I am afraid not. Quote from Scythe homepage concerning 1156/1366 clips:

Please note that this LGA1366 Mounting Clip is NOT compatible and can NOT be used for the former Ninja CPU Cooler (Model Number: SCNJ-1000, SCNJ-1100, SCNJ-1100P). Orochi is NOT compatible, either.

Hi there


I also have Ninja PLUS Rev B and I am wanting to use it for Socket 1156 motherboard

I see the mounting clip ( http://www.scythe-eu.com/en/products...ing-clips.html ) which Scythe has available does not support Ninja PLUS Rev. B model, because the dimensions seem to be different

As per this picture http://www.scythe-eu.com/fileadmin/S...Rev_B-Base.jpg dimensions for Ninja PLUS Rev. B are around 38mm x 31mm for the heatsink

But the Ninja 2 dimensions, for which the bracket was made for are around 54mm x 54mm http://www.scythe-eu.com/fileadmin/S...ja-2-unten.jpg

So mounting bracket will not fit


However, Ninja 3 dimensions are 38mm x 38mm which is very close to Ninja PLUS Rev B http://scythe-eu.com/fileadmin/Suppo...mensions-2.jpg and Ninja 3 comes with this mounting kit http://www.scythe-eu.com/uploads/tx_...cessory_01.jpg which looks like it could fit the screw holes for Ninja PLUS Rev. B

Also this mounting kit looks like it is very close to fitting Ninja PLUS Rev. B
http://www.scythe-eu.com/forum/attac...sparepart2.jpg


Are they compatible? Must only be a few mm difference...
I measured screw holes for Ninja PLUS Rev. B to be 18mm x 45mm apart

If it cannot fit, are you going to make a mounting kit that is similar to Ninja 3 or Mugen 2 that has two sets of screw holes that fit both Ninja 3 and Ninja PLUS Rev. B? It looks like it is very close in dimensions to fit

Thank you

Hi kingbird72

Sorry, no mounting kit for the Ninja Plus Rev.B to mounted with S.1155.
The distance between mounting holes on the cooler base is smaller than newer cooler, so do not fit new bracket.

Hi, guys

I just want to let you know that the Ninja Plus rev. B (SCNJ-1100P) can be mounted in socket 1155/1156 motherboards by modifying the original socket 775 mounting bracket.
All you need to do is remove the push pins, get a 4.5 mm or 5 mm round file and extend the holes by 2 mm at each end. It's really easy, I just mounted mine on a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 with a Celeron G540 fanless and it works beautiful!

Well, that's what I meant, but unfortunately my English is not as good as I would like and I forgot to take pictures, so thank you for making it clear.
I'm pretty happy that I still can make use of my old trusted Ninja, it was a 10 min job and it didn't cost me too much, the only downside is that it still uses the puny push-pin system, but hey, my Celeron doesn't break 50 C under load, even without a fan, so I can't really complain.

Default AM2 / Am2+ CPUs only 87% contact with Ninja PLUS Rev. B base plate

The Ninja PLUS Rev. B base plate is 40mm x 35mm and the Am2 / Am2+ CPU's are 40mm x 40mm. That means only, roughly, 87% contact between the base plate and the CPU.

I can fit my Ninja PLUS Rev. B to my Asus M2N32 SLI DELUXE (it's a bit of a squeeze but it just about fits), but I'm concerned about the 40mm x 5mm strip of CPU that's not covered by the base plate.

Is it okay to use a Ninja PLUS Rev. B with a CPU if the CPU isn't completely covered by its base plate?

I was intending to use the Ninja+Rev.B with an AMD Phenom II x4 950; would this be inadvisable given that its base plate doesn't cover the entire CPU?

Thanks.

Edit: I just took a look at the stock cooler that came with the CPU and it has, at the core of the heat sink, a base that measures 30mm by 30mm. It does have fins emanating from that base that also contact the surface of the CPU but I'm sure the combined contact area between the stock heat sink and the surface of the CPU can't exceed 87%, so can I assume it should be okay to use the Ninja+Rev.B in place of the stock cooler? The stock cooler does have a fan blowing directly down on to the CPU where the Ninja+Rev.B has the fans blowing across its fins and so has no down-draft.

Given all of the above, should I use the Ninja+Rev.B or should I get a new heat sink?

Thanks.
