Scythe Mugen 5 Black Edition CPU Cooler Announced

The new Scythe CPU cooler is almost here! The new Mugen 5 Black Edition (SCMG-5100BE) is the latest evolution of their popular Mugen 5 Rev.B cooler. Of course, this new edition features an all-black design, including a black heatsink, black Kaze Flex 120 fan, and all-black accessories. For those who want a much darker and stealthier look to their PC, this is just the ticket.

Scythe Mugen 5 Black Edition

The new cooler comes with their latest fan design, the all-black Kaze Flex 120 fan (ramp up to 1500 rpm) that pushes its performance to the next level. However, the cooler can support an optional second fan if you felt you needed it.

Features and Specifications

  • Model Number: SCMG-5100BE
  • Dimensions: W136.0 x D110.5 x H154.5 mm (incl. fan)
  • Weight: 890 g / 31.39 oz (incl. fan)
  • CPU Sockets:
  • Intel: LGA 2066 / 2011 (V3) / 1200 / 115X

  • Fan Dimensions: 120 mm x 120 mm x 27 mm (w/ Anti-Vibration Rubber)

Excellent Compatibility

Thanks to the offset and asymmetrical design, this cooler has great compatibility with memory modules and graphic cards even on LGA 2011 (V3) / LGA 2066 sockets. Standing only 154.5 mm tall, the Mugen 5 Black perfectly fits most tower cases on the market. Of course, just remember to measure up before you order and component!

Aesthetics and Style

The heatsink has a complete black coating and diamond engraved logo, it not only makes the cooler look good in style but also fits the most popular build colour themes.

Price and Availability

The Scythe Mugen 5 Black Edition cooler is available in North America at an MSRP of USD $60. We’ll no doubt have international stock and pricing shortly, so keep an eye out at your local retailer! For more information, visit the official product page here.
