Scythe Ninja 5 CPU Cooler Review 02 |

The Scythe Ninja 5 comes in a large black box, whit the front panel using red and white to highlight things around the image of the cooler. At the bottom of the panel, we can see the compatibility as well as a pair of badges showing that the Ninja 5 is AM4 and LGA2066 ready.

On the right side of the box, features are listed. The list starts with the Hyper Precision Mounting System III, the latest mounting system from Scythe. There is high memory clearance designed into the fin stack, and as mentioned this is a dual fan design. The last bit shown is its quiet operation, which is a massive seller of coolers in today's market.

The back of the box has the company name, site addresses, and even a few links for support as well. The large red section covers the two-year warranty and what that entails. At the bottom and bottom-right of the panel, we see things listed as warnings or cautionary statements to ensure the cooler is used correctly.

The last remaining panel of the packaging gives us four, dimensional renderings, of the cooler near the top. Below the renderings is a chart which covers things like dimensions, weight, compatibility, and fan information.

Inside of the box, we find that the tower is laid on its side, and is surrounded by an inch thick layer of dense foam to keep any damage away from it. On either side of the tower, is a thin cardboard insert, which has the fans in them. On top of the cooler is a box containing all of the hardware needed to get the Ninja 5 mounted to any compatible motherboard. All of the attention paid to the internal packaging paid off, as our Ninja 5 showed up in near perfect condition.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
