Question Can the original Ninja (SCNJ-1000) be mounted on a socket 1155 board?

Hi all,


because I have one piece of this good old Ninja cooler (SCNJ-1000) here:

Can the original Ninja (SCNJ-1000) be mounted on a socket 1155 board?

Thanks for help!

Yes, with this: Universal Retention Kit 3: CPU Kühler, Lüfter, Lüftersteuerung, PC Netzteile von Scythe

You need the original Socket 775 clip that came with Ninja 1 Rev A. The pushpins are removed from this clip and then you can mount Ninja on Socket 1155 or 1366 with screws and backplate from the kit.

It won't work this way. I have to apologize for giving you wrong information. This problem is that there is no appropriate clip for the cooler side available which has the necessary distance for the Socket 1155 or 1366 holes. I forgot that when thinking about a solution.

Big Sorry!

No, it didn't work

I bought the Scythe Universal Retention Kit 3, but unfortunately this has no support for the Ninja SCNJ-1000/SCNJ-1000P at all...

The original Ninja uses clamp mounting and two mounting bars that were supplied with the CPU cooler.
The information that Oli gave here is wrong: The problem with the the Scythe Universal Retention Kit 3 is that it doesn't support mounting bars. Hence it can't be used in conjunction with the Ninja, only with other coolers that I don't know...

In case you wish to use the original Ninja (which was a great CPU cooler!) and don't throw it away just because Scythe doesn't offer an appropriate 1155 mounting kit, buy a Socket 1155 mainboard that also features LGA 775 socket holes - like the ASRock H67M-GE/HT S1155 M-ATX.

Dangit, I really wanted to keep using my Ninja


Maybe a TR mounting kit will work with 1156...

Hey guys, keep posting, especially about other methods (like Tr kit) to install the original (first) Ninja. I too have it, love and don't want to spend money on a new cooler for my coming 1155 setup. And no, I don't want an Asrock - I'm looking to buy MSI or GB board.

hallo in die hamburger nachbarschaft!

ich habe eine frage zur verwendung von älteren - hier speziell natürlich der des ninja 1 rev b - kühlern auf meinem asrock z68 extreme4.
grds ist es scheinbar durch zusätzliche 775 versetzt angebrachte mounting holes auf dem board mgl den alten 775er kühler zu verwenden.

jetzt meine frage: hat sich bzgl der bauweise der sockel etwas verändert?
oder passt der kühler auch von der montagehöhe auch für die neuen so 1155?
meine frage zeilt auf den anpressdruck der so entsteht.
ausreichend / zu wenig / vlt too much...?

würde mich über eine antwort freuen und schicke
grüße aus eilbek

Da hat sich nix getan. Bei den AsRocks mit 775er Löchern kann man die Kühler mit den 775er Clips problemlos nutzen, wenn es grundätzlich vom Platz her passt.
