Scythe Infinity (Mugen)
Besides the results for our today’s testing participants, we have also included the numbers for the default fan bundled with Scythe Infinity cooler:
First let’s check out the results obtained with only one fan:
I can’t say that the situation changed dramatically when we moved on to Scythe Infinity. Of course, the fans got slightly rearranged within the groups, but overall the ones with high static pressure are still ahead, which is in fact quite logical, because high static pressure is exactly what additional heatsink plated of Scythe Infinity need to be cooled properly.
Now let’s check out the results obtained with a pair of identical fans installed for air intake and exhaust on the broad sides of the cooler heatsink:
These results suggest that the CPU temperature drops by 3-5ºC (rarely by 6ºC) when Scythe Infinity cooler uses two identical fans. A pair of Scythe Ultra Kaze fans performs best of all in the quiet group; Silverstone FM122 is the leader in the medium group, and Scythe Ultra Kaze at ~2920RPM does best in the high-speed group.
