With the latest Intel X68 chipset based mainboards just a few months away our LGA1366 CPU Cooler database is slowly coming to an end. Still as promised we will continue to update it with all the latest units in the market by all the major players and so today with us we have yet another large CPU Cooler this time manufactured by one of the well respected by most people companies in the CPU Cooling market Scythe, the Mine 2.
Scythe Co., Ltd., (Registered and incorporated in Tokyo Japan) originally started its business operation in Japan's famous "Akihabara Electric Town" located in the metropolitan Tokyo, where visitors can find a variety of products from the latest computer parts to the world's most advanced high-tech electric devices. Scythe Co., Ltd., began its operation and business since November, 2002 as a distributor and the manufacturer of passive and low-noise PC parts. Since then, the company has established the R&D facility in Taiwan & China for production and quality control, and the USA office (in Los Angeles, California) & European office (in Hamburg, Germany) for customer care and sales support. At Scythe, we believe that the best ideas for product come simply from knowing customers' needs and their expectations. Based on this philosophy, the PC enthusiasts working at Scythe know what to develop because that is exactly what we would like to have for ourselves too! We offer products with 100% quality assurance and total pride, and if the product has the Scythe name on it, you can rest assure that its quality will be up to the "Zero Tolerance" standards!
As the name suggests the Scythe Mine 2 is the successor of the award winning Mine which was introduced to the market in 2007. Of course its descendant is improved in many ways and so it comes with a better fan, larger aluminum surface and comes with a total of 8 heatpipes instead of the 3 its predecessor had. Of course much like the original Mine the Mine 2 only comes with a single fan and so i am not quite certain as to what kind of performance to expect since sandwich type CPU Coolers with a single middle fan are quite good but not as good as the ones with both a forward and a middle one.
