Scythe Mugen 5 PCGH Dual Fan High Performance Quiet CPU Cooler

This version of the Mugen 5 has been developed in cooperation with PC Games Hardware. it features two extremely quiet Kaze Flex PWM fans which deliver excellent performance utilising a push/pull configuration.

Features

  1. developed in cooperation with the PC Games Hardware magazine
  2. Supplied with two Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans
  3. Total of six U-shaped heatpipes
  4. Asymmetric design
  5. Extremely quiet, from only 4.0 dBA
  6. Compatible with Intel and AMD motherboards

This special silent edition of the award-winning Mugen 5 CPU cooler has been developed in cooperation with the PC Games Hardware magazine. Two 120 mm Kaze Flex PWM fans with a maximum speed of 800 rpm produce an impressive cooling performance by using the push / pull principle without sacrificing the silent characteristics. The high-quality heat sink features 38 aluminium fins, six nickel-plated copper heatpipes and a nickel-plated and polished copper base plate. The updated H.P.M.S. II mounting system allows for quick and easy installation and offers full compatibility with AMD’s new AM4 socket.

Asymmetric design for maximum compatibility

RAM modules with large passive heatsinks are no problem for the Mugen 5 PCGH Edition. Its heatpipes are slightly sloped backwards so that the radiator is not centered above the baseplate, but slightly offset. This asymmetrical design allows unrestricted access to the memory slots. The low height of only 154,5 mm offers maximum compatibility with standard PC-Cases.


Kaze Flex 120 PWM Fans

The Mugen 5 PCGH Edition is equipped with two 120 mm PWM fans from the newly developed Kaze Flex series operating in a range from 300 to 800rpm. The self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB) reduces friction and wear to a minimum, which results in an average lifespan of 120.000 hours. Rubberised pads have a decoupling effect and prevent the transfer of vibrations. The dual fans generate an increased airflow by using the push / pull principle but keep the noise levels down due to relative low rpm.


H.P.M.S. II (Hyper Precision Mounting System II)

The updated second generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System was designed with several small improvements benefiting the user friendliness. The already pre-assembled mounting bar makes installation much simpler, while spring-loaded screws prevent uneven pressure distribution. This version of H.P.M.S. also offers full support for AMD’s new AM4 socket. The Mugen 5 PCGH package includes an extra-long screwdriver for easy mounting.

Does what it says on the box :)

,

I bought this to replace the standard AMD cooler on my new Ryzen, which although not terrible for a stock cooler, was too loud and ran a little too hot a little too quickly for my liking.

The Scythe installed very easily (it’s a little shorter than some, so no worries about fitting it in my tower) and even on 100% fan speed it is still quieter than my Noctua case fans from outside the case.

It’s also keeping my CPU about 15C cooler than the OE Wraith did, so a great performance all round - I’d certainly recommend this cooler.

“Excellent product and service”

“I purchased this Thermolab Trinity cpu cooler to replace the Intel cpu cooler supplied with an Intel Pentium D processor 830 3 GHz LGA775.

The problem with the Intel cooler was that it was just so noisy - it was a real pain having to listen to it all day.

Installing the Trinity was a fairly major undertakiing, because you have to take out the motherboard. That is because the Trinity has a backplate which is mounted on the underside of the motherboard and which bolts through to secure the main cooler on the cpu side of the board.

I think it would be extremely unlikely that you could install this without removing the motherboard and, in my system, an Intel D945GNT system board mounted in an Acousticase AC 6607 case, this also involved taking out the hard drives and the psu.

In all it took me over three hours to install this cooler - although how long it takes will depend a lot on your particular system and how used you are to taking it all apart.

Howeever, having made the effort, it was definitely worthwhile.

The new cooler is virtually silent and it is wonderful not to have to spend all day listening to the Intel cooler fan whining away.

Monitoring showed that the Intel cooler fan was doing about 4800 rpm against the Trinity at typically 600 rpm or so - which accounts for why it is quieter; the bigger fan rotates more slowly to move the same volume of air. And, of course, it has a much bigger radiator, which I am sure helps.

The comfort levels around the machine have now inproved dramatically.

Also, the temperature levels seem good - I wasn’t monitoring them closely before I changed coolers, but the monitororing I’m doing now suggests that they are down on what they were before.

Also, excellent technical support and service from Quiet PC.

All in all, an excellent product and well worth the effort of installing it.”
