Scythe Fuma 3 CPU Cooler Review

Last year we took a look at Scythe’s Fuma 2 Rev. B CPU cooler and were really impressed, not only with its performance, but also its price. Well Scythe is back with the Fuma 3! This new cooler features the same dual-tower, dual-fan design with six heatpipes, but they have increased the fin density for better cooling performance. On top of that you are going to get 100% RAM compatibility and some very nice finishes compared to previous models. Is this going to be the new high-end air cooler to get? Read on as we find out!

Special thanks to Scythe for providing us with the Fuma 3 CPU Cooler to review.

Price at time of Review: $49.99 (Amazon)

The Fuma 3 comes in a very nice retail package. On the front there is a picture of the cooler and it lets us know it supports both the LGA 1700 and AMD AM5 sockets. Flipping around to the back we have a list of specifications in a handful of different languages.
