08.03.2018, Oststeinbek (Germany) – 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.
Dual Fan Design with Push/Pull Setup
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.
Improved RAM Compatibility
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.
User-friendly Mounting System
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.
