Scythe Fuma 2 Review

A Closer Look »


Scythe uses a relatively small black box with an image of cooler in color on the front. Supported sockets and the fact that it uses Kaze Flex 120 mm PWM fans are also mentioned on the front. Turn to the left side and you will find the specifications of the cooler alongside mechanical drawings detailing the cooler's dimensions. The back details the product warranty in various languages.

The right side has a few paragraphs detailing the cooler and its features, such as the HMPS III mounting system, Kaze Flex fans, and the asymmetrical design. Meanwhile, the top has the cooler name and product designation along with a ninja in the background.


After opening the box, I was greeted by cardboard packaging. The cooler itself is supported by a smaller cardboard box that encases it and one of the fans with a piece of foam on top. To the right was the slim 120 mm fans with yet another smaller box to the left for all the mounting hardware.

Everything needed for pretty much every modern socket is included. Even the ancient LGA775 gets support due to the fairly universal design, and the number of parts is kept to a minimum, making things a bit simpler and easier for first-time builders. Scythe also includes an extra set of fan clips for a third 120 x 25 mm fan, allowing for three fans to be installed on this dual-tower cooler.

  • 4x Spacers
