This cooler employs a similar method to the Noctua installation, but with a slight alteration in the male and female connectors on the cooler's mounting system. This modification allows for easy installation and removal of the cooler. However, to ensure optimal cooling performance, it's essential to carefully follow the instructions and achieve proper mounting.

Cooling Performance:

The performance of the Mugen 5 Rev. C is exceptional due to its six heat pipes that efficiently transfer heat away from the CPU and into the large fin array of the heatsink. It is suitable for a wide range of processors, including some high-end models with high TDPs. The cooler can handle moderate levels of overclocking on mid-level CPUs and provides reliable cooling under demanding situations, making it a popular choice among PC enthusiasts.

Noise Performance:

One of the standout features of the Mugen 5 Rev. C is its quiet operation. The included 120mm Kaze Flex fan is designed for optimal airflow and low noise levels. Scythe fans are known for their excellent acoustic performance, and the Mugen 5 Rev. C upholds this reputation. Users can expect quiet cooling even during moderate workloads or gaming sessions.
