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.
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.
