Scythe Ninja 3 CPU cooler review

Check that out, as you can see the cooler has four separate aluminum fin arrays. This is done to create a lot of space and thus make room for airflow to blow away that residual heat.
When we look from the top all the way downwards we spot that cooper base cooling blokck, which has a little heatsink applied as well.
And here we see the top side on full focus. As you can see there are eight 8mm heatpipes configured in a U shape to get good cooling performance, moving the heat away from n the CPU cooling block to the aluminum fin arrays.
Yeah, it's a little hypnotizing alright. The design should create some decent airflow resistance for optimal cooling. The cooler is sized 120 x 120 x 160 mm / 4.72 x 4.72 x 6.30 inch and weighs 1040 Gram.
The CPU block is made out of pure copper but is nickle plated as you can see.
We test and review the Scythe Ninja 3 CPU cooler. The new organization of the aluminum fins allows, in cooperation with the eight U-shaped copper heatpipes marketed as M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow pass-through structure) guarantees high performance. This will get more clear in the photo-shoot though. According to Scythe is that translates into 7 per cent more heat removal compared to a cooler like the previous Ninja. The cooler is equipped with a 120mm-ventilator that can be regulated with the help of an included fan-controller in RPM from 470 to 1900 RPM with noise levels varying from 7 to 37dBA depending on your preference.

An old chinese wisemen once told me that a problem that plagues today's computers is the heat produced by the CPU. A little while ago when enthusiasts were on the lookout for a high performance cooler, they had to compromise, and that compromise was to be found in the noise department. Performance and silence didn't belong in the same sentence. If people wanted performance, they usually needed to buy a cooler that would either create a mini cyclone in their case, and most probably, sound like a jet airplane getting ready to take off.
