    If you are confident tightening correctly, the Scythe Fuma is better. Otherwise the Mugen 5 is a better choice.
    The Mugen 5 is normally better though if the Fuma is tightened just right it becomes the best performing HSF on the market. Both of which are great coolers.

  2. Take a look at the Scythe Mugen Max
    It's bigger but better than both of them

    Otherwise they perform pretty similar.
    I'm running a Mugen 4 for my 6700k btw

  6. No it's just called Mugen Max.
    It's a Mugen based line but with differences.

    (The Mugen 4 was the predecessor to the Mugen 5, they coexist with the Max)

    The Fuma performs better than the Max and Mugen 5 if tightened right. http://www.overclockers.com/scythe-fuma-heatsink-review/

    The Mugen 5 actually performs better than the Max too, https://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/pc-hardware/cpu-cooling/cpu-air-coolers/7565-scythe-mugen-5-cpu-cooler-review?showall=&start=5

    You want the mounting screws to be tightened down (equally) enough, but not over-tightened. If you are going the Fuma path, tighten it with a screw driver until you can't tighten any more without putting much force into twisting.

    Well Mugen 5 is cooling a bit better and they are only 0,04 cent in dollars so i think my choice would be mugen 5 but thanks!
