Mine-2-View1 01

Scythe has recently released their new twin-tower, 8 heatpipe cooler, their second revision Mine 2.  It fits universally, and also uses their new bracket mounting methods as opposed as their long-time push pin mounting.  Throw in a renowned 140mm Slipstream fan, and you've got quite a package. 

Introduction

The Mine 2 high-end CPU cooler is equipped with eight heat pipes, which are arranged in a double-tower design. Intake airflows as well as exhale airflows are optimized to provide the maximum performance at overclocking the CPU. New back-plate F.M.S.B.3 is attached for a stable and safe mounting on the motherboard. The Slip Stream 140 PWM & V.R. fan allows the users to choose the PWM function or V.R. (manual fan controller) mode to fulfill from the silent peration to high performance operation. Up to 3 fans can be mounted onto this heatsink

By placing the fan in between the 2 heatsink tower, intake airflows as well as exhale airflows are optimized to provide the maximum performance. Furthermore, the lower part of the installed fan is designed to cool the devices around the CPU socket, such as VRM. By purchasing the separately sold fan clips, up to 3 fans can be mounted onto this heatsink.
