Ahh, now we're talking, one for us AMD fellows

Scythes usually perform far better on AM socketted CPUs. The best right now is apparently the Mugen 2.

Nice review Tom. Informative as always

Aww, poor Milind. Doesn't even get credit for his own work

Scythe say the design is to "deflect air in a more efficient manner". I think it's just for looks, and it does look good, but that said it doesn't underperform, especially for its money.

This HS is a bit of a bargin tbh for the temps it delivers. Under 40quid and as good as a megahalem. Sounds perfect to me.

Looks pretty damn nice tbh, just torn between this and a titan fenrir as its a few quid cheaper and seems to give about the same temps,

Would have been nice to see the cooler ON a set up (be in test bench or in a case) just to get a rough idea of size ext.
