring TUF logo on the striking top plate and the fan, set visual accents that can be found on all TUF Gaming Alliance products. The illumination can be controlled via Asus Aura Sync or a similar control system.


Kaze Flex 120 RGB PWM Fan
The Mugen 5 Gaming Alliance is equipped with a PWM fan from the award-wining Kaze Flex series, operating in a range from 300 to 1.200 RPM. The self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB) reduces friction and wear to a minimum, resulting in an average lifespan of 120.000 hours. Rubber pads mounted in the fan frame have a decoupling effect and prevent the transfer of vibrations. Eight RGB LEDs arranged in a ring around the fan motor generate a consistent and powerful illumination of the translucent fan blades. The LEDs are operated by a standard 4-Pin RGB cable that can be directly controlled by common RGB system of various motherboard manufacturers.


Asymmetrical Design
Thanks to gently sloped heatpipes, the heat sink is not located directly above the bottom plate, but slightly offset to the rear. This asymmetrical design, in combination with a recess on the back of the heatsink, allows for unrestricted use of the memory banks. The high-quality cooper heatpipes and base-plate are completely nickel-plated.


H.P.M.S. II Mounting System
The cooler features the proven and easy-to-use Hyper Precision Mounting System II. A preassembled mounting bar simplifies the installation process, while spring-loaded screws prevent uneven pressure distribution. The mounting system supports all common sockets, including AMD®s AM4 and Intel®s Socket 2066. The Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance package also includes an extra long screwdriver for easy mounting.
