Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler
You can see from the graph below that the Scythe Ninja Mini provides better temperatures across the board than the Intel reference cooler. Not that this comes as a shock to anyone! I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the Scythe Ninja Mini for use in an HTPC setup, or even in a medium to full-tower for that matter.

The Scythe Ninja Mini is quiet by my standards when using the default 80mm fan and I would have no qualms about recommending this heat sink to those who prefer silence. In fact, I found the pitch and noise from my Palit 8600 GT graphics card was more noticeable than the fan on the Scythe Ninja Mini.
Now that we have thoroughly analysed the Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler let's head over the page to see how it performed as a whole in our performance testing today...
