    Five years ago in Akihabara Electric Town located in Tokyo Japan Scythe began its operation and business as a distributor and manufacturer of PC parts & gaming devices for “DIY PC Experts!”. Year 2008 marks the 5th anniversary of Scythe, and the firm is launching an all copper version to mark the occasion. This copper version comes with luxurious all copper heatsink fins as well as a slower speed fan (800rpm) to fully benefit from the higher performance and heat transfer ratio of the copper while keeping the noise to minimum. The SCNJ-CU1000 cooler weights 1015g (+115g Fan) and for that reason Scythe has decided to change the clip mounting mechanism with new one that features backplate and better contact pressure. This model will come in limited quantity and price around 70.00 (USD) / 59.90 (EURO).

    Dammit they would have to launch this after I got a 9500, only thing that put me off the ninja is the clip mechanism on the normal version.

    Looks like the base is Al. But from my understanding Cu has a higher heat capacity and Al has a quicker heat transfer speed, so this is a sensible combo.

    I may be wrong of course!

    The base is probablly nickel-plated aluminum or copper.

    Its about time they fixed the mounting.
    That is why most people didnt buy the original.

    I doubt it - from the pics it seems that the entire lower heatsink is made from whatever that material is on the base and you wouldn't Ni plate any more than the base if you were Ni plating.

    Actually I am going to try this "myth" of heatpipes again after doing more research. Perhaps I can gain a bit by boing back to the old fallen over boxes. Heatpipes are supposed to be more efficient when the ends are sticking up as opposed to on their side.

    The lower base (part contacting cpu) is copper with nickel plating, the upper base (grey heatsink) is polished aluminum.

    No, you're meant to mount your PC onto it I think. It would make more sense.

    It's heavy, but frankly, with four holes on the Intel platform, using a big base plate, should easily ensure it doesn't crack anything. Hell, the regular version is about the same weight as my Vindicator, which are both rather heavy cooler, and they use just the push-pins (or atleast the Vindicator does), and no such problems so far. It makes it easy as pie to install at least.

    Im sure ya'll have put more than 2 lbs of pressure on your mobo putting in memory or graphics cards or other coolers. The weight isn't that bad, even though its the heaviest on the block. Its a beautiful cooler though. Id get it if it coolers better than my Freezer 64 Pro.

    BUT the freezer pro is $20 lol. Maybe they will do smaller ones of it ?.. The i use now feels to heavy never mind double. It is nice looking cooler think it's becoase the fins are not so close together. Maybe cool for longer to without getting blocked up with dust so soon too.

    Yes, but you're pushing DOWN on the board, on a flat surface when you do that (or at least you should be :wtf:) but this is hanging off your motherboard. Slight difference, and considering the fact the base uses lighter aluminium I'm thinking the centre of gravity will be quite a bit higher than the original Ninja.:twitch:

    The base isn't made of Cu. Boo !
    How can one call it an 'all-copper' cooler?

    Looks extremely mouldy as you could fix fans on either sides because of its symmetric design.

    It is copper. Nickel plated, making it look like aluminum.
