Scythe Mugan4 Review
Up Close: Cooler and Fan Assembly
The supplied 120mm fans speed can be varied between 400 and 1400rpm either by use of a fan controller or via the motherboard with PWM functionality. At full tatt the fan emits 28dB(A) while pushing 79 CFM of air at a static pressure of 1.56mmH20. Not bad figures by any means, especially when you take into account that the whole assembly only costs £40, but we can never help but wonder why Scythe don't supply their coolers bundled with one of their excellent Gentle Typhoon fans.
With the fan attached by means of traditional spring clips the Mugan4 takes on an almost cubic appearance. an 88mm thick stack and a 25mm thick fan means that the front of the fan will be sticking out some 69mm from the centre line of the CPU, and will most likely give RAM encroachment issues with tall RAM heatsinks
