Scythe Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance Edition Featured

Scythe has just announced the release of a special edition of its Mugen 5 CPU Cooler, the Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance Edition CPU Cooler which feautres a Kaze Flex 120mm RGB fan and a fully nickel plated design. The CPU cooler is designed with overclockers and high end system builders in mind and features compatibility with both modern desktop processors such as the AMD Ryzen series, and Intel Core series processors.

Bundled with Kaze Flex 120 RGB Fan
The Kaze Flex 120 RGB fan inherits all the great features and metrics of the series. Thanks to its well-balanced fan speed range from 300 to 1.200 RPM and the PWM support, users are able to adjust the fan speed according to their needs dynamically, using the PWM controller of their motherboard. Kaze Flex 120 RGB is equipped with a high-quality, self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB), which reduces friction and wear to a minimum and offers an average lifespan of 120.000 hours. Yellow rubber pads are integrated into the corners of the fan-frame, in order to prevent any transfer of vibrations.

Easy Installation and Multi Socket Support
Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance supports all major CPU sockets and assures an even easier installation procedure, which has been achieved thanks to the recently developed third revision of Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S. III). It is based on a back-plate mounting system with spring-loaded screws for balanced contact pressure. The third revision comes with updated rubber and plastic spacers, which are holding the backplate secured to the motherboard during the installation process. The compatibility list includes the Intel sockets LGA775, LGA115x, LGA1366, LGA 2011(v3) and LGA 2066 as well as AMD sockets AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1, FM2(+) and AM4.
