Cooler Master Hyper N520 vs. Scythe Mugen 2 vs. Xigmatek Achilles S1284C

HEXUS
15 July 2009
  • Conclusion: We've come full circle, so which cooler should you buy for under £40? For most users, we believe that either Intel's or AMD's reference coolers should be perfectly adequate. Purchased a cooler-less OEM CPU?

FrostyTech
25 April 2009
  • Summary: This tower heatsink stands out because its two 92mm fans are arranged in an offset push-pull formation. There are a couple reasons for offsetting the fans by 20mm that we'll touch on momentarily.

Silent PC
19 March 2009
  • Summary: The Cooler Master Hyper N520 delivers good enough cooling performance, but its noise level is not really ideal for silent computing. There are positive aspects to its design, including the secure, not-too-tedious installation, the ability to point the fan airflow in any direction with either Intel...
  • Pros: Good cooling performance at >9V, Secure mounting system, Nice fit and finish, Fan direction controllable with both Intel and AMD socket boards.
  • Cons: Price, Not much smaller than better 120mm fan heatsinks, Cooling not good enough for price, Fans have bad acoustics

  • Conclusion: Looking at the Hyper N520 I found myself very conflicted. The method of installation could be very difficult. Imagine having to remove the motherboard just to reseat the heatsink, something that should be simple.

  • Conclusion: When it was all said and done and the fat lady had not only sung but left the building we were left with one heck of a good opinion of the Cooler Master N520. Actually, “good opinion” doesn't cover it, we LIKE this thing...we like it a LOT.
  • Pros: - Dual fan design, - Good performance from a 92mm size cooler, - Copper base, - Same installation and parts as the V series of CM coolers, - Top Quality material and construction, - Good size
  • Cons: - only 92mm fans, - not really designed for high end OC’ing, - While smaller than some still won’t fit in all HTPCs

  • Summary: Cooler Master har med deres Hyper N520 definitivt konstruert en god kjøler, men vi vegrer oss litt for å gi den vårt "anbefales"-stempel. Kjøleren viser til gode temperaturtester, monteringen er solid og den støtter mange sokler.
