5 out of 5 eggs Very good performance 07/20/2009

This review is from: Scythe MUGEN-2 SCMG-2000 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Pros:

Great performance. I used to get 95C load on the stock cooler. I now get 73C. That's a serious temp drop! Those temps are both with my i7 920 clocked at 3.9 GHz on stock volts. I couldn't go any higher on the stock cooler, but with this cooler I can probably hit at least 4.2. Extremely low price, especially considering how other top-tier coolers easily cost twice what this costs.

Cons:

The installation is ridiculous. Dumb, dumb instructions with the washers. Install the screws a quarter of the way into the backplate first, then put the washers on to the screws. Requires motherboard removal, unless you have a backplate cutout in your case. Also, it requires removal of the CPU retention mechanism, which makes you a bit nervous about dropping the screwdriver into the pins...

Other Thoughts:

The cons aren't so bad as they seem, I got the cooler installed in under 20 minutes and the performance was great. All for under two dubs!
