Scythe Mugen 5 Is a Powerful CPU Cooler Up to 160 mm High

A new sample – Scythe Mugen 5 (SCMG-5000) – has come into line with the famous Scythe Mugen series. Its asymmetric Tower construction enhances compatibility with long RAM modules. The dimensions of the unit are 154.5 х 130 х 110 mm, and the weight equals to 890 g, which widens the range of chassis able to hold it.



Scythe Mugen 5 possesses a nickel-plated copper base frame, six nickel-plated copper heat pipes, an aluminum heatsink and a 120 mm Scythe Kaze Flex 120 PWM axial flow fan. It is constructed with refined hydrodynamic bearings (Sealed Precision FDB) with the specified life span of 120,000 hours. The rotary speed of 300–1,200 rpm is able to create an airflow in the volume of 16.6–51.17 CFM (28.2–86.93 m3/hr). The static pressure is estimated to be 0.076–1.05 mm H2O, and the noise level lies in the range of 4–24.9 dBA. One can optionally install another analogous fan on the other side.

Intel Debuts with the 7th-Generation Core CPUs

Intel announces the next, 7th generation of Intel Core processors, aka Intel Kaby Lake. The Intel U and the Intel Y series models were the first to debut. Each series involves three models, based on 14 nm Intel Skylake microarchitecture. Optimized design promises 12% increase in performance, if compared with the 6th-gen solutions.



New Intel Core CPUs are known to support 10-bit HEVC & VP9 standards which ensure high-quality operation in 4K Ultra HD and 4K Ultra HD 360 environments. All greenhorns come with an integrated Intel Speed Shift technology which secures fast responsiveness on web surfing. Besides, all models are considered to be power efficient; they increase laptop’s/ultrabook’s battery life to 9.5 hours, when watching 4K video content.


Intel Core 7th generation processors support PCI Express 3.0 internal interface as well as NVMe & Thunderbolt 3 interfaces. More details about each CPU are provided below.

Kingston and Adata Come up with M.2 SSDs

Within the framework of Computex 2014 both Kingston and Adata are going to introduce their fresh SSD series of M.2 form-factor. In keeping with the manufacturers’ words, the products – SM2280S2 and SR1020NP — are differentiated by some spectacular performance. At present the companies provide only basic info about the drives, leaving their fans in suspense.



Kingston SM2280S3 is based on Phison PS3108 that supports SATA 6 Gb/sec interface only. It ensures 540 MB/sec and 514 MB/sec speed on sequential Read/Write operations. For sure, it’s not the performance innovative M.2 drives should demonstrate (about 10 Gb/sec), although the model considerably surpasses traditional HDDs in this respect.


This SSD series is represented by three models of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB capacity. All of them employ DDR3 cache-memory with the minimal 256 MB capacity. Besides, the difference in efficiency between other M.2 offers Kingston promises to compensate by a more affordable price.
