Scythe Fuma 2 Review 25

Scythe Fuma 2 Review

Packaging & Contents »

Introduction


Scythe has been around for quite some time, getting their start back in 2002. They have since rapidly grown their reach, becoming a well-known and respected manufacturer of CPU coolers and fans. Their diverse portfolio of products along with a firm commitment to quality has resulted in the company earning a dedicated following.


In today's review, I look at Scythe's Fuma 2. Going by the performance on offer from the original, I am excited to see the improvements Scythe has made, which include a revamped design, slim front fan, improved memory clearance, and dual-fan reverse airflow design. With so many improvements on tap compared to the original release, you could say I have high expectations, but that would be an understatement. Considering the original Fuma managed to give the biggest heavyweight air coolers a run for their money it will be interesting to see how the Fuma 2 holds up against the likes of the NH-D15S, among others.
