Scythe Fuma 2 – A Reverse Jet Flow CPU Cooler
Scythe's Fuma 2 is a departure from the previous Fuma CPU cooler, having a dual-tower system with six Heatpipe, which moves heat away from CPU and to the dual towers with many fins to help dissipate the heat, along with the Reverse Jet Flow system to dissipate the heat into the surrounding area.
The Scythe Fuma 2's amazing 'Reverse Jet Flow' system, makes each fan rotate in opposite directions creates a more stable airflow
The 'Reverse Jet Flow' system makes each fan reversely spin allowing for higher static pressure and a more stable airflow allowing the CPU to be cooled more effectively.
The asymmetrical heatsink allows for better compatibility with taller RAM sticks, especially where there are two RAM slots on either side of the CPU or a quad-channel memory configuration. The Fuma 2 measures 137mm wide, 154.5mm in height and 131mm deep, this makes this CPU cooler very big by normal CPU cooler standpoints.
Along with the asymmetrical heatsink, the included fans are two different models, having two separate thicknesses one fan being 17mm including the anti-vibration rubber pads the second one being 27mm with the anti-vibration rubber pads. The slimmer fan allows for the compatibility with qual-channel memory, although if you are willing to give up quad-channel memory you could attach a third fan, but don't expect any real cooling performance boost when using a third fan. These fans spin at a variable rate, depending on the heat/load currently being generated by the CPU itself, but can spin anywhere from 200 - 1200RPM each.
The sockets in which this CPU cooler will mount to are the LGA 775/ 115x/ 1366/ 2011(V3)/ 2066 which does include Intel's latest sockets which allow even an i9-9900k to be cooled by this device, on the AMD side, this supports from FM1 socket all the way to AMD's current socket the AM4.
With this CPU cooler costing just $59.99 on Amazon.com and having very wide compatibility, this would be a perfect CPU cooler for any PC builder as they are commonly changing either CPUs from AMD to Intel, along with Black Friday right around the corner, I'll be keeping my eye out for this cooler.
