Scythe's mighty Mugen 2 makes its way into our lab and Chad fires up the T.E.C.C. once again to see how it compares.

Specifications, Availability and Pricing

 

 

The Scythe Mugen 2 is a 47 fin tower cooler that surrounds five heatpipes. The body of the fins is broken up into five virtually independent towers that contain both ends of each pipe. Working your way down the 985g (with fan included) Mugen 2 leads you to the base of the heatpipes and they surround another heatsink that aides in removing the immediate heat away from the base by utilizing the flow of the case fans. This smaller heatsink and heatpipes all are attached to a nickel plated copper base.

 

The fan the Scythe has sent with the Mugen 2 has some options as to the mounting on the cooler itself. Scythe has incorporated this 74.25 CFM, very quiet fan, to be able to mount to any side of the cooler that best suits the case environment. If you would like to run dual fans in a push pull configuration, another fan would have to be purchased and make sure they include the wire fan mounting hardware, as the Mugen 2 only comes prepared to install one fan.

 

Availability of the Scythe Mugen 2 SMCG-2000 is high and it can be found at most of the predominant e-tailers. I see no issues with out of stock listings now either, so getting the Mugen 2 to your door should not be a tough thing to accomplish. Even Scythe themselves show a listed price to buy from them, so if all else fails, buy it direct!

 

Newegg does in fact list the Mugen 2 and at a reasonable price. At this point in time I see it listed for 36.99 U.S. Dollars at Newegg with free shipping. Being well below the $50 mark of most coolers, the Mugen 2 is priced in direct competition to say, most of the Xigmatek S-1283 line-up, which are all in the $36 - 39 price range. I always see the Xigmatek as the best bang for the buck CPU cooler; it's getting close to the time where I test the Mugen 2 out and see if I have a new cooler to recommend.
