We test and review the Scythe Ninja 3 CPU cooler. The new organization of the aluminum fins allows, in cooperation with the eight U-shaped copper heatpipes marketed as M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow pass-through structure) guarantees high performance. This will get more clear in the photo-shoot though. According to Scythe is that translates into 7 per cent more heat removal compared to a cooler like the previous Ninja. The cooler is equipped with a 120mm-ventilator that can be regulated with the help of an included fan-controller in RPM from 470 to 1900 RPM with noise levels varying from 7 to 37dBA depending on your preference.

We tested two LGA775 mainboards designed in Mini-ITX form-factor: Intel DG45FC and Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi. These boards based on Intel G45 Express and Nvidia GeForce 9300 chipsets can become an excellent base not only for an HTPC system, but also for a compact high-performance platform.
