As the photo below shows, this one-piece clip is attached to the heatsink with four screws, just like the 478 clip.

AM2 clip.

We know that the AM2 heatsink retention bracket is quite sturdy, and it's usually attached to the motherboard with four hefty bolts. However, this retention bracket is made of plastic, and it features only two lugs. A kilogram seems like a lot of mass to be hanging off these two plastic lugs.

Are these plastic tabs strong eough to hold >1kg of cantilevered mass? Scythe thinks so.


A Scythe Slipstream 120mm fan is supplied with the NinjaCU. It's rated for 800 rpm, and the absurd stated SPL of 10.7 dBA (presumably at one meter). The latter specification stretches the imagination. Where in the world did they measure it, and with what kind of equipment? Nevertheless, this is a smooth, quiet fan.

It's a slow speed sleeve bearing 120x25mm fan..
