  1. Why dont you go with the Scythe Infinity - it's the newer model. I was thinking about that one. They are available.
  2. I almost did order the Infinity a couple weeks ago but I decided to hold out for the Ninja. The Ninja is a little lighter and smaller, not to mention cheaper.
  3. How does the Ninja compare in the benchiez? Do you have any data I can look at? I'd really like to take a look.

    The INF looks massive. I am really worried about that putting undue strain on the mobo. Can you actually stand the PC upright? May be a dumb question, but it looks like it would fall off!
  4. Dude, what do you think about the Zalman? Do you have any data on that one? Looks smaller and easier to install. The page I saw said the Zalman and Ninja were neck in neck.

    DO NOT buy the Infinity. It's heavy and it broke my retention bracket. The way it hooks onto the motherboard is terrible. All you do is attach two hooks to the side of the heatsink and then attach it to the motherboard. The tabs on the AM2 retention bracket aren't strong enough to hold up the weight of the massive thing. Just a heads up.
  6. Here is a review showing the Ninja is still better than the Infinity.

  7. What about the Ninja and the Zalman?? Any other independent reviews? I found one saying they are the same.
  8. Guys,

    The debate is settled. Look at this link and scroll down:

    The Thermalright Ultra-120 wins hands down (slightly better cooling if not the same as the Ninja, but easier to install and manage).

    Im gonna go with it this weekeend. Thanks for your help! I love THG!
  9. Not so fast my knowledge seeking friend. The Thermalright Ultra-120 is bigger than the Ninja in 2 of 3 dimensions. It cost $20 more than the Ninja. I'm not sure what the Thermalright's weight is but I'd lean to the lighter one of the two. The Ninja is out of stock now because we're waiting on the new version which will have a new mounting system to support AM2. That may correct any previous complaints about a difficult mounting system.

    Also, I think the Ninja's design, with more heatpipes and being on all 4 sides lends itself to better fanless cooling should you desire.

    The choice is yours.
  10. It says the Ultra-120 is about 0.6kg, which includes the fan. How much is the Scythe?

    Is the Scythe really smaller than the Thermalright ??????? The pics I saw online appeared that the Scythe was twice the size! Are you looking at the right heatsink?
  11. The infinity is just totally rediculous. It might work very well, but Ive never seem anything that impractical.
  12. Here is the link for the new Ninja http://scythe-usa.com/product/cpu/026/scnj1100p.html

    It is 640 grams. It's 110 x 110 x 150 mm tall.

    The Thermalright Ultra-120 is 63.5 x 132 x 160.5 mm tall. Although it is narrower, it is taller and wider than the Ninja.

    The Scythe website now says Ninja Rev. B is due for release until Oct 2nd. I plan to wait.
  13. Do you have a Fry's electronics near you?

    I was in the Frys in north Phoenix, AZ a coupla weeks ago and they had them on the shelf. Like $60 or something.
  14. No Fry's in FL.
