Scythe Ninja Mini CPU Cooler



Cooling Performance

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.

Let's have a look at the noise readings...


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.

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
