Default Scythe Mine CPU Cooler

Heat is the enemy of any electronic component and most especially the CPU. If your CPU is overheating you won't get the performance you should and if your cooler is screaming to relieve that heat you'll wish there was a better way. Today we look at a cooler that offers good performance without mind numbing noise, the Scythe MINE.

After reading Greg's review of the Scythe cooler here, discuss it here!

So it seems. Thank you for pointing that out. I will let Rob know of this so it can be fixed ASAP!

When I proofed it I had no idea there was supposed to be a graphic...I just accepted the fact that it was in the ballpark. Oops!

I was thinking the same thing.. When I was skimming through Word, no graphic loaded. When I took a look at it today, it did load, like after 3 seconds.
