  1. That you get low temps, thats whats so amazing.
    There are better coolers for the price tough.
  2. Well I not only meant low temperatures.

    And yes $45-50 is a lot for it. Where can I still get them? I heard that there is a new Scythe Ninja called "Rev. B" is that a good one? or better one? what do you guys htink about it?

    Tuniq Tower 120, Scythe Infinity, TT BT, and Thermalright Ultra-120, the latter one is a bit more expensive, but its the best passive one.
  5. Froogle.
    The revision B is just an added AM2 bracket, nothing has ever changed from the original design.
  6. Scyte Infinity was the one that took my eyes when I was trying to look for the Ninja. However this Infinity is more expensive (like $10 more) but because this is the most expensive one I would say is the best one right? Even better than the Ninja and Ninja Rev B?
  7. I believe it has five heatpipes while the ninja has six. It is larger too. You need to look at heat benchies to see the difference (I don't know it).
  8. I just ordered the Scythe Infinity today from newegg for $58. But then I was reading around and a lot of ppl say that the stock 120 mm Scythe fan sucks, it only does speed: 1,200rpm (±10%) and air Flow: 46.5CFM. So I ordered the SILVERSTONE FM122-B 120mm fan speed 800 ~ 2400rpm and air flow: 107.13 CFM for another $17 to replace the stock Scythe fan bringing up the total to $75. I would guess that this would be a great combo for air cooling, but I won't know for sure until I get it. I just don't want to mess with liquid cooling so I would rather pay premium prices for great air cooling :)

    Hehehe thats false too oftenly in the hardware market.
    Both of them will perform on par with their stock fans, but the fin density on the Infinity is alot tighter, therefore itll outperform the Ninja with high RPM fans.
    The number of heatpipes dont really make a difference, take a look at the Tuniq Tower 120 for example.
  10. Im not the guy who loves to spend money on heatsinks cuz I dont overclock. I just wanted to know the special thing about this heatsink. Thanks
