Accessories and Documentation
The major components of the mounting hardware are made of steel and then painted black. The universal Intel backplate uses plastic pads on each end tab to isolate it from the motherboard. To the left are the top mounting brackets that are drilled for Intel on the ends and AMD holes nearer the center. That leaves us with the cross bar at the top that mounts the cooler to the rest of the mounting hardware.
The remainder of mounting hardware is what we have here. Scythe includes a long stubby screwdriver to mount the cooler as well. Below that we found the standoffs, top bracket screws, a wrench and 2011 screws, and the cross bar mounting screws on the right.
Scythe also sends along a tube of thermal paste, enough wire fan clips to hang two fans, an LGA775 preload spacer, and a set of plastic washers to keep the standoffs isolated from the top of the motherboard.
The front of the instruction sheet offers a parts list and then shows how to use the wire fan clips. Not only does it show how to attach them to the fans, but it also points out where the fan should sit in the fins, and how the tab locks into the groove on the side.
The fan sent with the Ninja 4 is this SY1225HB12H-PS Glide Stream PWM fan. The connection is 4-pin, and the wire lead is sleeved to clean things up. The fan offers a black frame around a set of nine thin gray blades.
Where the fan power lead attaches to the frame of the Glide Stream fan, we find the micro-switch. The fan is shipped in low mode, and the sticker to the right of it denotes that we have two other options of settings to use this fan in.
