Scythe Mugen (Infinity) Quiet CPU Cooler SCINF-1000 Ultra

The Scythe Mugen boasts their new Infinity Interleave Fin Structure (IIFS) for higher efficiency, four way mounting. It offers tool free installation and has five heatpipes in a U-shaped configuration. It also fits every desktop CPU socket type.

At 160mm tall the Mugen is enormous! Attached to the five U-shaped heatpipes are 58 aluminium fins. These fins provide the Mugen with a massive surface area which dissipates the heat from the CPU. Every alternate fin is shorter - Scythe call this IIFS (Infinity Interleave Fin Structure) and it is this structure that makes the Mugen a very efficient CPU cooler; so much so that it will cool any CPU currently on the market!

Installation of the Mugen is extremely simple. Just like the Samurai Z and the Mine, the Mugen uses VTMS (Versatile Tool-free Multiplatform System). This is one of the easiest mounting systems we have come across because no tools are required for installation. You do not even need to remove the motherboard from the system if your PC is already built.

The Mugen uses a 3-pin (not a 4-pin PWM) fan so there is no default speed control and this makes it an ideal choice for use with older processors (such as 478, AM2 939). If however you prefer to have some control over the fan speed then we would recommend that you use a Zalman FANMATE 2 or similar fan controller, which will allow you to set your own balance between cooling and noise. Many processors simply won’t need the fan running at full speed in order to keep them cool.

Akasa Newton S7

I purchased an Akasa Newton S7 case for my Intel NUC board. It arrived on time as described. However while this is a great product there are a few things about it I didn't like. The first thing that caught my attention was that the heat sink is painted over. This will have a negative impact on the thermal performance, as paint does not have the conductivity that aluminum does (a copper block would have been even better). As I proceeded with the build I found that the cables for the front PCB were extremely stiff which meant that quite a bit of pressure was applied to my board where they attached. Also the case was not quite tall enough to accommodate the unyielding cables, meaning that I had difficulty installing in the bottom plate. The front LED also stopped working within a few days. And if you ripped your board from a NUC chassis, forget getting the internal wifi antennas to work inside the case. The supplied thermal pads for the CPU are also not a good idea as thermal grease is substantially better. I actually used some noctua NT-H1. However, all things considered I am happy with the product. My computer is now absolutely silent and the idle and load temps are actually better than they were with active cooling. Hopefully Akasa can fix some of my gripes in future iterations of this product.
