The new Scythe FUMA model, the SCFM-1000 is a fair sized cooler, not the biggest we've seen recently but at 137x130x149mm and 920g you won't fit it into a SFF build.   It is compatible with all current sockets from AMD and Intel and [H]ard|OCP states it should work with AM4 clip-on mounts, though you may need a mount if your current AMD cooler is attached through the board.  With a pair of 120mm fans the cooler beats out even AIO watercooler and does so extremely quietly.  With a retail price of $46 this cooler deserved a Gold Award and did indeed earn one in the review.

"Scythe has a history of building CPU air coolers that not only perform well, but are also are a value in terms of your hard earned money. The FUMA cooler is built with the PC hardware enthusiast in mind and sports multiple fan configurations and comes supplied with two fans so you do not have any added cost."

Does look like a good contender, although every second fin stack has like a corrugation or serration? That seems a bit odd of a design, and something for dust & hair to build up on. I'll be sure to try one out some time though.

As long as it's $15-17 more than everybody's favorite under performing cooler, I doubt it's going to be the new favorite.

Amazing performance for a great price and you don't think it will be a new favorite?

Or are you suggesting there's no market for coolers above $30? I don't understand your point.

If it beats the Noctua D14/D15 then maybe. Scythe products have always been underwhelming. Then there is the matter of the superior Noctua fans.
