Cons

massive - difficult to get installed if there are a lot of connections to the board surrounding your CPU

1 agrees

backplate installation can be tricky - especially getting the thermal paste to spread evenly by applying the correct amount of pressure and lining up the backplate correctly the first time

The Scythe Mugen 2 rev.B is a low-cost CPU cooler. This CPU cooler is basically an updated version of the award-winning Mugen CPU cooler, and Scythe promotes it as the ideal solution for overclockers and users who want a silent computer operation (as quiet as 26dBA). With LGA 1156 socket compatibility, the Mugen 2 rev.B is made for use with Intel processor model computers (such as the LGA 1366, the Xeon 3500 series, the Core i7 Extreme, and Core i7 9xx). The backplate of this CPU cooler makes for easy mounting. For demanding applications, this CPU cooler has a 200 rpm-1300 rpm fan in it. Besides the fan, the Scythe Mugen 2 rev.B CPU cooler utilizes an aluminum/copper heat pipe design, which transfers thermal energy from one point to another.
