Scythe is a major player in the air cooling space with a dizzying array of coolers for virtually any application from the Japanese company. In addition to some of the most compact coolers in the business Scythe also offers some of the highest performing - and most quiet - tower coolers available. Two of the largest coolers in the lineup are the new Mugen 5 Rev. B, and the Grand Kama Cross 3 - the latter of which is one of their most outlandish designs.

The Scythe Mugen 5 Rev B (SCMG-5100) heatsink is a lower-noise tower cooler standing 154mm tall and equipped with a single 120mm PWM fan. The Mugen 5 Rev B is constructed around six 6mm diameter nickel plated heatspipes which are swaged onto an array of raw aluminum cooling fins.

The fins are moderately spaced so as to offer less airflow resistance, meaning a relatively low pressure (1.05mmH2O) fan rotating at 1200-600RPM can be relied upon. For those that prefer dead silent computers, Scythe supply an extra set of wire fan brackets so a second fan can be mounted to the rear of the Mugen 5 Rev B and both fans run at minimum RPM for ultra-quiet operation.

Having utilized ARCTIC’s Freezer 7 Pro and Freezer 64 Pro in previous generation builds, we were excited to take a look at their new Freezer 33 eSports Edition, as it has been a while since we took at look at any of their offerings. The Freezer 33 eSports Edition is a tower-style cooler with four heatpipes and a dual-fan configuration to keep air flowing through the heatsink. You may be wondering why this cooler comes with an “eSports” designation, and so were we when we first received the cooler. Well, follow along as we see how this cooler competes against a few opponents."

"Intel recently released it’s eighth processor generation recently. While Coffee Lake requires a new chipset (Z370), the 1151 socket remains unchanged and thus the compatibility of a large number of ARCTIC coolers is ensured. Amongst others the Liquid Freezer, Freezer 33, Freezer 12 and Freezer 13 Series provide reliable cooling solutions for Intel‘s i3, i5 and i7. We offer coolers for different requirements ranging from 85 W to 300 W TDP, an overview of all Coffee Lake compatible coolers is available on Arctic's website:

The Coffee Lake series, especially the K Version, is aimed at gamers and users with high performance requirements, for whom an optimal cooling of their processors is essential. The models of the Freezer 33 series – first of all the powerful Freezer 33 eSports Edition – as well as the Liquid Freezer water coolers are particularly suitable for overclockers. With their powerful cooling performance at minimum noise levels even under full load they create best conditions for overlocking. "
