HELP: ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro or Scythe Mugen

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well yesterday on my way down town stooped into microcenter and picked up a ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro just in case the Scythe Mugem sis not fir but now that I got everything found the scythe fits with the evga 790i heat sinks so the next thought is what one should I use. Both have decent reviews, the arctic is smaller by far and can be removed easer and such. So any ideas what should I do here.

Test both and see which one has the lower temperature. Use the one with the lower temperature.

The mugen is much larger but looks like a better performer, scythe is great.

I know this isn't on an LGA775 platform but the AC Freezer 64 is the same cooler, just with a different socket mounting system.

Mugen FTW!
