There is CNPS2XL at Computex 2019
Hope L means "large" not "lite", but maybe is the second while looking AMD mounting bracket
Seems like a Lite/Cheap'o version to me because of the clip mount instead of the full screw & backplate bracket system. Also doesn't seem bigger at all.

Does anyone know if it is worth using the Scythe Jitte Plus in 2019? Just read through this thread and it seems interesting. How is it for compatibility and does anyone know if they are still on Taobao?

i think it's definitely a worthwhile cooler at such a low price. it can get pretty loud if you're trying to cool a 95w tdp though. it doesn't use a backplate and it has good topside compatibility. they're still available on taobao. try this link.

@NinoPecorino - Cheers, in UK terms that is about £21.65 ($27.34) before any shipping/taxes/agent fees. Might get it and swap the top fan for a noiseblocker 25mm seeing as the noise is a common complaint. Just need to get mounting clips!

Saw this cooler recently appear on google express. Bunch of folks talked about testing it already (@Thehack and @IntoxicatedPuma) , but having it on Google express means there's a 20% off for first time shoppers i.e. 30 bucks for what looks like a taller looking Noctua nh-l9i. It is specified height of 52mm, so might be close for most.



Aliexpress has the same.

This guy on Reddit installed one in a SM550, says he is getting 7 - 10C better temps than the Ryzen cooler. He did say it is just slightly too tall, the screw heads for mounting the fan cause the side panel to bulge slightly. Should fit in the Ghost with no problem.

To avoid this screw heads in other coolers I've used, I've made fan clips like the stock ones in most tower coolers, using some pieces of generic hard wire. Just some bends with the plier and done

Adding some AM4 coolers I'd like to find reviews for.

If you're looking for AM4 mini ITX coolers with good performance meeting height constraints, feel free to add to the list!


Noctua NH-L12S, 70mm (?w) - $49

Noctua NH-L9x65 SE-AM4, 65mm (?w) - $49

Noctua NH-L9a AM4, 37mm (?w) - $38


Cryorig C1, 74mm (140w) - $67 / hard to find makes it $$$

Cryorig C7 G, 47mm (125w) - $? /
Cryorig C7, 47mm (100w) - $33 / positive reviews, fan can be a bit noisy. hard to find makes it $$$

Jonsbo HP-400 Zone - 36mm (110w) - $19 / reviews seem positive and cant beat the price/performance.
maybe even better with Noctua 9214 fan.


ID-Cooling IS-60 - 55mm (?w) - $37

ID-Cooling IS-50X - 55mm (130w) - $36
ID-Cooling IS-50 - 55mm (130w) - $34

ID-Cooling IS-40X - 40mm (?w) - $25 / poor reviews.. some say stick to the Noctua NH-L9 or Cryorig C7

ID-Cooling IS-30 - 30mm (?w) - $25 / seems to be good reviews

Adding a 92x25 fan might help, as well you can undervolt

It all depends on the load you intend to put on the cpu, and how you feel about fan noise.

I'd like to see a direct comparison between pallas120, bs3 and black ridge using the exact same fan. These 3 have fluctuating results according to every reviewer using different fans, stock and custom, but none used the same on the 3 heatsinks. Seems to me they will perform the same, and I'm interested in this face-off. Pallas and black ridge have much less momentum and coverage on their results, specially the Pallas120....
