What about Grand Kama Cross 2 (SCKC 3000)? Is it compatible with AM4 or not? I'm asking, because It's not listed there and I have no idea if I need to buy a new cooler

Hi CryZen,

Sorry for incomplete information, we will correct the list.

The Grand Kama Cross 2 (SCKC-3000) has the same mounting system as Grand kama Cross 3 (SCGKC-3000), so it needs the same AM4 kit. The kit can be ordered from us directly.

Default SCNJ-1000 work with AM4?

Hi Sansay,

I have used a Ninja CPU cooler more than 10 years, and i love it. It's the first version of ninja series. I think it's the Ninja 4 (SCNJ-1000). Now I changed to AMD Rysen procesor and i woud like to use my old friend Ninja. If I bought the AM4 mounting kit will it work with my Ninja?

Hi K21,

Unfortunately, there is no way to mount the Ninja 1 (SCNJ-1000) on the socket AM4. Sorry.
