I've got two Ninja 2's and I have been extremely happy with them. One of them is run on an AM2+ which already has a backplate and decent mounting stock. I do not run a fan on it, however, it is ducted to the rear fan. While inclosed in a desk behind a door, I don't think I ever got it over 50C on a Phenom x3 8450.

My second computer is a Q9300 OC'd to 3Ghz with the Ninja 2 and a Xigmatek bolt-thru kit. With all the fans in the P180B set to low (door closed), I top out at 55C.

I used to have a TRUE and it did cool well, but it required a noisy fan to do so. Because I have had such good luck with a Minja in a 3rd build, I thought I'd give the Ninja 2 a shot and got rid of the TRUE. I plan to make a support bracket for this as I did with the TRUE I had too.

With that said, I think that with proper mounting, this cooler is probably every bit as good as the original Ninja (revision B or whatever).

The lowest rating on newegg for the bolt through kit says you can't use it on AM2 boards. Is that correct or did the person that wrote that not think of removing the preexisting retention bracket?

That's.. because it's a 775 kit. It's not going to fit others.

I have just got my Ninja 2 and was pleased to find that the included fan is the SY1225SL12M, which came top of the fan review here:

http://www.silentpcreview.com/article83 ... .html#SS-M

I was under the impression that the Ninja 2 came with a different fan. I'm sure I read that somewhere! Anyway, it came with the best fan as standard, so that's good. I thought I was going to have to buy one separately.
