    Scythe Ninja Plus Rev B


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Today we take a look at what is supposed to be one of the best coolers for overclocking, the Scythe Ninja Plus Rev B. There are great coolers, good coolers, and not so good coolers. Itís very hard to distinguish the great coolers from the good coolers from the pictures alone, hence this review. I will test this cooler to help you decide which cooler is right for you before you order one.

    Cooling is a vital part of your computer whether you have a $5,000 system or your basic Dell. Every computer has a CPU, which creates lots of heat. The amount of heat will differ from CPU to CPU, but they all need help keeping cool. With a huge market for coolers, there will be companies that specialize in making them. There are your generic coolers that work for lower end CPUs and then there are high end coolers made for keeping the CPU as cool as possible, while edging every extra MHz out of it. If air isnít enough for you, there are water coolers and phase change coolers. For most people, water and phase are too complicated and over the edge.


    What you get

    The box is very flashy, which draws your attention away from the actual cooler inside. Good thing they have both English and Japanese on this box, as I would have been lost without the English translation. Itís not very often you find Japanese on the box; typically companies create different boxes for different languages. Revision B is plastered all over the box, so what are the differences from the original? It appears the only difference is the rev B version of the cooler has the supporting mounting hardware for AMDís AM2 platform. Oh, and the box is red not blue; this may help when youíre trying to find it on the shelves.

     

    You get all the mounting hardware you need to secure the cooler to any of the supported platforms. For the Intel socket 775, we are to use clamps similar to those found on the stock Intel coolers. I am not a huge fan of them, but we'll see how well it goes during testing.
