Too late for the holiday shopping season - but just in time for the coming year 2009 - is in a few weeks of the Mugen 2 from the large shadow of his predecessor, come forward and face the competition. He enters a difficult inheritance, because the original Infinity which was later renamed Mugen dominated in many areas of the cooler charts and was the measure of all things - admittedly, the weight placed to date also set a new record, want a sneak peek at the performance of the novice, we give today.
If you reduce the popularity of the cooler on the contributions to the radiator in our forum, so only Thermalright IFX-14 and older Thermaltake Sonic Tower similarly high post counts alone, the collector thread to Mugen has more than 2,800 postings.
If it is replaced in the automotive industry is a successful model for a successor, then the changes mostly cosmetic in nature, different from the Japanese Scythe: fundamentally, the Mugen 2, only the tower design, the five dual heat pipes and the typical Extruded heatsink on the cold plate with his predecessor in common.
What has changed is the orientation of the heat pipes, instead of being, as usual, aligned at right angles to the broad side, they are now further apart and parallel to the broad side in addition, the slats between the heat pipes are cut at four locations, through the slots should be improved air circulation. When Mugen 1, the pitch of the blades designed in different positions, so were different fin spacings while the longer plates in the middle section had a large distance from each other, were significantly closer to each other the outer, unlike the Mugen 2, the plates all the same distance, the heat pipe ends were again embellished with caps, as you know it already from the Scythe Kama Angle.
