Mugen 5 Black RGB Edition

Simple elegance is the motto of the Mugen 5 Black RGB Edition. The black anodized top-plate forms a sharp contrast to the aluminum endcaps of the heatpipes and the diamond-cut Scythe logo. The fan frame is also completely black and fits seamlessly into the overall design, while the RGB lighting sets a colorful accent. On the technical side, the Mugen 5 Black RGB scores with the award-winning performance metrics of its predecessors. Five heatpipes and a baseplate made of nickel-plated copper, dissipate the heat into the spacious heat sink. The Kaze Flex 120 mm RGB PWM fan with a speed range from 300 to 1.200 RPM is equipped with a closed liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB). This enables extremely smooth running and an average lifespan of 120.000 hours. The RGB lighting of the fan uses a 4-pin 12V connection and can be controlled by the corresponding header on the mainboard.


Outstanding Design

The stylish, black anodized aluminium top plate is embellished with and eye-catching diamond cut logo. The fan was outfitted with black rubber shock absorbers to keep them in tone with the overall design.

Kaze Flex 120 RGB PWM Fan

Our in-house designed Kaze Flex 120mm RGB PWM fan with a speed range of 300 to 1,200 RPM is used on the Mugen 5 black RGB Edition. This fan is characterized by a closed liquid storage (Sealed Precision FDB) and an average life of 120,000 hours. Thanks to the RGB LED lighting of the translucent fan blades, the fan offers a breathtaking visual accent. This model is also equipped with rubber decouplers. However, they are colored black, to keep the entire frame in tone. The RGB LEDs require a 4-Pin 12V RGB header or controller. 3-Pin 5V ARGB is not supported.

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 ARGB package also includes an extra long screwdriver for easy mounting.
