Scythe Musashi Review

» Discuss this article (19)


I will test the Scythe Musashi by recording the GPU temperatures of the HD4850 at idle and load. They will be provided by the GPU-z 0.30 Utility. I will run ATI Tool Scan for artifacts function to load the GPU. Each temperature is measured thirty minutes after beginning the test, at idle and load. Also, I will use the thermal paste provided with the cooler, since the stock thermal interface is still in place on the stock cooler, which will be the comparison cooler. I will first run that reference design cooler at default speed, which is 35% duty cycle, and finally, for testing purposes, at 100%. However, I'm pretty sure nobody would want to run it at that speed for normal use, because it's so noisy, and as annoying as a crying baby. For the Musashi, I will run the test at the lowest speed the fan controller can provide me, and another time at the highest speed.
