Scythe Mugen 2 vs Mugen 3 vs Mine 2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want the CPU that offers the most bang per buck. Scythe seems to win in this category by a landslide.

(Last time i asked a similar question, all the H60/H70 fanboys jumped it. Seriously, the H60/H70 cools just as good as a Mugen II and costs twice as much.)

I'm not buying a Noctua. They are the most ugly things i have ever seen. Period. Also, the Mine 2 Outperforms the Noctua D-14 in some reviews.

I am torn between the Scythe Mugen 2, Scythe Mugen 3, and Scythe Mine 2.

Here are some articles:

Scythe Mugen 2 vs Scythe Mine 2 --> Mine 2 wins!

Scythe Mine 3 vs Mugen 2 vs Scythe Mine 2 --> Mine 2 wins!

Scythe Mugen 3 vs Scythe Mine 2 --> Mine 2 wins!

So...why are reviews in English of the Mine 2 so hard to find? Why is the Mine 2 so ignored and un-loved? Would you recommend a better cooler?

interesting.

I think the reason for the lack of reviews would be the fact the its still new. That's good to know that the cooler performs better than the Mugens.

Can't wait when e-retailers stock Mine 2 up.

Here is one review in English:- http://ixbtlabs.com/articles3/cpu/scythe-mine2-p1.html

In addition to the fact that the Mine 2 is newly released (in March?), I think the lack of reviews in English is also due to the fact that Scythe put more focus in the Asian and in European markets and so review sites in North American just do not receive many review samples?
