Conclusion of the Scythe Ninja 5 Review
In our eyes, the Scythe Ninja 5 is a simple but powerful CPU cooler. Due to the principle of a massive heat sink and two slowly rotating fans in push-pull operation, good cooling can still be achieved at a low volume. In addition, the manufacturer has equipped this CPU cooler with an exemplary assembly system and processed it top.
However, the Ninja 5 also costs € 60.58. This makes it a bit more expensive than the Scythe Mugen 5 and the very popular Thermalright Macho Rev. B. These two coolers also offer good to very good cooling performance and appear a bit less clunky. In addition, both candidates are more likely to be able to handle large RAM heat spreaders due to the asymmetric design. But both CPU coolers have only one fan which has a significantly higher maximum speed.
In the end, Scythe does a lot right with the Ninja 5, but can’t really stand out from the crowd of other good CPU coolers with this product. Nevertheless it is a recommendable CPU cooler.
