Japanese cooling expert Scythe has today announced new versions of its popular Scythe Mugen 3, Mugen 3 PCGH and Ninja 3 CPU coolers.
The upgraded "Rev. B." coolers support the Intel's socket LGA2011 processors including Sandy Bridge-E.
All three Scythe CPU Coolers are utilizing the 4th version of Scythe's Flip Mount Super Back-Plate (F.M.S.B.) allowing firm mounting in current sockets. Mainboards which are using the Socket R (LGA2011) are already equipped with a pre-installed backplate and do not require the Scythe Flip Mount Super Back-Plate. In this case, convenient mounting is accomplished by attaching four screws directly to the socket which are then fixed using a small wrench. Required screws as well as wrench are part of the accessory supplied with Scythe's Rev. B CPU Coolers.
Even though new sockets are added to the compatibility list, prior sockets are still supported. Scythe is trying to keep the tradition of supporting prior sockets such as socket LGA775 and AM2 even for the new Rev. B CPU Coolers.
The Scythe Revision B CPU Coolers will be available and shipped starting next week:
Mugen 3 Rev.B (SCMG-3100): 36,00 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX)
Mugen 3 Rev.B PCGH (SCMG-3PCGH): 42,00 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX)
Ninja 3 Rev.B (SCNJ-3100 ): 36,00 EUR (excl. VAT/TAX)
