Scythe Infinity HeatPipe CPU Cooler

It's bigger! It's better! It's new and improved! It's yet another heatsink from Scythe. Not that it's a bad thing. Scythe seems to release a new heatsink every other month or so, and by and large, they're all pretty good.

The Infinity seems poised to pick up where the Ninja left off. The Ninja made its name by being bigger than any other cooler on the market, but the Infinity is bigger in every dimension and 150 grams heavier to boot. Perhaps Scythe has something to prove other manufacturers have built similar heatsink behemoths and the Ninja is no longer the undisputed leader it once was.

In any case, it will be not be a surprise if the Infinity outperforms the Ninja. It has too many heatpipes and too much surface area not to do well. But there's more to a heatsink than just performance. We've already shown that, with the right system airflow, the Ninja is good enough to cool just about any processor passively. With the current downward trend in CPU power consumption, the vast majority of users simply have no need for anything better than the Ninja. And, although overclocking guarantees that there will always be a market for the best performing heatsinks, other factors, such as compatibility, ease of use, and price, will probably be more relevant to most users.
