    Japanese cooling specialist Scythe hereby officially announces the launch the new high-end CPU Cooler Mine 2. The Mine 2 CPU Cooler is based on a twin cooler Layout. Eight copper heatpipes transport heat to two generously dimensioned cooling blocks. By placing the fan in between the 2 heatsink towers, intake as well as exhale airflows are optimized to provide high performance. Furthermore, the lower part of the installed fan is designed to cool the devices around the CPU socket, such as voltage regulators and RAM. The structure of the heat sink makes it possible to use a total of up to three fans by purchasing separately sold fan clips. In this manner, the air flow and thus the cooling capacity of the Mine 2 will be significantly increased by using the push / pull principle.

    By default, the Mine 2 will be delivered with a centrally placed, adjustable 140 mm Slip Stream PWM & VR fan. Although the fan supports the PWM feature, the user can manually adjust the PWM bandwidth between 470 to 1,370 rpm and 740 to 1,900 rpm. Despite the changed bandwidth, the fan is still controlled by the PWM signal from the motherboard, allowing an individual but also dynamic fan control. Alternatively it is possible to disable the PWM function. Instead the fan can be controlled manually in a range of 500 to 1,700 rpm. This gives every user the option to optimize the Mine 2 CPU cooler for performance or low noise according to own preferences.

    For safe and stable attachment to the motherboard, the new F.M.S.B.3 (Super Flip Mount Backplate 3) mounting system is used. Due to the improved design of the backplate, Mine 2 CPU is compatible with all current sockets, including the new LGA1155.

    Scythe Mine 2 will be available worldwide from early February 2011 for 50.50 Euro (Excl. VAT).

    Looks like I have just found the replacement for my beloved Scythe Mugen II. This truly looks like a winner, as long as they have simplified the mounting system. :toast:

    Lets hope it delivers. It looks awesome.

    The fan is great also but two of them would've been better. :)

    Lets see how this stacks against the Silver Arrow and the D14.
    I was just considering one of these twin tower heat sinks, I guess I should wait and see.

    I look forward to the reviews although my hopes are not too high due to the stacking of the heat pipes.

    Thankfully, the base is made of copper (nickle plated), so there's a good chance it'll make a difference.

    If you go to the product page link, there are a few review links. I can't get to any of them from work at the moment :(

    The review links work for me although are Greek and German so time to use google translate :D

    *edit*
    According to those two reviews the prolimatech megahalems and noctua NH-D14 both beat the mine 2.

    Yeah at a much higher price. I think Mine 2 has the same purpose as Mine 1, offering similar performance to high-end coolers for quite a lower price (almost half of the Noctua...).

    Very true, i never thought to look at the price as the D14 is around £60 here and the article says the mine 2 will be 50 euros excluding vat (20% here) so it should be cheaper.

    Although i wonder how the mine 2 does against the be quiet dark rock pro (about £50).

    What I don't find on many heat sink reviews is the comparison on price/performance... or how much a degree Celsius costs.

    for example: measure the difference in Celsius between low & idle and divide that with the price... :D
