Introduction

Scythe Logo

Scythe has seen a thing or two when it comes to the DIY PC market as they have been around for 19 years and counting. They entered the market in 2002 and have rapidly grown since, becoming a well-known and respected manufacturer of CPU coolers and fans with a dedicated following. Their solid portfolio of products along with a firm commitment to quality has resulted in a company that, while lacking the brand recognition of some of its peers, still readily competes with them all the same.


Today's review looks at the Scythe Mugen 5 Black Edition, which has a clean all-black design, as the name should make very clear. In terms of design, it is your traditional tower cooler, but has the modern features you expect. First and foremost, its asymmetrical design means memory clearance shouldn't be an issue, and with six 6-mm heat pipes, it should perform quite well in theory. So let's take a closer look at what Scythe has to offer!
