This is a silent edition of the the respected Mugen 5 CPU cooler, developed in cooperation with PC Games Hardware magazine. The asymmetric design and cooling fin height worked well for compatibility, while the two Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans (running 300-800 RPM on sealed liquid bearings) are virtually silent (4-14.5 dB). Honestly, the only way I can tell they are running is the slight waft of air I get from the open air case I'm using.
I love this air cooler and highly recommend it.

I happened to notice that this part is officially in the database, so ... the Mugen 5 is a top value mid to upper range CPU cooler. The PCGH edition replaces the single fan with 2 RPM-limited fans (800 RPM). Cooling performance is slightly worse but for a quiet build, this cooler is hard to beat. Even with both fans at max it's completely inaudible inside the case, and just barely audible with my ear right up against it. (At night, in a quiet room, with all case fans off.) If you're after a quiet build, this cooler has to be on your short list.
