The 5th generation of the SCYTHE SCNJ-5000 Ninja 5 CPU cooler introduces several interesting new features. The Ninja 5 features two Kaze Flex 120PWM fans. The fans are very quiet, and yet very powerful. These characteristics have been achieved by setting the fan rotation limit to only 800rpm, and also by the fan mounting, which uses the Push/Pull principle. The Kaze Flex fans feature the Sealed Precision Fluid dynamic bearings with a very long service life of up to 120,000hrs (MTTF).
Because of the elaborate, high-compatibility design of the heatsink, the SCYTHE Ninja 5 supports even the LGA 2066 motherboards with eight RAM slots. There are six 6mm copper heat pipes, which are nickel-plated. The heatsink plates are also nickel-plated, and there is a black anodised top plate as well. The third-generation H.P.M.S. (Hyper Precision Mounting System) guarantees simple assembly, and offers compatibility with the Intel and AMD processors.
