Scythe MUGEN 6 Black Edition – The Budget King!

The Scythe MUGEN 6 Black Edition won’t empty your wallet, since it costs $55 only, while at the same time its performance is close to cooling solutions costing two and three times as much, proving that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get/make a good cooler! 

At the start of 2024, Scythe revealed the 6th Mugen generation of its CPU coolers, including the Mugen 6 and the Mugen 6 Black edition. In today’s review, I will evaluate the latter, which at $55 costs 8 dollars more than the Mugen 6. The only differences between the plain and the black editions are the paint job and the second fan, offered in the more expensive model. Given the minimal price difference, I would go for the top model without a second thought.

In a market where a good air cooler costs above 8o dollars, in some cases even above 100 dollars, I am really curious what the $55 Mugen 6 will achieve in terms of performance. We are used to high prices when we ask for top performance, while this affordable product states that it can handle the most power-hungry processors available in today’s market without sweating. If this is true, super-expensive coolers from other brands will have a problem justifying their high prices and convincing consumers to prefer them.

  1. Thanks for the review.
    Beautiful aircooler.
    I think it’s a perfect fit for Cooler Master MasterBox NR200.

    AMD Results
    CPU Temperature
    All Db are at 96.26°c… wrong copy pasta ?

      1. I’m excited to see your reviews. It’s hard to do the comparison between differents websites since you don’t have exactly the same methdology, environment etc.
        Scythe, Noctua, Thermalright, Deepcool aircoolers and some 240/280/360 aio to see the difference on charts.

  2. I’m sorry Aris i would ask, did you remove the Deepcool Cybenetics certification data on the web because 1 month ago i can download the PN1000M datasheet but their data was gone from web now, it’s also same at 80 plus web, it’s the certication data also affected by US Goverment force to action as part of sanction ?
