Scythe Co. Ltd is a rather new company in the Computer Enthusiast Cooling Arena.
Established in the 2004, Scythe started dishing out affordable enthusiast grade
heatsinks at a rapid pace, with one generation of innovation after another.
Today, we will be taking a look at one of their latest multi-socket heatsink,
the Scythe Ninja.

The Scythe Ninja is designed for two different mode of operation. Firstly, as an enthusiast level solution when coupled with a 120mm fan. Secondly as a passive heatsink for silent operation. As
you can see in the picture above, the heatsink is designed to dissipate heat
via 6 U shaped copper heatpipes connected to the copper base of the heatsink.
The Ninja is also compatible on both AMD Socket 754/939 as well as Intel Socket
478/775 mainboards. A very impressive looking piece of art IMHO, let’s take
a brief look at it’s specifications.
