I honestly quite like this. Seems to be quite a good balance. I wonder what the prices will be when it goes on sale. I just recently got a respire t40 for $15 which is a heck of a deal. This wont go that low though. Excellent review crazy me thinks.
yea great cooler exceptionally quiet it just blends in with the crowd a bit to much
About €47 here. Seems good.
Where do they come up with these names
more like 33-35 euros here (Netherlands)
It's a great cooler, very quiet.
I'd love to see how the Scythe Mugen 4 PC Games Hardware's edition compares to this one.
It would of been nice if they gave some single sided tape for cushion on each side of fan that hits the HS .
In one pic it "looks" like fins are getting bent a little for fan ?
One question on CPU, does that sample really need 1.20v to stabilize it at only 4.2 ?
I would think stock voltage should work or slight bump but then again maybe you increase for more heat output to test HS ?
I still have the scars to prove that installing a Scythe Mugen (1) is a "B". I saw the review title and immediately thought to myself no more Mugens.
Correct static voltages are used to make testing equal across coolers
due to how Haswell operates when testing the FPU at default stock voltages the chip hits higher than 1.2v this creates inconsistent results. As such the voltages are set to a specific setting so as to be as close to default as possible and to be stable The voltages at the overclocked setting are slightly higher than needed to generate some heat and to maintain stability in FPU only workloads
After using liquid cooling for years now I am surprised how little has actually been done on the air cooled side to improve the heatpipe design. No vapor chambers, no gallium filled pipes, and most of the heat pipe designs still seem to perform best in the desktop layout instead of tower, but they still keep making them this way.
Saphire has their vaporX cooler which in fact has vapor chambers as you might of guessed by the name.
For CPU's then?
CM TPC800/812 has vapor chamber but from what I remember vapor chambers don't seem to be big boost in performance .
The old D14 still does well w/o it .
Can this cooler fit into my Fractal Design Define Mini?
My dad has the define mini + mugen 4:
It closes without any problems (with the side-fan-area closed off as well).
Wow.. thanks alot, i will buy it when it's come to my country..
Excusing a test, he does not have many senses very much to replace single Mugen 4 Phanteks PH-TC14PE -s !? (is into which Mugen 4 rights , but is into which Phanteks. and minimal the difference!)
a FAN was tackling industrially I have a copy , but I added it to it single Scythe Glide Stream 12cm 1900rpm PWM FAN-s...
Um, I bet google translate can make better sentences than that? I didn't understand it :/
That must go. I never trust a sleeve for processor duty.
i hope so is worth it to replace Scythe Mugen 4 Phanteks PH-TC14PE onto a refrigerator...
If you add second fan you will get a beast and that beast will go in top class! Better idea is to buy SCYTHE Mugen 4 PCGH Edition. It comes with 2 fans runnin at 800 rpm. It is almost noiseless!
