    Japanese cooling expert Scythe has today announced the revision of the popular CPU Coolers Scythe Mugen 3, Mugen 3 PCGH and Ninja 3. Scythe has upgraded the CPU Coolers to Rev. B. Users can easily differentiate the new version from the old ones by the added suffix "Rev. B" in the names: Mugen 3 Rev.B, Mugen 3 Rev.B PCGH and Ninja 3 Rev.B. New Revision B brings support to the recently announced Socket LGA2011 and therefore compatibility to Sandy Bridge-E CPUs.

    All three Scythe CPU Coolers are utilizing the 4th version of Scythe's Flip Mount Super Back-Plate (F.M.S.B.) allowing firm mounting for current sockets. Mainboards which are using the Socket R (LGA2011) are already equipped with a pre-installed backplate and do not require the Scythe Flip Mount Super Back-Plate. In this case a convenient and easy mounting is accomplished by attaching four screws directly to the socket which are then fixed using a small wrench. Required screws as well as wrench are part of the accessory supplied with Scythe's Rev. B CPU Coolers.

    Even though brand-new sockets are added to the compatibility list, prior sockets are still supported. Scythe is trying to keep the tradition of supporting prior sockets such as socket LGA775 and AM2 even for the new Rev. B CPU Coolers. New Scythe Revision B CPU Coolers will be available and shipped starting next week. Suggested MSRP for the three models as following:
    • Mugen 3 Rev.B (SCMG-3100): 36,00 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX)
    • Mugen 3 Rev.B PCGH (SCMG-3PCGH): 42,00 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX)
    • Ninja 3 Rev.B (SCNJ-3100 ): 36,00 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX)

    For those wondering, that's an Intel demo LGA2011 board that it gave to cooler designers on request. It's a dummy, and has no actual wiring. Things around the socket and expansion slots are just there so cooler designers can work keeping them in mind. LGA2011 CPUs have the same TDP as LGA1366, so thermal load testing is not needed.
    bear jesus, makwy2 and cadaveca say thanks.

    The ugly board layout made me curious, the first thing I thought was "Why didn't they use a fancier mobo to show the product?" :laugh:

    I'm more interested in that board than the coolers. How can one acquire such a thing?

    Wonder if they made the actual cooler any larger to cope with a bigger heat load.

    The specs are still the same as mine

    The first original Rev B :respect:is still kicking ass mainly due to the HAF932,
    but I still don't have a fan directly on the cooler and its kept really cold temps since the s478 3.4EE o/c days and still now with the Q6700@3.2 24/7
    I as well as others here been amazed that it will keep the CPU less than the case ambient temps!! :rockout: :pimp:
    This NINJA 3 has to be at least as good :toast:
