    Just a quick question:
    Does the Scythe Mini Ninja Heatpipe CPU cooler work with Socket AM3 processors? It only states AM2 in the description but I've heard somewhere it works with socket AM3 processors, it would be going on an AMD phenom II x2 3.2ghz black edition processor. I've got a small case so I need this coolers size, unless you can suggest any other small cpu coolers (preferably under 130mm in height) for AM3 sockets.

    Many thanks, Alex

    i would bet it will fit am3



    Model Name: Ninja Mini CPU Cooler

    Model #: SCMNJ-1000

    Compatibility:
    Intel:
    Socket 478 All Speeds
    Socket T / (LGA)775 All Speeds

    AMD:
    Socket 754 All Speeds
    Socket 939 All Speeds
    Socket 940 All Speeds
    Socket AM2 All Speeds

    Dimension:
    110x110x115mm (Overall)
    80x80x25mm (Fan)

    Fan Speed: 2300rpm (±10%)

    Fan Noise: 24.4dBA

    Air Flow: 32.2CFM

    Weight: 580g

    Installation Manual: Ninja Mini Manual (English/French/German)

    The universal compatibility that the Scythe Ninja Mini affords from socket 478 though to AMD's socket AM2 is a welcome feature; ensuring that those on older sockets can benefit from a quiet and efficient cooling solution. So too is the reduction in weight. It seems that many cooling hardware manufacturers are bordering on the 'crazy' side when it comes to size. If the Scythe Ninja Mini can cool a quad-core processor efficiently whilst weighing in at just under 600 grams then I'm impressed.
