AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Baseline test

Time for the essence of this review. The Scythe NINJA 5 should be enough for the range of CPUs from the Pentium to the Core i7 Hexa-core, or even the Core i9 octa-core and also the AMD Ryzen family. Unlike in most previous reviews, this time we’ll check the cooler on a Ryzen 7 3700X system as well. We ran the test at the default frequencies. First up is the IDLE temperature, measured when the CPU does next to nothing, just waiting for any action by the user.


There are no major differences in this case.




Here, it’s becoming more interesting, and you can see some differences. The ambient temperature was about 22°C, which does affect cooling performance for sure, but we tested all the previous coolers in similar conditions. You don’t want to have the CPU above 75-80 degrees at default frequencies, otherwise, you can assume that the cooler is surely doing a very poor job. This air cooler offers a solid performance. On the next page, we’ll show you how does it look like on the Intel platform.
