has announced the second generation of its Ninja CPU cooler, the Ninja 2.
The new generation brings improvements in both fanless and active cooling operation. In numbers, those improvements translate to up to 65W of TDP (5% increase) in fanless mode and up to 130W of TDP (15% increase) in active cooling mode, both at ambient temperature of 25°C.
Just like the previous generation, it comes with six copper heatpipes and an aluminum fin array. The new Ninja 2 comes with specially tuned "Slip Stream" 120mm case fan that spins at 1000RPM and produces 52.90 CFM of airflow at 20.50 dBA of noise. With weight set at 705g (+115g fan) Scythe's Ninja 2 supports Intel's socket 478/LGA 775 processors and AMD's socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+ processors.
The new Ninja 2 CPU cooler should be available soon with a price tag set at US $54.00 or €30.95 in Europe.
