According to this the Thermalright MUX-120 is a grate choise and on second place the scythe mugen. If I understand it right the scythe mugen have a better fan controler system then the MUX-120?
Here in sweden the MUX-120 cost about $20 more then the scythe mugen. Is it worth to go with the MUX-120?
Will both of these coolers fit in to my Antec sonata 2 case?
The Scythe Mugen I think would be the better one for the fact that the pipes on the bottom are copper instead of aluminum. The copper being always the better choice for heat transfer. I mean its up to you, but i just like copper.
My Q6600 @ 3.0Ghz stock cooler runs with 52 degree on full load. I will probably not oc alot more so I have decided to go with the alot cheaper cooler Arctic Cooling Freezer 7Pro rev.2.
Its not as good as the more expensive but your should not buy the best cooler if you are not into oc alot. I hope that the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7Pro rev.2 will make my computer more quiet then the stock. What do you think?
this is the one I got a while ago it is VERY quiet, my temps never get above 90 F. kinda cool because it lights up white. also it comes with a backplate which is nice so it gets some more support, no one wants their HS to fall.
I'm going to consider this solved on my part unless you have a question for me, but I already put what you should try and many others on Tomshardware are in here helping I hope you find what your looking for and this thread can be solved. Thanks though for your questions SnowJim.
Quick Question. I have a Antec 900 case. If I wanted to get a Mugen 2 Rev. B could i actually point the cpu fan towards the top of the case (where the 200MM fan is) Would this be a problem?
which way does the fan spin on the Mugen... is it pulling the heat from the heatsink or pushing cooler air over the heat sinks
Generally all the cpu fans push air over the fins to keep them cool! As if it were a radiator just about the same concept, for the fact the fans blow on the radiator cooling the fins and the coolent inside.
The Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B CPU Cooler can be pointed towards the back of the case there in-tell pushing the hotair off the heatsink towards the exhaust fan on the back of the computer case.
