Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B CPU Cooler Review (Page 2)

The front of the packaging is done in matte black, which allows the image of the cooler and the Scythe name and logo to pop. At the bottom, we see the notation to AM4 compatibility, we are shown the new name, and are also looking at an archer on horseback.


The next panel on the box is where Scythe delivers the name of the product along with five, dimensional renderings, of the tower and the fan. At the bottom, some of this information is repeated, but they do go into further detail in the specifications shown in the chart.


The back of the packaging is where we find where to go for support, as well as reading that outside of Japan; this cooler carries a two-year warranty. Along the bottom, we find precautionary notes and safety tips.


The last panel shows off the key features. There is the asymmetrical design which allows for RAM clearance, and also a mention of the use of the Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan. Scythe then brings up the Hyper Precision Mounting System II used with the cooler and makes sure to tell us that this design is capable of using a pair of fans, although only one comes with the Mugen 5 Rev.B.


Inside of the box, there is minimal packaging for the cooler. A thin layer of dense foam wraps the cooler like a taco shell, the fan sits on top of the foam, and the hardware rests on the fan. However simple the packaging may be, with a very long trip to our lab for testing, the Mugen 5 Rev.B came to us in perfect condition.
