ahaha, sorry I said that wrong, I meant with its stock fan. Is the Scythe Ninja worth it to use just with its stock fan.

Stock ninja fan works great. The ninja is good enough to the point you can usually run it without a fan just for normal usage :)

Hmmmm.... I've read some reviews on the Ninja and especially in this one AnandTech: Cooler Master GeminII: Performer or Poser?
it points out that the stock fan doesn't nearly wow you like the hype does. Is it most likely that the review for the stock fan of the ninja poorly done? or is that really... the correct temps of the Ninja.
Scythe Ninja Rev.B CPU Cooler is another one.

I currently have a ninja fan in my case which is more than enough for airflow.

The Ninja is an excellent cooler for the price. I used an Antec Tricool fan on it, because it operates at a higher speed, with more airflow, but the stock fan is very silent, and does move a significant amount of air. You will more than likely not have to change it.

I have a Thermalright Ultima 90 sitting at home with two Scythe S-Flex SFF21E 120 mm fans. I will try them in a single and push-pull configuration and let you know how they work on my quad.

If you can get a Noctua cooler cheap enough and put some good fans on it it works very well. I have the NU-9F (92MM version) and with 2 Panaflo's it works very well for my B3 Quad. But I do agree, the Thermalright Ultra-120 is the top dog. The Ninja is best for lower airflow and silence and I don't think anything else in it's class can match it under those conditions.

Might as well go for the Ultra 120 if you go for the noctua.
