Scythe releases the Ninja 4 CPU cooler

The Japanese CPU cooler maker Scythe has officially launched the Ninja 4 CPU cooler that we reported on two weeks ago. The new cooler comes with a number of significant tech improvements that make it more efficient than its predecessor – the Ninja 3 Rev. B. In addition the new cooler is 180 grams lighter.

The Ninja 4 again offers the same passive and semi-passive cooling capabilities of the tower cooler but includes a new fan with additional features. The fan in question is called GlideStream and is 120 mm wide, featuring an integrated PWM controller. It allows three fan speed ranges – the first one is called Low mode and spins the fan at 300-800 RPM for extremely silent operation and noise levels of 4.0-12.5 dBA. Medium mode offers the best performance-to-noise ratio and spins the fan at 300-1150 RPM. The Performance mode allows users to spin their cooling fan at 300-1500 RPM but the price that you will pay is increased levels of noise.

The heat sink of the Ninja 4 consists of six 6-mm copper heat pipes that are aligned in one layer inside the copper base-plate but both the heat pipes and the base-plate have been nickel-coated. Thanks to various improvements the total weight of the Ninja 4 is 905 grams, which is 175 grams less than the Ninja 3 but the overall performance has been improved. In case you need more cooling performance you can attach another 120 mm fan. In addition the Ninja 4 supports the back-plate based Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S.) for easy installation and firm mounting and features compatibility with all Intel LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA2011 and 2011-v3 processors and all AMD AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+ chips from AMD. The package of the Ninja 4 includes mounting clips, one screwdriver, two sets of fan clips, thermal grease and a manual that will show you how to install the cooler.

The new Scythe Ninja 4 is available now for a price of EUR 37.50.
