Which Scythe? The Mine or Ninja I mentioned. Id say its better than the Mine and about equal to the ninja! However, the scythe mine is the best bang for the buck.

You will also want a MX-1 Thermal pad with that..

Its ok, but I believe the Tuniq Tower/Scythe mine/Ninja or thermalright Ultra 120 E are better.

Here is the Scythe Mine.
Newegg.com - Scythe SCMN-1100 100mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - Retail

Oh and FYI, people that write reviews on newegg are retarded..

So Please don't read them.

The person probably did something wrong during the mounting to cause the damage to the motherboard...
