Universal CPU Cooler Scythe Mugen 4 Review

Some hardware pieces disappear after a while of emergence but some serve PC needs for years, always appearing in new incarnations. The latter is true about Mugen series of CPU coolers from Scythe. The success of the very first model, Scythe Mugen, gave rise to the appearance of an updated second version, then the third one, and, finally, the fourth one – Scythe Mugen 4.

ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 Motherboard Overview

Recently, the main chipmakers offer three types of system logic for their platforms, which include top-end solutions for production systems designed also for extreme overclocking, average ones for most gaming systems and budget options for office PCs or undemanding users. At AMD, the chipsets X370, B350 and A320 now meet these criteria.


Soldering mid-level hub does not affect the capabilities of the board overclocking. Much greater restrictions are imposed by the schemes of power regulators and the chosen way of their implementation, and only then one may complain about the possibilities available in the UEFI environment. So, let’s get acquainted with the senior board represented by the ASRock company, in the structure of which B350 is included (there are five of them at the time of this review witing). Nominally, it belongs to the gaming series, which means that the user has the right to expect special bonuses.
