Scythe Mugen 5 CPU Cooler Review

We installed the Mugen 5 in our Z97 system, it is made up of the follow components:

Scythe Mugen 5 CPU Cooler

Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K
Motherboard: ASUS Z97-A
Video Card: MSI GTX 770
Memory: 16GB Kingston 10th Anniversary
Power: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W
Storage: 120GB Samsung 840 Evo
Cooling: Scythe Mugen 5
Case: Cooler Master MasterCase 5 with 2 fans

For testing we will first be taking our idle temperatures from the Windows 10 desktop after having the system on in an idle state for one hour.


Next we will be putting 100% load on the CPU using Prime95. We will run it and take a temperature reading at the 1 hour mark.


Taking a look at the results you can see that the Mugen 5 does a great job, it is in the top of our test group.
