About Scythe

Scythe Co., Ltd. (Registered & incorporated in Tokyo Japan) originally started in Akihabara Electric Town located in Tokyo Japan, where visitors can find the latest electric products from computer parts and accessories to the world’s most advanced cellular phones with video camera capabilities, small displays and the ability to play movies! Scythe Co., Ltd., began its operation and business in November, 2002 as a distributor and manufacture of PC parts & gaming devices for “DIY PC Experts!”. For more information about Scythe Japan HQ, please visit the website at: (If you read Japanese!). Scythe’s first venture was to manufacture a super powerful YET super quiet CPU cooler (Scythe Kamakaze CPU cooler), and with the great success of this Kamakaze CPU cooler, Scythe became recognized as the leading CPU cooler supplier in Japan’s Akihabara Electric Town. Shortly there after, due to popular demand, Scythe began exporting products all over the world.

The Scythe Mugen series which includes Mugen;Mugen 2 ; Mugen 2 Rev.B is well know, Mugen 2 (Rev.B) is probably the most know when it comes to cooling enthusiasts.The Cooler I’m going to test is the new sucessor presented at CeBIT 2011, the Scythe Mugen 3,let’s hope it leaves up to his reputation and gives a excellent performance for the Price.
