Scythe Fuma Twin-Tower CPU Cooler Review


Performance has been tested on the Intel Kaby Lake platform which contains i7 7700K processor set to 4.2GHz 1.2V for comparison purposes and ASUS Maximus IX Apex motherboard. Everything was tested on the open rig in a room temperature of about 23°C.

Mixed tests are based on PCMark 8 which is using popular applications to measure performance. Maximum temperature has been tested using AIDA64 stability test.

Scythe Fuma performs really good in our tests. Results are not much worse than these of Scythe Mugen 5 and Ninja 4 which are a bit larger coolers. At the same time Fuma’s fans are spinning a bit faster so under full load can be a bit louder than they higher Scythe models.

In idle state, fans were spinning at about 500-600 RPM, in mixed mode below 1000 RPM while maximum speed was about 1300 RPM. Slip Stream fans are specified to spin up to 1400 RPM so I guess that temperature wasn’t high enough to reach it. As I mentioned some time earlier, anything below 1000 RPM is really quiet while maximum CPU load won’t really happen while playing games.

Above is a graph which is showing how Scythe Fuma looks like comparing to other coolers. Considering its size, results are really good and only models with 140mm fans or AIO are offering better results.
