Summary: But the Hyper 212+ managed 44 C under the same conditions. Scythe is selling the Kabuto for $60, $10 more than its own Mugen 2 (which we awarded a 9/Kick Ass), and twice the cost of Cooler Master’s Hyper 212+. Poor performance, a terrible mounting bracket, and an exorbitant price spell doom for the Kabuto.
Pros: Better-than-stock performance; PWM fan is nice to see.
Cons: Poor performance; bad mounting bracket; high price. Scythe's own Mugen 2 does it much better.
