Product information: Ninja-CU Full Copper CPU Cooler (Socket 478/754/939/940/AM2/LGA775)To celebrate Scythe's fifth birthday they have decided to bring to the market a limited edition full copper Scythe Ninja. The Ninja was originally released back in 2005 and has proved to be Scythe’s most popular product. The all-copper Ninja-CU first made an appearance as a “concept cooler” back in 2006 at CeBIT. Once the general public saw this new cooler with their own eyes, many enquiries were received asking for a release date. Scythe never intended to release the Ninja-CU because of its extreme weight and higher price! As you may be aware, copper is over 50% more expensive than aluminium and is much heavier. To counteract this extra weight the Ninja-CU does not use pushpins to hold it onto Socket 775 motherboards. You will be happy to know it is secured to the motherboard with the use of screws, so the mounting method is very secure. From a cooling point of view, copper has much better thermal conductivity properties than aluminium; in fact it is almost twice as conductive. This means a copper-based cooler is able to cool a heat source much more quickly and dissipate the heat much more efficiently than an identical cooler manufactured in aluminium. The Ninja-CU is only going to be available for a for the first half of 2008. So get one while you can!
