M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow Pass-through Structure) The developed M.A.P.S. (Multiple Airflow pass-through structure) is a completely new fin structure, where the airflow generated by the Scythe Slip Stream 120 PWM Adjustable fan. Ninja 3 fanless performance could be improved up to 7% compare to the former model by using the M.A.P.S. in combination with eight heatpipe high-performance design.
F.M.S.B.2 (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate 2) Improved version of F.M.S.B (Flip Mount Super Back-Plate), the compatibility has been maximized as well as achieving the solid mounting of the cooler onto the motherboard. Scythe Ninja 3 provides broad socket compatibilities for AMD & Intel platform.

Excellent cooler. I had never installed an aftermarket cooler like this before, and it was nowhere near as difficult as some people made it out to be. It still took me a while, and removing the motherboard was a bit of a pain. At the lowest fan setting, the cooler is completely quiet, and my overclocked Haswell cpu dropped from 90C at load to 50C, and from 55C at idle to 23C. An excellent value for the money as long as you have the clearance in your case to accommodate the size. Also, you might want to install your RAM in the slot under the heatsink if you think you might want to add more ram at a later date.
If it is your dream to bleed and sweat while building a rig then this is the cooler for you! I've installed scythe's before but this one takes the cake. The amd mounting system for it looks alright but because I belong to team blue I was left with a bloody knuckle and a sweaty brow by the time I BOLTED this thing to my board. It will never be removed. Idle temp of 30 C on a 95w haswell.

It really does work well, but you have to watch the mounting on this thing. It can warp a motherboard. I had to swap motherboards for it to work. If you have the patience, and the time, and mount it perfectly, it is very effective.
I purchased this to replace the stock Intel HSF for a Core2Duo in my server. I wanted something that could operate passively if required, and in this case, it worked perfectly! My Core2Duo operated at 34'C with the Intel HSF, and with this cooler, I have 28'C, WITHOUT A FAN!
