"Japanese cooling expert Scythe launches the 5th Generation of its legendary Ninja CPU Cooler Series. Scythe bundles the Ninja 5 with two Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans with the goal to offer a significantly more silent solution without compromising the high performance that users expect from the Ninja Series. This goal has been achieved by mounting the two fans using the Push/Push principle and setting the fan rotation limit to only 800 rpm. Outstanding RAM compatibility is assured even when used with LGA 2066 Mainboards with 8 RAM-Slots thanks to a new heatsink optimization. In addition to that, Ninja 5 is equipped with the third generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S.) which further simplifies the installation procedure and supports all the major AMD™ and Intel™ sockets.

The new Ninja 5 is equipped with two fans of the high-quality Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan series, whereas the predecessor had only one fan. Delivering great performance at low noise levels is achieved by mounting the two fans in line, where the first one is pushing the air into the heatsink and the second one pulling it out. Both fans support the PWM function and can be controlled using the motherboard’s fan controller in the speed range from 300 to maximum 800 RPM. Thanks to this low fan speed range, virtually inaudible noise levels from 4 to 14,5 dBA are accomplished.

The Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan series features a long lifespan of 120.000 hours (MTTF) and really quiet running thanks to the high-quality Sealed Precision FDB. Shock absorbers made of rubber are located in the corners of the fans to prevent the transfer of any vibration.

The heatsink design of Ninja 5 has been tweaked in the development process. While the new all-black top fin-layer offers improved aesthetics, the shortened six fin-layers on the bottom of the stack are assuring great compatibility to RAM modules. Thanks to the gaps, which are implemented on two sides of the heatsink, Ninja 5 is able to offer outstanding compatibility to RAM modules with a total height of 55 mm. Fast heat transfer from the nickel-plated copper-base to the aluminum fins is achieved by utilizing total of 6 high quality copper Heatpipes, which are nickel plated as well.

Scythe equipped the Ninja 5 with the third generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S) which combines a solid metal-backplate with a pre-installed mounting bar. The new mounting system omits some of steps, which had to be taken with the previous systems. Special rubber/plastic spacers are used to hold the backplate in place which significantly improves the usability. Further improvement of the installation process has been achieved by pre-installing the mounting bar. Uneven pressure and weight distribution is prevented by the spring-loaded screws, which are located in the mounting bar.

The socket compatibility list features the Intel™ Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA2011, 2011-v3, LGA2066 and AMD™ Sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+ as well as AM4. All mounting clips, one screwdriver, two Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans with clips, thermal grease, the user manual and one PWM-Y adapter are supplied with the Ninja 5 CPU Cooler. Scythe Ninja 5 (Model No. SCNJ-5000) CPU Cooler is available as of today. Suggested retail price is set at 45,00 EUR (excl. Taxes). "
