Seems to have more than a few references to Scythe Kama Cross rather than Mini Ninja (I guess cut'n'past review format) incl. the award "Today I have decided to award the Scythe Kama Cross CPU cooler Overclock3D's "Recommended' award for its performance in todays review."

i have one of those too!

lovly piece of kit, and i've fitted it in a HTPC too

and for anyone wanting to get one but think you might cut your fingers into million pieces.

you simply dont place your fingers where the push pins are, get a flat head screw driver, go from the top of the cooler, on all 4 corners there is a slot on those fins where you can see the push pin from the top.

on those push pins, theres a groove on top, simply use flat head screw driver, push it down till 'click', job done.

same as for unlocking the pin to remove, use flat head screw driver, twist it, and pull off.

pic of it fitted inside a HTPC (excues the 'cable managment')

What the fudge ! weihk u just scared the heck out of me with the cableness !

Don`t like 775 twisty clip in thingies >.<

Anywho, nice review m8, looks like a great choice for htpc or even a regular pc if u`r scared of heights.

Don`t personally like the price, I think Scythe products are overpriced in the UK in general tho. Imo.

Took a note of the 775 retention bracket, and I notice they`ve stripped the curves from the central section. This is a good thing, I`ve just had to hack a section away on one due to caps.

Nice job fella, well written as usual

One thing though, I really think graphs should start from zero (the noise level graph), I find those styles of graphs to be misleading at first glance. Often people see a graph; higher is better 'woah, that one is loads better' when in reality the difference is small.

Obvously this is my personal opinion, not sure how other people feel but whenever I see this type of graph used on review sites I instantly become suspicous, as if the site was trying to mislead the reader (not that you would ever do that mate).
