Following the revamp of the Fuma 2, Scythe has now announced the Mugen 5 Rev C. Like the Fuma 2, the new Mugen 5 also features the new Kaze Flex II 120mm fan, which should bring improved thermals compared to the Rev B.
The Mugen 5 Rev C is much like the Rev B, featuring the same asymmetric heatsink designed to never obstruct the memory slots, allowing builders to use virtually any memory stick. Still, like any revision, there are some changes. The most noticeable is the new Kaze Flex II PWM, a 120mm fan with a 300-1500 RPM range capable of pushing up to 67.62CFM of air with a static pressure of 1.5mmH2O.
The other not-so-noticeable difference is the cooler compatibility. Like most recent coolers, the new Mugen 5 supports most Intel sockets, including the LGA 1700/1200/115X/2066 Square ILM/2011(V3) Square ILM. Moreover, it supports AMD AM4/AM3(+)/AM2(+)/FM2/FM1 sockets.
With a height of 154.5mm, the new Scythe CPU cooler should fit inside most cases, including some SFF chassis like the CoolerMaster NR200. The Mugen 5 Rev C is already available at Amazon US for $56.99, a $7 bump over the Rev B model's current pricing. The European market will receive it later because of a shipping delay, pushing the launch date to April 2022.
