Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B CPU cooler is the consistent further development of the award-winning Mugen CPU cooler. Several features make this cooler the perfect solution for silent users and overclockers! New Rev. B is equipped with advanced back-plate to simplify mounting as well as providing socket LGA 1556 compatibility. Mugen 2 is on the latest state of technology and was produced using highest Japanese quality standards.
F.M.S.B. (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate)
The newly developed F.M.S.B. (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate) both improves the compatibility and mounting of the cooler with the motherboard. With this system, a solution was developed which is not using push pins but is instead based on a Back Plate/screws mounting set. Of course, Mugen 2 Rev. B is compatible with all the current sockets, including the new Intel Socket LGA 1156 and LGA 1366.
Multi Fan Mount Structure
As with the former Mugen it is possible to mount the supplied fan in four different directions. By this, the user can arrange the air flow to the circumstances of his deployment area. Furthermore, a maximum of 4 fans be installed, the needed fan clips have to be bought separately.

It's good. massive cooler paired with a single fan (i added a second) is more than able to cool my core i5 2500k o 4.4GHz. With the fan speed set at 47% (700rpm) the temp goes bewteen 40 to 65 on prime95. Not the greatest temps, but i am keeping the fan speed low! and this is in a low flow case. those are acceptable temps i think.
I keep the stock fan spinning at 500-600 rpm (dead quiet) and it keeps my overclocked Phenom X4 9950 (running at 3.0 GHz) at 36/46 (idle/load). Increasing the fan speed to max is still reasonably quiet and drops the temperatures to 29/37. I've read that using a push/pull fan configuration gives stellar results...may try that later.
I bought this heatsink 3 days ago to replace a dinky stock Intel cooler, and it's exceeded my expectations. So much so I decided to get off my lazy arse and actually write a review. Although this heatsink isn't the most expensive it feels well made for the cost. The only flimsy parts are the fan clips, so just take care not to bend them. But once their attached they feel pretty solid. Other than that I have no complaints, just make ABSOLUTELY sure this heatsink will fit in your case, it's MASSIVE, things 850g of badassery afterall. It fits perfectly in my Antec 300 Mid tower with a P55A-UD3 mobo, just enough space on all sides. I have the fan orientated facing backwards (That's the only way the fan fits as to not obstruct the RAM or graphics card) but it ended up working perfectly so the heatsink fan is assisted by the back fan; so it draws even more air through the fins now. Now for the good part. Before my i3 540 would run 40c 100% loaded at 3.2 Ghz overclocked. It's now at 18-20c 100% loaded at the same speed (prime 95)! And it gets better, at 3.45Ghz with the stock cooler it used to run 74-78c per core under load, it's now down to no more than 45c! That's a drop of at least 30c or more. I was blown away. Before I felt uncomfortable leaving it at 3.45 because of the temps, now i have it at 3.45 normally and OC to 3.8 if I wish with room to spare. The only other complain I have is this cooler isn't 100% copper. But hey it's 45 bucks. 5 stars from me. Just be damn sure it'll fit in your case.
Bought this with a PC I had NCIX assemble for me. It appears that the heatsink bent during shipping ( understandable)... Not compatible with MSI P55a-G55 as it interferes with the DIMM slots ( heat spreaders on Ram are too tall), you cannot fit a push fan on the ram without hitting the Ram when configured so that the widest portion is North South. North South configuration interferes with PCI-E 1 slot ( may just fit the card if the Heat Sink is installed level but I doubt it). I know this is an excellent heat sink as per all the great reviews and I've used the PWM fan before with great success. Just make sure you don't have it installed before shipping a system and be sure to have a motherboard around to measure to make sure it will fit! I won't knock it for my lack of foresight. Would totally use this if I had a compatible MOBO.
This heatsink is huge, be wary when purchasing and make sure it'll fit inside your case. It works great though, it's very quiet and gets the job done. The instructions kind of suck but it's not too hard to figure out how to mount it.
This cooler is beastly. Both in size and performance. Price match this and you will have a excellent aftermarket cooler to replace those crappy Intel stocks. I wish the block was copper, though--and some ridges would do good too. MX-3 did not spread itself well, perhaps the tim it came with is better? Otherwise this cooler is great. Way better than H12 after a price match.
