Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler



Installation of the Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler was a little fiddly due to the cooling fins of the heat sink protruding out past the push/lock mounting on the base. Even with the assistance of a removable motherboard tray I found it awkward to get to the push/lock pins attached properly on the motherboard back-plane side.

You can see from the above images that the Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler had no compatibility issues with my ASUS P5B Deluxe wi-fi/App motherboard. The heat sink provides more than ample clearance from capacitors and the heat-pipe cooling solution around the motherboards voltage regulation area.

With the fan situated on the left hand side of the heatsink the included 80mm fan comes very close to touching the top of my RAM, but thanks to square shape of the heat sink there are another 3 sides that you can install it on.

Other than the included fan and installation clips residing so close to my RAM, there were no other issues to report. The Scythe Ninja Mini looks quite at home in my case.

Seems to have more than a few references to Scythe Kama Cross rather than Mini Ninja (I guess cut'n'past review format) incl. the award "Today I have decided to award the Scythe Kama Cross CPU cooler Overclock3D's "Recommended' award for its performance in todays review." Quote
