Scythe Ninja 5 CPU Cooler Review

Conclusion and Verdict

Scythe Ninja 5 is an improved version of the already great cooler so it simply has to be great too. The Ninja 5 handles well all desktop processors except maybe AMD Threadripper which it doesn’t support. Regardless if it’s lower or higher series processor, we can count that Scythe Ninja 5 will keep it cool while your PC will stay quiet. The main advantage of this cooler are silent Kaze Flex fans. Even under full load, fans are not spinning fast but still deliver high air pressure.

There are also a couple of other additions like rubber anti-vibration pads or complete installation pack that make this product perfect for all users.

I can’t find the Ninja 5 in popular, large online stores. I guess it’s just new product so we have to wait for delivery. Expected price will be about $50, all depends on the country, local taxes and other costs. I think it’s low price for so good cooler. Especially that competition doesn’t have anything better in similar price.



  • High performance
  • High quality
  • Quiet work
  • Inexpensive
  • Great fans


  • Nothing worth to mention


Final words:

Scythe Ninja 5 is one of the best CPU coolers we can find on the market. It’s well designed, performs great and is really quiet. If we add it’s also inexpensive then it’s hard not to recommend this product to all users who expect high performance or silent work, regardless if they are overclocking, playing games or simply spend time on daily work.

The Ninja 5 is one more great cooler from Scythe which receives our recommendation!
