    I need a good CPU cooler for my brother. LGA775 compatible will be cooling a quad core Q66 b3. If anyone has a Scythe Ninja they want to sell off Ill take it if the price is right. Will also need to fit in an Antec 900 case. :) If it has a fan, blue LED is preferred or plain black.

    Looking for $20-30 shipped in the US. Heatware is in sig 100% positive.

    Lemme know what you guys got!

    I second pete's Xig. I about jumped on it when I came across a Coolermaster from Paulieg. I think there might be a second heatsink somewhere in these threads.

    How good is it compared to the Scythe Ninja? (Just want comparisons this is still for my bro)

    Does it need any mounting brackets.

    Xigamtek's one of the best air coolers on the market. You won't be disappointed; I love mine! Plus it's from sneeky; a good guy if there ever was one! Some prefer the bolt through kit but the pushpins have worked fine for me.

    I bought the Ninja from Microcenter 3 days ago and couldn't fit in my mobo, with the fan config to blow outside the case it blocked all 4 mem slots, how the heck will I install the dimms or change if needed?

    And its not that good with the stock fan, u need high cfm fan and ofcourse comes noise with it.

    I would go with the Xigmatek or Arctic Cooling, for that matter get that Sunbeamtech corecontact freezer model.

    Actually get from Peet, that model has 4 heatpipes and might be better cooling.

    How would a Thermalright Ultima 90, Xigmatek, and ThermalRight Ultra 120 TRUE stack up against one another? What one would be best?

    the tru and the xig are really close, and its a 3 pipe 1283 not the 4 pipe 1284 Im selling now.

    I have another Crossbow mounting kit I can thro in for another $5. the pushpins work, but the kit leaves the mobo alot flatter after instal...PM me if you find yourself interested!

    That was my biggest complaint and problem with the Xigmatek why i sold mine, the Push pins are a real pain i perfer screws so it can be properly mounted and tight, i dont know about but personally i'd stay away from the push-pins. Also you can mount two 120mm fans on the TRUE black 120.. double the Blue LED action!

    I might be. Is the mounting kit a required use or a suggestive use?

    In the testing I did, I got 2*C better temps both Idle and Load. The pins work just fine, but due to the pressure of the xigs, it tends to warp the mobo a bit. IMHO I suggest it!
