Indeed, but I really like the looks! I don't know if the weight is that bad. My 650g Rev. B Ninja has no problem beeing carried around, while I didn't even bother to use a bolt-through. Obviously that's a good Idea for this one.. But serious won't you be stupid if you used the Cu-version with a fan?...

Hi,

i've got an X2-4400+ 939 65W. My system, 2 GB, 1 SATA-drive, 2 fans runs on a calculated 65 idle and 140 load.

These number are max.

My PSU is a Seasonic S12-430 (very good sample!) which is obviously overkill.

It's best to have the Scythe's FDB-bearing horizontally. They float in any direction over the fan's frame. No mechanical wear measureable. Sleeve-bearings are not built in ANY way for horizontal mounting. They will abrade over the entire area (the hubs made of) which causes them to make grinding and...

10 min. heating by a (almost only) convection-cooled CPU seems a bit (read: FAR TOO) short.
A minumum of 1 hour to stabilize is neccesary, if it was only to settle a stable
temperature for all components of your system.

I bet it's going higher than 70... :oops:

If you install a backplate - the mass doesn't really matter that much.

I guess you'll want the Scythe Ninja Mini to be a tad shorter that 100 mm?
