Scythe Announces Ninja 3 Performance CPU Cooler

The Japanese cooling specialist Scythe Co., Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) officially announces the long-awaited successor of the Ninja 2 Rev. B CPU Cooler. New Scythe Ninja 3 CPU cooler, which was already shown at CeBIT 2010 in March 2010, offers the revised design as well as better performance than its predecessor for both active and passive operations.

The optimized structure of the aluminum fins allows, in cooperation with eight U-shaped copper heatpipes, increased heat dissipation of 7% for passive operation compared to the previous model. However for active cooling, the M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow pass-through structure) guarantees the high performance. A fully nickel-plated copper base-plate provides direct absorption of heat from the CPU.

The Ninja 3 comes with the 120 mm "Slip Stream 120 Adjustable PWM" Fan which was also used for the Scythe Yasya CPU Cooler. The rotation speed of this fan can be adjusted between 470 - 1370 rpm and 740 - 1900 rpm. Thus, users can choose between the high performance or the silent operation without sacrificing the PWM fan control feature. Like its predecessor, the fan can be mounted on all four sides of the heatsink.

To ensure efficient and secure mounting, the Ninja 3 will be fixed to the Mainboard using the advanced back-plate system F.M.S.B. 2 (Super Flip Mount Back-Plate 2). The revised design of the back- plate offers increased compatibility. The Ninja 3 can be used on all current AMD and Intel platforms.

The Ninja 3 will be available in stores from mid-July 2010 for a MSRP of 35.90 EUR (excluding VAT) or US$ 49.00 (excluding tax).

The fins are a lot closer together on this one than the other versions. Looks like their going for power rather than low airflow (passive) efficiency. Still looks like it should perform well with with any kind of decent fan strapped to it though!

Hmm.. this plus 2x Scythe GTs should be interesting.

My only concern with all these monster coolers is that they always cover the memory slots when installed on most motherboards

My mugen does but it's not an issue if using ram that doesn't have gigantic heatsinks.

Nice. Will keep it in mind for my next build.

Had a Ninja for my old 3800 X2 build and a Ninja Plus for my previous rig and current rig. Probably could lose 2 or 3 of my 4 case fans and wouldn't have a problem with overheating.

Im loving Scythe, went to the Mugen 2 from Liquid cooling and only went up maybe 18-20 degrees C at most. Quiet, awesome cooling, and even though it does go over the memory slots of my GSkill Tridents, it doesn't really collide with the spreaders. When I eventually build my HTPC I want to use the Scythe LP (Low Profile) cooler.

Yeah it's annoying when you wanna swap out some ram but you have to remove the look to get to them.:rolleyes:

16 heat pipes.

three pull fans and no front fan will give you the lowest temps possible.
(there is no point to a front fan when it can't keep up with 56cfm x 3)
