MODTHEBOX would like to thank Cathy from Cool Tech PC for sending the Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B Cooler for review.

Introduction:

As Intel and AMD slug it out for CPU supremacy, what lie in their wake is faster and more powerful processors that generate more heat, and a greater need for cooling solutions that strive to achieve an overall level of silence. One company that is battling the performance to noise ratio is Scythe based out of Torrance, CA. Scythe began its operation and business in November 2002 as a distributor and manufacturer of PC parts and gaming devices. The company continues to expand its product line with a current revision on its cooling product line. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the new Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B Cooler.

My initial impression of the Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B was a neutral one. It incorporates all the standard fare such as copper heatpipe technology and aluminum fins that other CPU cooler manufacturers use today. Its overall size and weight may have a "shock and awe" factor for some, but in the past I have seen other overly large CPU coolers, that given their massive size and weight did not perform as well as its size would indicate. One nice feature of this CPU cooler is the utilization of an included 120mm fan.
