Version 3 of Mugen provides higher compatibility with a new more compactly designed fin and a thoroughly thought out backplate. The overall cooling performance has been increased by refining the M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-through Structure). Mugen 3 comes with the "Slip Stream" PWM Silent fan, which minimizes the noise level at low load while maximizing the cooling performance at heavy load.

  • newegg F.M.S.B.4 (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate 4) The introduction of F.M.B.S.4 (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate 4) allows for higher compatibility with the latest motherboards. This universally compatible Back-Plate is capable of mounting large coolers very rigidly onto your motherboard.
  • newegg Slip Stream PWM for Wide Range Cooling Purposes The fan motor applied is a Slip Stream PWM 120 x 120 x 25mm small axis large fan blade model, which minimizes the noise at low load, as well as maximizing the performance of Mugen 3 at heavy load. The fan runs at the speed of 300 rpm (± 180rpm) ~ 1600 rpm (± 10%), generating an air flow of 14.7 CFM ~ 88.11 CFM at a noise level of 9.6 ~ 32.15 dBA. The overall cooling has been carefully designed to meet a wide range of cooling purposes, from silent cooling to extreme overclocking conditions.
  • newegg M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-Through Structure) By introducing the newly refined M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-through Structure) the total cooling performance has been upgraded by optimizing the pass-through function of the airflow and enhancement of the sturdiness of the heatsink.

Cooling i7 3770K 3.5 (4.5 turbo) just fine

Pros: Silent. Cools down my i7 3770K like a boss.

Cons: Somewhat painful to install for casual PC builders. Fun project for those hardcore masochist PC builders out there.

Other Thoughts: With GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H layout, this cooler won't block memory sticks with large heatsinks.
i7 3770K 3.5 (4.5 turbo) is known for a bit warmer than its competitions, but this cooler does the job so well. My CPU fan speed never goes up!

EGGCELENT!

Comments: This puppy replaced an Enzotech Extreme X and temps went from 55*C to 49*C during Prime 95 torture testing a Phenom II 955 at 4.2 GHz. To be fair, the air flow is more efficient frt to rear than down to the board in an Antec 900 case (InWinn builds a couple of mid towers that support 4 side 120mm units). Apparently my original build wasn't well thought out. Al in all, this is an excellent choice for over clocking or making your 2 core Athalon II shiver.

Not flat as stated below

Pros: Quiet fan, large size, works great if you are lucky enough to get a flat one.

Cons: I bought two of those for a couple setups and one of them returns extremely high temperature on load - 75C. I touched the heatsink and found out it's not warm at all. Reseating the heatsink a couple times didn't fix the problem either. On my second thought, I took a ruler and lined it up to the base, turns out the base is concaved. While I can go out of my way to sandpaper the base till its flat, I believe its QC is not acceptable for enthusiasts standards. Also, the installation is a huge pain.

Comments: Installed on brand new motherboard and Intel i5.
I have air going out of the back and top of the case.

It is good to have someone help you with this.
Also, check your memory, if you are using the kind with fins.

Passive CPU Cooling?

Comments: If you're case does not have a hole cut in the motherboard tray, you will have to remove the motherboard to install.
I would have taken an egg off, but this cooler is sitting on a amd x2 260 (without the fan)! The idle temps are 80-F / 27-C home server on 24-7 even under load never saw temps above 106-F. I have this mounted in vertical air flow orientation (fan would blow up and out case) the width of this unit hangs over the first ram slot (msi 790fx-gd70 mb) the lowest finns are just over .5 inch clearance to the top of the ram (standard size no heat sinks). I was able to install the ram in the first slot with the cooler in place.
