Scythe Mugan4 Review


Up Close:  The Cooler

Measuring 156x130x88mm (H,W,D) the Mugan4 is wide for a cooler of it's height, giving it a more squat look than some of the taller slimmer units we've looked at recently.  Scythe have still been able to cram 50 Aluminium Fins into the fin stack though

As you can see from the images below, the fins themselves are very thin with the 6 heatpipes distributed evenly within the stack.

The Stack itself is split into four sections with occasional bridging fins connecting the towers to aid rigidity.  The heat pipes are terminated in simple aluminium end caps

The Scythe website doesn't confirm what the heatpipes are made of, and although they appear copper coloured the light weight of the unit had us suspicious that they were actually Aluminium.  Our suspicions were confirmed when we took a sharp blade to an inconspicuous area and shaped off a bit of the copper coating to discover the shiny aluminium underneath

True, Scythe make some epic (immensely large) heatsinks.

Oh, btw Tom/Gary; It's actuall called the Mugen, as it says on the box, not a Mugan Quote

Nice review as always, was quite surprised of the temps this cooler managed to keep compared to the other coolers, and it comes at a cheap price too.Quote

I really like their Shuriken, best low profile cpu cooler in my opinion I have one as a spare from when I had to RMA my seidon, it kept my 8320 cool and was much quieter than anything else in my pc's case.Quote

It's called Mugen, not Mugan

Anyway, nice review, after owning the cooler for a month I think this resembles it rather well.Quote
