The Scythe Mugen 2 is a robust cooler that may have clearance issues in smaller cases and has potential for the fan to align over tall RAM heat spreaders. But with this cooler the only one that really matters is the case size allowing it. Scythes innovative design that allows fans to be placed on any of the four sides, two of the sides, or even all four sides if necessary, makes the Mugen 2 less restrictive as to where the fan can be applied out of the way. I personally would have liked to test the performance in a push pull configuration, but I did not have a matching fan or mounting hardware for the second fan.
In the beginning I said this cooler may have the potential to go into my listing of recommended coolers, case willing, for me to advise overclockers to purchase. With an asking price of 36.99 U.S. Dollars at Newegg with free shipping, the price point gets a thumbs up from me. Considering the overall performance, the Mugen 2 is more than capable of handling a relatively high overclock with just one of the supplied fans and at a virtually inaudible sound level while achieving this, getting another thumbs up.
Sitting here now looking at the Mugen 2, trying to pick it apart, I'm finding that I just can't seem to come up with anything to complain about. Just be sure your case is large enough to allow the Mugen 2 some breathing room. With a really great price, and above average performance, I'm gonna go ahead and recommend that you look at the Mugen 2. Most of the coolers I have tested in the past were a whole lot louder to accomplish what the Scythe Mugen 2 was able to do today with very little noise, which is a huge plus.
If you need a good bang for your buck CPU cooler and would like it to be near silent while doing so, go and look at the Scythe Mugen 2, as it has many things other coolers just don't offer, especially at this price point.
