    Japanese cooling expert Scythe is hereby announcing a special edition of Ninja 3 CPU Cooler. Silent Version of Ninja 3 CPU Cooler is modified with the aim to create a specially silent operating CPU Cooler. While normal Ninja 3 version comes with a PWM controlled fan operating in a range from 470 to 1.900 rpm, new Ninja 3 Silent Version is equipped with a Slip Stream 120 mm fan (SY1225SL12L) which is spinning constantly at a fan speed of 800 rpm. Hence allows the CPU Cooler to operate at the impressively low noise level of only 10,70 dBA. At the same time the attached Slip Stream 120 mm fan is able to create an airflow of 40,17 CFM, respectively 68 m³/h.

    Thanks to this modification overall weight of Ninja 3 Silent Version could be reduced to 1040 Gramm (37.04 oz.). Main heatsink has not been modified and is furthermore equipped with total of 8 high-quality copper heatpipes which are connected to the nickel-plated copper base-plate. Ninja 3 Silent Version covers all current, and previous CPU Sockets such as Intel socket LGA775, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as AMD socket 754, 939, AM2, AM2+, AM3, 940, including the new socket AM3+ and FM1. Scythe Flip Mount Super Backplate 2 (F.M.S.B.2) assures safe fit by using a backplate and screw mounting system which was introduced with the normal Version.

    Silent Version of Ninja 3 (SCNJ-3000-SV) will be available on the market as of September 2nd 2011 for 37,90 EUR (MSRP, excl. VAT/Tax).

    Heatpipes is the key to efficient air cooling. It allows notebooks to be very thin, and on desktop, dissipates CPU and graphics enormous amount of heat.
    It is also the reason why those all-in-one water cooling system can't compete against these air coolers.
    Here is a thought, heat piped water block with water cooling system! that would give back water cooling the edge. Perhaps it is just too expensive.

    I would assume due to the lower airflow from the fan this version will cool worse than the version with the standard fan which is beat out by many other coolers but do so very quietly.

    It's a shame as i love the look of the ninja's and even had the full copper version for quite a while but due to the heat pipes being stacked they always get beat out by many other models and often by ones with less heat pipes.

    Going by the reviews out there of the model with the standard fan this heatsink really is more about silence than performance but the value is pretty good compared to many of the coolers that beat it.
