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. This cooler is distinguished initially by its universality, supporting all actual CPU sockets (Intel- and AMD-based). For sure, this is not the mere advantage, since it is able to offer much more.



Delivery Kit


Mugen 4 is delivered in a compact-size cardbox, containing a large amount of information about the cooler. The contents will give a buzz to all consumers, due to a list of useful components.

Intel Makes a Surprise Launch of Ivy Bridge Processors

The release of the 4th generation Intel Haswell processors made a real stir last week. This turmoil left the launch of several Intel Ivy Bridge processors practically unnoticed. How strange as it might seem, but Intel keeps on supplying its 3rd generation products to comply with the needs of the vast majority of customers. Hence, a set of new CPUs consists of: five Intel Pentium models (G2140, G2120T, G2030T, G2030), three Intel Core models (i3-3245, i3-3250, i3-3250T), and a single Intel Celeron G470 model.



Each Intel Pentium processor features two cores and 3 MB of cache-memory. The nominal clock frequencies fluctuate within the measures of 2.6-3.3 GHz, depending on the model. All the models within the line are equipped with Intel HD graphics core. Intel Pentium G2030T and G2030 support two-channel DDR3 modules with up to 1333 MHz frequency, while their companions – Intel Pentium G2140 and G2120T – support DDR3-1600 MHz modules.


Each Intel Core processor comes with …

EK Water Blocks has announced a full-cover water block for Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards, called EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix.



The EKWB specialty effectively draws heat from the GPU, memory chips and voltage controller. It is designed according to the scheme with cooling liquid streamflow separation. Due to low hydrodynamic resistance this product is compatible with weak pumps.


The water block base is produced out of copper and nickel-plated, and the lid is made out of acrylic plastic or POM Acetal material (depending on the version). The transparent lid has two openings for 3 mm LEDs. The manufacturer also marks the presence of the décor overlay with a 3D card name, which covers ports for tubes connection. As an option customers can get a plate to be fixed on the back side of the PCB. EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix Backplate – Black (the back one) costs 20 EUR, and EK-FC1080 GTX Ti Strix Backplate – Nickel (nickelized) costs 38 EUR.
