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.

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.
