Scythe Fuma 2
While air coolers are not exactly the height of popularity any more, if our reviews have taught us anything, it’s that a solid air-cooler will (nearly always) give an entry to mid-level AIO system more than a run for its money.
In a report via TechPowerUp, however, the manufacturer Scythe has looked to take this to the next level with the release of the Fuma 2. A dual-radiator design that looks more than a little solid!
As part of the announcement, Scythe has provided the following key features for their brand new cooler design update:
- Model number: SCFM-2000

What Do We Think?
While we’re not saying that they have the monopoly on it, the design does look very similar to that used by Noctua. Specifically, their NH-D15 design with that sandwiched fan design. Given how excellent a cooler that is, however, if Scythe can look to replicate some of the performance (at a much lower price) then this might be something of a sleeper hit in the air cooling market.
In addition, in a market that’s getting flooded with RGB, it’s nice to see a nice, basic, but clearly solid design!
Although we can not find this currently available on any retail site, with a reported price of $59.99, it’s certainly something to consider!
